you for offering to volunteer to help the Illinois
Sections of the
ACS at the Illinois State Fair. There are two easy steps
to follow to let us know when you will be available.
- Submit your name and contact information on our Signup Sheet .
Note: Even if you signed up last year, you will need to resubmit your data again this year. This is our way of insuring that we have your current contact information. Thank you.
- If you have
already signed up, you can directly follow a link to enter times for which you will be available, or at a later date come back here to
log back in and add to or change the timeslots for which you have volunteered. You can also log in to change any of your contact data or other signup information.
Some important notes:
- All volunteers will get free parking and a free admission to the Fair (a $15-$20 value). Because of delays in receiving admission tickets from DNR this year, the tickets won't be mailed out until August 8, so don't panic if you haven't received your packet until Wednesday, August 10. If you have registered by August 1 and haven't received your admission packet by August 12, please call 708-408-6023 and let us know.
- Here are some helpful maps. Our tent is in Conservation World, which is located in the north-west corner of the Fairgrounds. It is suggested that volunteers enter Gate 7 off Taintor Road, and park in the lot just across from the Fairgrounds, on the north side of Taintor, with the parking pass we will provide.
the web server is very slow to respond. Please be patient
when submitting your information.
- When you
first register, we ask you to provide a password. Pick
any password you like, but no spaces or special characters in it. If you wish to log back in
and change anything, by entering your password we will
know it is
a note of the password you choose.
- Follow the
link at the bottom of the registration form to a calendar
of all the dates and timeslots for which we need help. Please
click on as many of them as you feel you can be available
to help out. The number of volunteers already signed
up are listed at each slot. Please consider being available
on days where we are thin on helpers. We would like
5-6 volunteers for each timeslot. If a slot already
has a lot of volunteers could you be available on a different
day or time?
you need to come back and change anything on your contact information or scheduled dates, log back in and the form will
remember your original selections.
- If you are
volunteering to help set up our tent, please note that set-up
will be on TUESDAY, August 9 and WEDNESDAY, August 10 this year instead of Thursday
as it had been in some other years.
- We plan to use cell
phones to stay connected during the Fair, so if you
have one, please share the number with us.
- We will have available all the information you will
need to handle any of the tasks at our tent, and
answer any questions you might have.
any time you can change the timeslots for which you have signed
by following the link in
#2 at the top of the page. You
will need your password to log back in
to change your data.
