To me, the word “rendezvous” always set a romantic mood; perhaps because the word is French. In my imagination, I saw lovers slipping away to “rendezvous” at some out-of-the-way café—or gazebo—or covered bridge. But when Workampers rendezvous, as they do in October, the meaning of the word is straight out of the dictionary: an appointed place of meeting.
The appointed place is the Heber Springs Community Center in Heber Springs, Arkansas, and the upcoming date is October 23-25. While the get-together has nothing to do with romance, the Workamper Rendezvous promises heady information for the RVer who dreams of a Workamping lifestyle. Heavy doses of pure fun and tastes of genuine Ozark cooking are mixed into the three days.
During the conference, three Workamper employers, Delaware North Companies for Parks & Resorts at Yellowstone National Park, amazon.com, and Adventureland Park, will virtually present the offers their companies make to Workampers. The companies will outline methods of application and the duties entailed on their jobs, as well as provide time for participants to ask questions.
In sixteen different seminars, ten presenters will cover components of the Workamping lifestyle from building a Workamper resume to RV maintenance and repair, security while traveling, and handling one’s taxes. Lee and I plan to give participants in our session a look at actual Workampers on the job and a peek into the incredible settings across America for Workamping jobs.
Two tracks run throughout the conference: one for dreamers—those who are thinking about the lifestyle and gathering information, another for experienced Workampers. Steve Anderson, President and Director of Possibilities at Workamper News®, Inc., takes dreamers from thinking about Workamping to implementing a plan for their dream . Using a 12 month timeline, Steve covers the nitty-gritty details that someone dreaming about entering the Workamper lifestyle should implement. In other words, a participant in Steve’s dreamers’ session will leave with an individualized how-to list for getting started.
For experienced Workampers, Steve talks about the early steps of researching future Workamping experiences and creating one’s outcome based on personal marketing strategies to provide a custom designed future. He advises that anyone attending this particular session should prepare by studying Workamper Marketing 101, available on a tuition basis at www.workamper.com/fivesecrets. During this particular seminar Steve plans to introduce Workamper Agency Services, LLC, demonstrating to attendees how to take their future Workamper marketing to a new level.
For attendees at the Rendezvous who start their days early,” Steve presents a 7:00 a.m. session on owning and running a business right from one’s own rig. During this presentation, Steve will introduce Workamper business ideas such as the Workamper Concierge Program, in which RVers can earn dollars simply by sharing with others about their Workamping lifestyle. The registration fee includes this session. For all participants who attend six seminars during the Rendezvous, a “certified” stamp is affixed to their Awesome Applicant Resume.
In addition to the informational sessions, networking with dozens of Workampers and Workamper Dreamers proves a valuable experience for one seeking to earn dollars and amenities out on the road. The Workamper News staff will be on hand to answer question about the company’s family of websites, products, and services. A bookstore filled with helpful publications by the Rendezvous presenters will be open during the three day event.
Autumn provides a colorful backdrop for Rendezvous attendees. The blue waters of Greers Ferry Lake and Little Red River contrast the yellow, red, and orange in falling leaves. Campsites are available on the shores of Greers Ferry Lake, as well as in several private campgrounds. Restaurants and unique downtown shops offer options for free time.
