AGOG NEEDS YOU! SETS SIGHTS ON 40,000 VOLUNTEERS
Published January 4, 1995
AGOG will begin the process of recruiting more than 40,000 volunteers to assist in the Games. On January 17, organizers will begin statewide distribution of more than 200,000 application forms, who will then undertake a "lengthy screening process" before 40,000 will be asked to "participate in the largest volunteer work force in Olympic history." Linda Stephenson, ACOG's Managing Director for Olympic Programs, said the selection process will be "fair," adding: "We are making every effort to ensure the applications are widely distributed and easy to fill out" (Alma Hill, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 1/4).
