Volunteer for GIS-Pro 2014 and receive complimentary conference registration!*

URISA strives to involve students in the conference experience and offers a very affordable registration rate (as low as $50) for students. A limited number of volunteer opportunities are also available for complimentary registration (hotel and travel is not included). Student volunteers benefit greatly from the workshop/session content, being delivered by professionals in the field. The contacts made will be invaluable!


Workshop Assistant – On Monday (Sept. 8), both full and half-day workshops will be presented and student volunteers will be needed to help the workshop run smoothly (assist with attendance-taking and materials distribution, etc.).


Session Assistant On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (Sept. 9-11), nearly 30 breakout sessions will take place during the conference and session assistants help to keep things running smoothly, assisting the session moderator and locating staff members if there are requests or difficulties.
