Volunteer Newsletter: If You Volunteer, We Cheer!

There are 45 days, 15 hours, and 31 minutes until we March for Science in the streets of Atlanta! We still have so much left to do to prepare, and WE NEED YOUR HELP!

These are the volunteer roles we currently need you to fill. If you can volunteer your time to one or more of these activities, contact the person in charge of that committee. We can’t wait to hear from you!

There is no minimum amount of time to dedicate as a volunteer. Help as much or as little as you can! And if you have time to spare, meet us for dinner and drinks!
