Volunteer update

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

The 2008 Democratic Convention will need 10,000 volunteers:

The newly installed top officer of Denver's host committee stressed Thursday that he wants to organize quickly enough to manage the thousands of volunteers asking to help. "It's a big task," said Mike Dino, who was formally announced as the host committee's chief executive at a news conference Thursday. "Everybody knows this is the biggest thing to come to town in a heck of a long time."

The Denver native and longtime Democratic strategist said he wanted the expected 10,000 volunteers to find a place. "We don't want to lose sight of the fact that we want to elect a Democratic candidate for president," Dino said. But when it's time to take down the bunting and sweep out the confetti, Dino said he hopes volunteers "feel like it was very worthwhile."
Volunteering at a convention is extremely rewarding, no matter what your role is.

I signed up to volunteer for the convention about a week ago, and still have heard nothing... Has anyone else signed up? And if so, how long did it take to hear back from them?
