Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the SIOP conference. Currently we have received enough volunteers and have closed requests as of 2/16/11.
Graduate Student Volunteers, Your Help Is Needed!
Last year more than 90 volunteers helped to make the SIOP conference a success. SIOP Graduate Student Affiliates interested in volunteering during the 2011 conference in Chicago must indicate their interest when registering online for the conference.
Students not registering online will need to attach a note to their faxed or mailed registration form indicating their wish to volunteer. Volunteers will be needed starting on the afternoon of Tuesday April 12 through Saturday evening. Upon completion of a 4-hour obligation, volunteers will receive a token of appreciation. Last year, student volunteers received a $60.00 prepaid Mastercard.
Each volunteer is obligated to serve a total of 4 hours, though it may be served in 2 or 3 different blocks of time. Volunteers assist in a variety of ways such as helping with registration and the assembly of materials and signs, as well as providing direction and information to conference attendees.
Volunteers are selected based on the time that they register and their availability for a particular day and shift. Tracey Rizzuto (firstname.lastname@example.org), Volunteer Coordinator, will notify each selected volunteer of his/her assignment 1 month before the conference.
