We are currently accepting applications for hundreds of volunteer positions throughout the conference— and the success of Aging in America is due in no small part to our volunteers! Each year we rely on volunteers to extend the reach of ASA’s small professional staff in support of a conference of more than 3,000 attendees, and we offer an attractive discount on conference registration fees to acknowledge the work and commitment our volunteers offer.
We are excited to offer you the opportunity to become part of Aging in America! In exchange for volunteering one day during the conference and attending a one-hour orientation, volunteers will receive registration fee waivers of up to 50% off the full amount of the registration fee. Apply and register early to make sure that you secure the volunteer shift you want. (See schedule and job descriptions, below.) When you are not volunteering, you’ll have full access to the conference including four general sessions, hundreds of workshops, the exhibit hall, lunch on one day of the conference and much more. Volunteers may receive CEU credits for sessions attended as registered attendees.
