volunteers NEEDED

SIETAR-USA is pleased to offer a limited number of volunteer opportunities for registered participants. You must apply in advance to become an on-site volunteer, and selection will be on a first-come, first-served basis. We also have various volunteer opportunities to help out prior to the conference, so let us know how you’d like to get involved at the email address below.

Volunteering to greet and register participants, help with silent auction, or prepping for special events are only some of the ways you can help at the SIETAR USA conference. Being a volunteer is a great way to meet and connect with fellow conference attendees while learning the ins and outs of running a conference.
