Want to volunteer at AECT? Kickbacks!

New Tiered Structure Attracts Convention Volunteers
A new tiered volunteer structure is now ready for implementation at the 2008 convention in Orlando! All that is needed are the volunteer applicants! This new system has been developed at the suggestion of the Graduate Student Assembly after the 2007 convention in Anaheim, in an attempt to provide volunteers flexibility in their schedules and compensation that reflects the level of commitment. A new volunteer application is posted at aect.org. Here are the details of the new system.


New Tiered Volunteer System
In conjunction with the AECT Graduate Student Assembly, AECT has created a new multi-tier volunteer system for its approximately 70 volunteers, who play an important role with the daily details of the AECT convention. Volunteers can help in the following capacities:

Skilled Volunteers-Registration Waived/12 hours of work
Skilled volunteers are students with technical expertise. Their entire conference registration is waived in exchange for 12 hours of work helping Larry Vernon with technology issues.

Volunteer Supervisors-Registration Waived/12 hours of work
Volunteer supervisors are students who have previous experience as volunteers. They will also have all of their registration waived in exchange for 12 hours of work as supervisors. They will oversee a particular area (such as registration, equipment, etc.) and will train a team of volunteers to their tasks, oversee their efforts, monitor their hours, and be responsible for ensuring adequate technical support for the presenters. Volunteer supervisors will report directly to Dalinda Bond.
