Student Opportunities

Student Assistant

Volunteer students are needed for registration and audio/visual support during the conference. Student volunteers are required to be in attendance the entire conference, and be available to work 1/2 each day of the conference. The students will work either the first or second shift (i.e., morning or afternoon). For volunteering, the student will get their registration fee waived and $25.00 per a day worked for food allowance. This program is a first come, first served basis. A limited number of students will be needed for the conference. Those students interested should please contact Christine Card ( for details.
