March 18-23, 2012

Sacramento, California

 Attention all student members of ASPRS!

 If you have not already done so, plan now to attend this conference

as a Student Volunteer and pay NO registration fee.

If you are a student at an accredited college/university and would like to attend this conference without paying the required conference registration fee, consider serving as a Student Volunteer.  Note, volunteers are responsible for all other expenses including travel, accommodations and meals.

The Conference Volunteer Coordinator is looking for Student Volunteers to help from Sunday, March 18 – Friday, March 23, 2012.  In exchange for the opportunity to attend the General and Technical Sessions, visit the Exhibit Hall, and enjoy the Exhibitor’s Reception, Student Volunteers will be required to work at least 8 hours during the conference.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about the geospatial field, meet some of the top names in the industry, and explore job possibilities; you are encouraged to bring your resumé as a special area will be set aside for resumé postings.  In addition, the ASPRS Student Advisory Council has organized a Student-Employer Meet and Greet and informal evenings out for students during the conference.

If you are interested in attending as a volunteer, fill out an application and send it in.
