NACAC and the 2021 local advisory committee (LAC) seek volunteers to assist with the many activities onsite and online in conjunction with the National Conference.
If you are signing up to volunteer in person, keep in mind:
- Volunteers do not need to be from Seattle, although it helps for some subcommittees.
- Registration is required for all volunteer assignments except Material Stuffing (Monday) and if you are a student local to the Seattle area.
- Your information will be shared with the chairs for each subcommittee. The chairs will reach out to you in August for date/time and assignments sign-ups. You do not need to do anything else until that time.
If you are signing up to volunteer online, keep in mind:
- Volunteers must be a registered for the virtual conference. You will need access to the platform and all features.
- You must be in a location with steady WIFI, minimal noise, and the ability to be on camera.
