SNAG is Looking for Help at SOFA

SNAG Volunteer logo

Every year SNAG hosts an information table at SOFA Chicago. This year we are looking for someone to oversee the volunteers and the table display.

SOFA Volunteer Coordinator assignments:

  • Set up the SNAG table between 9 am-12 pm on Thursday, October 31st, 2019.
  • Be the volunteer who sits at the table during the VIP Hour on Thursday evening from 5- 9 pm.
  • Oversee the table and volunteers during the rest of the weekend from 10 am-7 pm Friday and Saturday, November 1st and 2nd, and Sunday, November 3rd from 12-6 pm.
  • Pack up the materials and banner at 6 pm on Sunday and label them for FedEx pickup.

This position does not require you sit at the table the whole time. It does give you access to SOFA each day, plus VIP access to many special activities and the VIP Lounge. SNAG will cover your parking while at SOFA and you can record your volunteer hours with SNAG, earning hours towards a free membership, conference waiver, and more! You will be the official badge holder for SNAG during the weekend and the on-site point person for all volunteers. Typically we fill all volunteer slots, but we do need a person on-site in case something comes up or a volunteer misses their shift.

If you are interested in this volunteer coordinator position for SOFA, please email SNAG’s Executive Director Gwynne Rukenbrod Smith by October 15, 2019.

Register by March 7th for early bird rates! Online registration closes April 25th.

SNAG is celebrating 50 years as an organization. To talk about where we are going, we must talk about where we have have been. SNAG’s 48th Annual Conference, The Loop: Coming Full Circle will celebrate SNAG’s first 50 years by focusing on the history of our field and SNAG’s vital place within that history. Along with presentations that look backward to explore significant moments and concepts in our history, both personal and collective, we will emphasize space for critical discourse, concepts/ideas, and technical presentations that speak to current questions and issues that exist in the field today.

SNAG is delighted to announce that noted curator, educator and writer Namita G. Wiggers will be opening our 2019 conference with a Keynote presentation entitled “Bending the Notes” that synthesizes histories of jewelry and craft in North America in a broader socio-cultural narrative that includes those who make and the work they make in conversation with those who write, curate, and sell.

Learn more about all of the activities that will take place at the 2019 conference and register today!
