Call for Student Volunteers

The NCER 11 organizing committee is recruiting student volunteers for various supporting roles during the conference.

Student Volunteer Responsibilities

Students typically serve in the following capacities:

AV OPERATORS work during technical sessions and are seated at a Tech Table in the back of the meeting room. They are responsible for pulling up speaker PowerPoint files according to the program schedule and monitoring sound levels during presentations. All equipment is clearly labeled and most files are already downloaded on the laptop by conference staff.

MODERATOR ASSISTANTS help session moderators with putting the lapel mic on speakers, showing speakers how to work the remote control to the laptop/computer projector, familiarizing speakers with the laser pointer and making sure the speaker timer and timer cards are in place.

IMPORTANT NOTE: ALL student volunteers should plan to arrive at the host hotel by 12noon on Sunday, July 31 to get oriented with the environment, help the organizing committee, and assist with pre-conference preparations, including assembly of conference registration packets.

Volunteer Training Session

Before the conference begins, we conduct a training session for volunteers so you may familiarize yourself with the equipment get comfortable with the room set up and ask any final questions about your role as a volunteer.

How Are Volunteers Assigned?

Once the detailed program agenda is completed, we will email you the agenda so you can decide which sessions you want to work. Session requests are confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis, and it is possible someone else may have already signed up to work the same session you want. So in some instances, we may not always be able to grant your request.

Why Volunteer?

In return for service, students volunteers receive a free registration and free shared guest room accommodations (two people per room) for up to five nights. Airfare, meals and incidental expenses are not included.

How Do I Apply to be a Volunteer?
