2020 Call for Volunteers


Get the most out of your AHEPPP membership and volunteer to help with the 2020 Family Engagement in Higher Education National Conference in Orlando, FL! The conference relies on a large number of colleagues to make it an impactful and rewarding experience for all. Whether you're able to assist pre-conference or want the opportunity to network more during the conference, we appreciate any volunteers! 


Volunteers are needed to serve on the Program Review Committee, Awards Selection Committee and assist with Conference Registration, Hospitality, Educational Sessions, Social Media, and the Awards Ceremony. Below you will find a general description of duties for each volunteer category:

Prior to the Conference

Awards Selection Committee*
Help recognize the outstanding work of our colleagues by serving on the Awards Selection Committee. AHEPPP presents several awards to recognize creative institutional initiatives, print and electronic publications, contribution to research/literature, and contribution to the profession. As an Awards Selection Committee member, your feedback will help determine this year’s recipients. 


*Awards Selection Committee members may also serve as general conference volunteers.

At the Conference

Conference Registration
Welcome conference attendees to Orlando, Florida and the AHEPPP National Conference as a conference registration volunteer! Conference registration volunteers assist with check-in, distribute materials, and answer questions while providing excellent customer service to conference attendees.

Hospitality
As a hospitality volunteer, you’ll greet conference attendees and provide them with information about city hot spots, conference side trips, and restaurant recommendations. No need to be a Orlando native or expert; all the information will be provided to you!

Educational Sessions
Educational session volunteers serve primarily as session moderators, directing session attendees, introducing session presenters, distributing handouts and session materials, and encouraging attendees to complete session evaluations. You’re going to be attending educational sessions as a conference attendee, why not further contribute to the success of the conference by serving as a volunteer?

Social Media
Help us spread the word about all the great happenings at AHEPPP 2020!  If you’re an avid Tweeter or Instagrammer, this volunteer role is for you.  All you need to do is share your experiences in Orlando to let everyone know all the great stuff happening.

Awards Ceremony
Help to set up for the awards ceremony! We’ll have everything you need...simply show up to help create a celebratory atmosphere for this fun event!
