You can volunteer for as many hours as you have available. To ensure you have what you need to be an effective volunteer, we'll have a general conference call to discuss logistics in October. We'll also have a conference call in September for our respite room volunteers. We'll also share regular updates about the conference agenda and tips so you feel confident and comfortable volunteering. To thank you for your help, you'll receive a free t-shirt, meals (continental breakfast, lunch), free access to any of our conference workshops and presentations, and our gratitude.

Our conference will take place on November 10 and 11, at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare, conveniently located minutes from O’Hare and a subway ride from downtown Chicago. Hotel parking for our conference is $3. To reserve a guest room for November 10 and 11, please call the Marriott at 773-693-4444. Ask for the National Caregiving Conference special room rate of $119 per night.
