Volunteering Opportunity

Looking for a way to give back to the city before the conference starts?

What: Join the IISE Sustainable Development Division (SDD) and use your ISE, lean, quality and process improvement skills to support local nonprofits.

As we typically do each year at these events, we will gather as a group (or groups) following the work to debrief as a team.  During this debrief we typically put on our consulting hats and develop a list of recommendations for improvement for the nonprofit.

Who: IISE conference attendees and guests

Why: Use your ISE skills for a good cause while networking with fellow conference attendees

Where: Hyatt Regency New Orleans

When: Saturday, October 31, 2020, depart from conference hotel by bus at 8 a.m., with a 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. volunteer shift, and optional lunch after.

Click here to sign up by Sept. 13, 2020.

Clothing: To be determined, but expect to do some manual labor, so wear comfortable clothes that might get dirty or sweaty.

We will provide you with a waiver form that must be fully completed by each member of your group. We will have blank copies of the waiver available on site.

Any questions? Please contact the IISE Sustainable Development Division (SDD).
