Volunteers will be paid a small hourly stipend in exchange for volunteering. Most shifts are around 4 hours in duration. We give priority to students and early career professionals when scheduling shifts, but all are welcome. You will be contacted by our Meeting Planner/Volunteer Coordinator to confirm your shifts in advance of the conference.  Thank you for your interest!
