Volunteer opportunities

Interested students: Volunteer 10 hours of your time in exchange for a full conference registration. The time can be prior to the conference (e.g., kit stuffing and/or setting up registration) or during the conference (e.g., registration, room hosts, counting ballots, etc.). There are a limited number of slots available, so this opportunity will be offered to volunteers on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you would like to review a list of volunteer opportunities for various events at the conference, please contact Bill Gibbs at bgibbs@iise.org.
