Dear Margaret, I thought I would check in again with you to make sure you are still planning on attending the conference in late May. I need to finalize my volunteer schedule and wanted to confirm the hotel room at the same time- as I had forgotten to add you name. Meanwhile, do let me know when you are volunteering. I may not be able to swing it, but it would be nice to say hi to each other. I did have a disappointing experience with volunteering and wanted to know if you had the same. I volunteered to save the cost of registration. When Peter emailed us and told us he would be sending a schedule and needed to know time slots from us, I immediately emailed back with some of the events I wanted to attend and 2 hour time slots each day of 4 days that would work. I did not hear from him till 2 days ago, when he said he had "arranged to have me get the 1/2 off discount" because I had wanted to attend a lot of conference events. I only told him one event a day and was available the other half day. I would have been willing to do more than 2 hours, but do nto seem to have the opportunity as he waited until everyone else was scheduled before scheduling me. I replied to his email an hour after it was sent. Was my 2 hour offerings each day far less then what others are doing? I had been very flexible and would have added volunteer hours, but I was not given the opportunity and basically told I would be getting only 1/2 off and must work slots on the 2 busiest days, and the slots left conflict with the events I wanted to attend each day. I thought the whole thing unsmooth and was disappointed I both have to attend events that were not my first choices as well as that I have to pay half when they advertised registration would be waived. I was confused because I thought I sent the exact email he had wanted and told him I was available other hours the half day as well. What were your experiences? How many hours are you working? Were you suddenly told you would only get 1/2 off. It seems petty to ask Peter, whom I work with as a developer, so I thought I would ask you.
