When offered a chance to volunteer for a week in the Indi office in Parliament House, I naturally leapt at the opportunity. I’d been a player in the Voice4Indi crusade which had helped drive the great McGowan campaign and claim victory at the election, in addition to continuing my services as a volunteer during the Budget Impact Tour and again in the Wangaratta office, so why not?
Cathy’s volunteer guidebook for Canberra pointed out a few practical hints and tips and included an outline of several roles a volunteer may play during their time. More interestingly, it stressed that no matter how well planned a day may be, its schedule was subject to change at a moment’s notice, so keep on your toes!
