Volunteers assist in several areas of the conference (registration, exhibit hall, instrument lock-up, room monitors, etc.). They all attend a mandatory orientation session at the host hotel, and commit to at least three 4-hour volunteer shifts (12 hours of volunteering in total). In exchange, they receive a complimentary conference registration and a volunteer t-shirt.

If you are interested in volunteering at the 31st annual conference on October 19-22 at the Hilton Toronto Airport Hotel & Suites in Mississauga, please review the list of volunteer job descriptions and requirements (PDF), and the specific instructions for registration area volunteers (PDF) and room monitors (PDF).

On the volunteer application, you will be asked to indicate all volunteer jobs and shifts for which you could be available. When the preliminary conference schedule is published in late August, you can use it to figure out your availability at the conference. The more flexible your availability is, the more likely we will be able to accommodate your preferences.

IMPORTANT: Names, phone numbers and email addresses of TWO character references must be provided in the application form.

**Please note that a limited number of volunteers are required for the conference, and not all applicants will necessarily be selected as volunteers.

The deadline to apply is Friday, September 1, 2017.
