IJA Championships volunteers needed

IJA News in Brief

Hello jugglers,

I am the 2012 IJA championships director. I’ve started organizing the
event and am looking for volunteers for a number of positions. I’ve
included descriptions of each position below, the number of individuals I
need for the positions, and the skill sets I’m looking for. If you’ve
never worked in one of the positions before but would be interested in it,
don’t let that keep you from offering your services! If you’d like to
volunteer but don’t know in what capacity, let me know that too.

Feel free to send this message out to any local club lists you might have.
Similarly, if you know someone who might be good for one of these
positions, let them know about it and have them get in touch with me.

For more information about the competitions and some of the positions,
please refer to this page http://www.juggle.org/champrules/champsrules.php

If you’re interested in any of the positions, contact me by the e-mail
address below.

Thanks, and see you in NC!
