[ MARC Event Coordinator ]:
Congratulations!! Thank you for volunteering your time and becoming an Event Coordinator.
You play a critically important role in how successful we are when MARC participates in a charity event.
Many people will be looking to you for answers. Event sponsors may be wondering what type of support we can offer to them to make their event even more successful. MARC members will be asking for lots of information so they can verify their availability and prepare their equipment in advance so they can enjoy and volunteer on "event" day.
MARC developed the Event Information Record to assist in making sure our MARC members have the most complete, accurate information available. This allows them to prepare -- in advance -- and enjoy the day as they volunteer. Each record contains lots of "generic" information. Some, or all of it may be used for your particular event. Pick and complete the information you feel is needed.
Download and review the Event Information Record as soon as you become an Event Coordinator. It will assist you by reminding you of information you may inadvertently forget along the way ... start times (actually "show time" for our event volunteers), radio frequencies, starting locations, etc. There's even space for you to insert your contact information -- use what you want -- disregard the rest. If you don't want to be bothered at work, don't list a work number. If you only want e-mail, leave all other options blank.
More importantly, information can quickly be updated and published on the MARC-HQ web site.

Based on our past experience, we have developed the Event Information Record. This text-based ASCII file was selected for numerous reasons, but primarily because it is virus-free, easy to complete, quick to publish, fast to load (for viewing), and small in size -- allowing volunteers to obtain and print (using your local printer) the most accurate, updated information on that event -- as it becomes available.
Here's a suggestion on how to use it:
Another benefit of using the Event
Information Record is to standardize the information being published
to our members, and to prospective volunteers viewing our site. This
provides Event Coordinators reminders on information to be included and
provides members with maximum information for planning and preparation.
