Volunteer Call UTRID Conference

Hello all!
The UTRID 2019 “Feed Your ELK” Conference is just around the corner, and we are looking for volunteers from all corners of the community to help out! The conference will run Friday evening (8/2) and all day Saturday (8/3).
If you are interested in volunteering, please take a moment to sign up using this link:
It will ask you which area you are interested in helping out with (registration table, workshop floater, kitchen crew, etc.) and which dates and times you are available.
We will also be having a volunteer meet and greet the week before the conference. Stay tuned for further details about this event!

Katie Cook-Christensen

Hello! My name is Katie Cook!

I am a Deaf woman native of northern Utah. I am currently attending college majoring in education. I currently work at USDB/JMS as a teacher’s aide, and I absolutely love what I do. I am happily married to a hearing man and we have two hearing dogs in an apartment complex that can also very much hear us. My dog is currently an emotional support dog in the training process of becoming a service dog. My topic will be, of course, about my dogs. I am excited to share about my relationship with animals and why my dog is so incredibly important to me!
