Thank you for your interest in volunteering for SG 2013 Savings Groups Conference. We are no longer accepting applications.
We will need up to 8 volunteers for the two day event. Our volunteers will be instrumental to the success of this conference. We encourage graduate students, young professionals, or those interested in development initiatives to apply for this valuable opportunity to learn more about the field. We are seeking organized individuals with strong interpersonal skills and knowledge of the DC area.
In return, the SG 2013 registration fee will be waived for all volunteers and meals will be provided. You may also attend and observe select research and programming sessions. Transportation fees will not be covered.
The deadline to submit your application is February 4th, 2013. Please note we will not accept late applications.
We will need volunteers for the following roles:
- Sunday, March 3rd 12pm – 4pm
Pre-conference volunteers will assist in assembling program packets, setting up the registration area, posting session signs, and other duties.
- Monday, March 4th 7am – 9am
Conference registration volunteers will check-in pre-registered participants, register any new participants, distribute registration packets and name badges, and attend to general registration needs.
Workshop and Panel Sessions
- Monday, March 4th and Tuesday, March 5th 9am – 5pm
Session volunteers will assist in the set-up of each room 30 minutes before the session’s start. They will also ensure presenters have checked-in at morning registration, guide them to their designated presentation room, and assist in distributing session materials.
- Monday, March 4th and Tuesday, March 5th 8am – 5pm
Special projects will need to be carried out throughout the conference. These volunteers will have several different assignments throughout the day. Responsibilities may include directing conference attendees to all sessions and meals, assisting with book events, and guiding VIPs to their reserved seating and sessions.
Throughout the two days, all volunteers should be prepared to answer questions and provide information about the conference’s program and schedule. Volunteers may be asked about the DC area, so it may be helpful to know about local attractions, transportation, and restaurants. An orientation session will be held before the conference so that volunteers become familiar with the hotel, program, and details of their roles.
