Volunteering at Conference

You must be an active AAAL student member through the dates of the conference in order to sign up. Should your membership expire between now and conference, you will need to renew your membership before volunteering.

Volunteers are also required to register to attend conference.

The volunteer sign-up for the 2019 AAAL Conference in Atlanta, Georgia is now available. 

Sign Up to Volunteer

When selecting a volunteer shift, sign up for one volunteer slot only. We encourage you to only select the time in which you are available. As a reminder, volunteering for the full shift is required in order for your conference registration fee to be waived.

If you sign up to volunteer and have already paid the conference registration fee, then your payment will be refunded to you after successful completion of your assigned shift. If you have already registered but have not paid, please contact AAAL Executive Office at info@aaal.org to discuss waiving the fee. If you do not fulfill assigned volunteer hours after your registration fee has been waived, then you will be invoiced for the full amount of your registration fees due and will no longer be eligible for volunteer positions at future conferences.

If you have any questions, please email the AAAL Executive Office at info@aaal.org.
