Hi All,

We urgently need volunteers to staff the SIGAda booth at the Software Development Conferences in 2 weeks.  The conference is in Moscone Convention Center, San Francisco.  The schedule is below.

        Move in: Tuesday, 8:00 am - 6:00 pm

        Exhibit Hours:
                4/2 - 11:00 am to 6:00 pm
                4/3 - 11:00 am to 6:00 pm
                4/4 - 11:00 am to 4:00 pm

        Tear Down: 4 PM on 4/4

ACM will have a representative there to help out, but we need people who can set up the booth, talk about Ada, and help tear down.  I have to send in our staff lists ASAP.

Reasonable travel expenses may be available to anyone who is willing to help for a whole show (not necessarily in the booth for the whole show) and be the on-site booth manager.  To stretch our limited budget, people who are relatively local to a conference will be selected over someone who has to travel cross continent or overseas; but you never know.

We also need help for the other conferences listed below.  I've eliminated the conferences that have past, and Object Expo, which we will not be exhibiting at.

Please come help promote Ada!

Take Care,
Ada Awareness Manager

Once again I'm looking for volunteers to staff SIGAda's booth at conferences.  
Here's our current schedule through the end of year (* => tentative)

We need to finalize staffing plans for the March conferences by the middle of next

We like to have 2 people per exhibit day, so they can spell each other & have a 
chance to walk around.  We also need 1 person who can be at the Conference the 
whole time (although not necessarily in the booth the whole time) to be the on-site 
manager.  We also need 1-2 people to set up the booth (usually the people who 
staff the booth on the last day pack up the booth).

The duties are light and something that you should find easy to do, i.e. promote 
Ada.  We sell Ada CD-ROMs, handout Ada success stories, and talk to people.  
(We will be giving Vendor presentations at some shows, inc. both Object Worlds
& Object Expo.)

Let me know if you can help.

Take Care,
Ada Awareness Manager
