Volunteers Make Conference Happen!
Volunteers are our backbone!
Without them we wouldn't have the Room Hosts, Socials, Golf Tournament, or even Registration. Volunteering is a fantastic strategy to connect with your professional association. Through volunteerism, you meet new people, build your network and learn first-hand what goes on behind the scenes. Conference is dependent on the hundreds of hours of volunteer time each year and without those dedicated professionals, conference would cease to exist. We truly appreciate that you give back to APRA, your fellow members and the profession, through donation of your time.
A minimum of 4-volunteer service hours qualifies you for a 25% discount on your conference registration package. To access the discount registration code, you must first finalize details with the Volunteer Co-Chairs (contact information below).
Volunteer hours are carefully tracked. If a volunteer fails to complete their assigned duty/hours, they accountable to pay the remainder of the registration fee.
Available Volunteer Positions:
Are eligible to receive CEUs for sessions hosted. CEUs require additional fee.
Volunteers will assist speaker set-up, introduce the speaker at the beginning of each session, ensure all attendees are wearing a badge, record headcount, close room once space limit has been reached, remind attendees to rate the speaker and apply for CEU's post conference via the CEU submission link.
Registration Volunteers should be energetic and friendly!
Help attendees move smoothly through the registration lines, make sure the line is moving by directing attendees to the proper locations. Check-in delegates and out conference materials and answer general questions.
Volunteer check-in will ensure volunteer understands their volunteer position and all related information.
Speaker check-in desk will check in speakers, guide them to their proper breakout room and answer questions as needed. Notify AV staff if there is a problem.
Volunteers will assist attendees at specific APRA special events. Because many of the events are ticketed, volunteers will be asked to take tickets or check for badges at the door, assist with crowd control, and hold signage.
