Volunteer Opportunities for ACHE in New Orleans

August 17, 2016 7:52 PM | Anonymous


Preparations for the ACHE 2016 Annual Meeting & Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana are in high gear. The list of keynote speakers has been finalized, the schedule has been published, and ACHE attendees across the U.S. are booking their stay at the historic Hotel Monteleone. There are many behind-the-scenes volunteers who help make all of this happen. From the conference planning committee to on-site coordination, the annual meeting and conference truly could not be as exceptional an event as it is without our extraordinary colleagues and friends. To help put the finishing touches on this event, however, we are calling on our member volunteers and asking for your help.  

How You Can Help

The 2016 Annual Meeting & Conference will run October 17-19. We are currently seeking volunteers to donate a bit of their time during the conference in one of two ways:

Session Presider (2 hours)

Session presiders are present during an assigned concurrent or roundtable session. They introduce speakers, coordinate session evaluations, and help keep session speakers on time. If you choose to volunteer to be a session presider, you will be asked to preside at one of the sessions during the conference.

Sign up to preside at a specific session

 On-Site Registration Table Volunteer (2-4 hours)

The registration/information table at the annual conference is staffed during all open hours of the conference, so someone must always be there. It’s a big job, and we need your help! Registration table volunteers will be asked to give between 2-4 hours of their time to assist our home office staff and planning committee volunteers.

Sign up for a specific time to assist at the registration desk

As a small thank you, we will be listing the names of all of our volunteers’ institutions in the ACHE conference program as hosts of our 2016 Meeting & Conference. Come to New Orleans and help us make this conference our best yet!
