Volunteers are preparing for Creating Change in Houston



IMG_3012Volunteer orientation sessions began today at the Hilton of the Americas-Houston. We have a record-breaking number of volunteers signed up to help out during the conference – over 600! We’re excited for all of the volunteers because we expect this to be the largest¬†National Conference on LGBT Equality: Creating Change¬†ever!

We anticipate over 4,000 attendees for this year’s conference and there are over 350 workshops and sessions scheduled.

Conference director Sue Hyde led the first orientation, welcoming volunteers and explaining the various roles that volunteers play in support of the event.
