Western Staff and Leaders' ConferenceWestern University


What do conference volunteers do?

Western employees are invited to get involved in the conference by becoming a volunteer during conference week. Volunteer roles include: greeting people, directing "people traffic", managing handouts, introducing and thanking presenters, and setting up and taking down signage for the conference.

Who can volunteer?

Any employee who plans to attend the conference may choose to register as a volunteer.

How much time do I need to commit?

Volunteers must commit to attending a Volunteer Preparation Meeting, and should be available to assist at multiple sessions throughout the conference. A preparation meeting will be scheduled in early February and interested volunteers will be contacted with details. At the meeting, volunteers will receive the volunteer schedule, nametags, and instruction specific to their role.

During the conference, volunteers are asked to arrive 15-20 minutes before the conference sessions begin.

How do I sign up?

Simply register for the conference, and indicate at the end of your registration that YES -- you would like to be a volunteer. After the registration period closes, we will contact you to let you know which sessions we would like help with.
