ASIS&T 2012 Annual Meeting

October 26-30, 2012

Baltimore, MD

Respond by September 13, 2012


To help ASIS&T student members who might not otherwise be able to participate in ASIS&T meetings, we provide an opportunity to attend the sessions and network with other members in exchange for assisting us in running the meeting.  Students who have participated in our program have found the experience “terrific.”


How the Program Works:


In exchange for complimentary registration, we’ll ask you to help us run the conference.  You’ll serve as a room monitor for about three sessions each day for three days.  In addition, you’ll help out either at our registration desk or conference headquarters for a 4-hour period on one day of the conference. We’ve listed below the activities that you are expected to perform as part of the program.


1.             Monitoring Sessions

  We’ll solicit your choices of sessions, by time period, and try to schedule you into the sessions you prefer wherever possible.  Monitoring involves assisting the speakers and moderators, checking for name tags at the door, ensuring that the necessary AV equipment is on hand, encouraging participants to complete evaluation forms, and generally helping makes the session go smoothly. Volunteer will also be required to obtain copies of slides and presentation.

(Additionally, you will be expected to SMILE AND BE FRIENDLY!)


2.             Registration

  Registration assistance involves facilitating the registration process, keeping a record of registrants, handing out materials, etc. 


3.             Placement Center

  The Placement Center office is kept open throughout the meeting for the convenience of attendees and employers to network and interview.
