6. Benefits 

If you are chosen to be a 2019 Ghee Getter, you will receive the following benefits;

– Complimentary Ticket to the Conference

This ticket is valid for the main 3 days of the event (Friday 1st March 2019-Sunday 3rd March 2019). You also have access to the Friday night networking reception, Saturday banquet, Sunday breakfast and exhibitor hall. Please note, any guests you bring to the event must purchase a ticket

– Complimentary Access to all Video Recordings

These will be available 6-8 weeks post the event. The link will be emailed to you

– CEU’s for Each Session Scanned & Attended 

As we have changed the way CEU’s are earned for this Conference, you will only be able to earn CEU’s for the sessions you attend in full. We are therefore asking volunteers to choose shifts around the speaker sessions they want to see as you may not be able to attend a full session while you are on shift and earn a CEU credit for it. We will do our best to accommodate but need to ensure the smooth operations of the event first. This is why we are giving you access to all conference recordings so you can earn CEU’s by submitting a report for any you may have missed

– All Meals & Beverages

While on shift you will have access to complimentary meals and beverages

– A Fabulous Ghee Getter T-Shirt 

Just for you! We ask that you wear this t-shirt with black or blue pants and comfortable, sensible shoes. No jeans please

– Access to the Ghee Getter Lounge

We have a special space for you to get ready and get briefed, as well as relax and unwind during your shifts. Please note, people will be coming and going from this room so we ask that no valuables are brought with you on shift
