    Descriptions and expectations for volunteer roles

    As a conference volunteer, you will:

    • Participate in decisions and strategic development for the conference
    • Be instrumental in setting the conference vision
    • Work with other dedicated, talented leaders in the HR community
    • Contribute and strengthen your individual skills (organization, leadership, communication, technology, logistics, etc.) within a team environment
    • Cultivate your management skills by identifying and leading a subcommittee and/or on-site volunteers

    Skills needed:

    A successful event requires a dedicated team with diverse skills:

    • Organizational skills necessary for developing sessions and schedules
    • Project management and ability to prioritize workload to meet deadlines
    • Communication (oral and written) at all levels
    • Conducting meetings (e.g., working with speaker panels or leading subcommittees)
    • Teamwork and willingness to support other team members
    • Listening skills
    • Troubleshooting, knowing when to escalate an issue

    To keep registration rates low, these conferences always run on a tight budget. Volunteers should expect to pay some of the registration fees and possibly cover their own travel and lodging expenses.

    Please consider contributing your time and talents!
