Volunteers are the heart and soul of the IASWG symposium. IASWG will select around 50 volunteers to perform tasks related to registration, hospitality, session oversight, traffic direction, social media, logistics, set-up and tear-down. In exchange for your time and effort, your registration fee will be waived and you will receive a discount on your Friday Gala ticket.

In order to be considered for a volunteer assignment, applicants MUST:

  • Be a current IASWG student member

  • Attend a volunteer orientation session before or at the symposium
