Become a Volunteer
BPA is looking for volunteers at our upcoming conferences to assist with sessions. We need volunteers for both our Upper Midwest Regional event (Oct. 11-12, 2021 in Minneapolis, MN) and our 2022 national conference (April 11-14, 2022 in Nashville, TN).
Conference volunteers (i.e., session assistants) assist in sessions during the conference to ensure that each session runs smoothly. Each session is staffed with two assistants: an up-front assistant and a logistical assistant. The upfront assistant has a more prominent role and starts each session, which would require someone who is comfortable speaking in front of others, making introductions, etc., while the logistical assistant helps track attendance, scans attendee badges, and assists presenters as needed.
Session assistants select the Track they’d like to assist in and the position they’d prefer (up-front or logistical). Volunteers receive complimentary registration, including meals, reception, and the ability to earn CEUs.
