Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Western Section’s Annual Meeting!
Volunteer opportunities include checking participants into the conference, working the audio/visual & lights in a session, helping out with an evening event or workshop, etc… Volunteers must pay to register for the meeting and they will be reimbursed after they work their scheduled hours. (A check will be mailed within 2 few weeks after the meeting ends.) The Western Section is reimbursing $100 (the Student/ECP registration rate) for approximately 8 hours of volunteer work. We will also help volunteers figure out shared hotel rooms at the Peppermill Resort with other volunteers. We have limited funds available to reimburse volunteers for their shared room cost on a first-come, first-served basis based on the date the volunteer application form is received.
So, are you ready to have a blast and meet lots of great people? Past volunteers have made great connections with their future employers while volunteering at our meeting!
The process is very simple:
Complete the Volunteer Application Google Form: Volunteer Application Google Form
We will review the applications and up to 25 people will be selected into our volunteer program based on their overall schedule availability and the date their volunteer application was submitted. Volunteers are encouraged to apply before December 16, 2016. Positions are first come, first serve, but don’t hesitate to contact the volunteer coordinator at the last minute for possible openings. By mid-January, we will confirm volunteers accepted into our program and a firm volunteer schedule will be distributed. Volunteers accepted into the program will need to register and pay online for the meeting to confirm their acceptance as a volunteer. As you would expect with a great meeting, spots fill up fast!
If anything changes (especially your schedule), please do not hesitate to contact us ASAP and please do go back and edit the volunteer application form to note any schedule changes.
We hope to hear from you soon. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Have a wonderful day,
Patrick Tweedy, 2017 Volunteer Coordinator
