Volunteer Opportunities

Speaker Host

As a speaker host, you will be the primary point of contact for a speaker at Star of the North. This is a very important role as you provide their first impression of the hospitality of the Minnesota Dental Association, and are able to help facilitate the smooth operation of the conference. It is also a unique opportunity to get to know an expert in your field and learn from them in a personal setting. Email son@mndental.org to learn more!

Responsibilities

  • Reach out to the speaker prior to the show, make them feel welcome and answer any questions they may have.
  • Be available for the speaker throughout the conference, to provide company and support with any issues that may arise.
  • Moderate their sessions, including introducing them and making announcements.

Benefits

  • Complimentary breakfast and lunch in the VIP Hospitality Suite.
  • Complimentary reserved parking on the day(s) you are hosting.
  • Complimentary admission to all of the speaker’s lectures/workshops (includes CE credits).
Room Host

As a room host, you will be assigned to “host” a specific session. You may volunteer to host more than one session. This is an important volunteer opportunity, as you will be the face of Star of the North for attendees, and the first line of response should an issue arise. Email son@mndental.org to learn more!

Responsibilities

  • Greet attendees and check they are in the right place (with the right ticket!).
  • Answer attendee questions about the conference.
  • Monitor the room and respond to any issues that arise.
