Volunteers play a vital role in helping to make UMISC a great conference. Volunteering is a wonderful opportunity for students, nonprofits, and private individuals to attend the conference at a reduced rate or no cost. Volunteer tasks include:

  1. Register attendees (a 1-hour pre-conference training by phone may be required)
  2. Hand out conference materials
  3. Direct attendees to concurrent sessions and other venue areas
  4. Conference set-up or tear down (Sunday pm or last shift Wednesday only)
  5. Door check badges or tickets
  6. Load presentation on laptops for concurrent sessions
  7. Other on-site support

Volunteers who commit 4 hours of time will receive 1 full day of conference attendance complementary; 6 hours of volunteer time = 2 full days of complementary conference attendance. Volunteers who commit 8 hours of time will receive the full conference attendance complementary.

To volunteer, please visit: https://www.umisc.net/volunteer.html and submit the requested information.

Remember, you can count your conference attendance as Advanced Training! This is another great chance to “double dip!”
