2019 Call for Volunteers

Create connections during AHEPPP Portland by serving as a conference volunteer! Welcome new members, reconnect with past colleagues, and network with other conference attendees, speakers, and sponsors, while giving back to the association and contributing to the success of the 2019 AHEPPP National Conference.

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

Program Review Committee*

Volunteers are needed to review program proposals for the conference’s educational sessions.  This is a key committee, as you will have input into the content and direction of the conference sessions. Program proposal review will take place throughout the spring and summer. If you can’t wait to get started thinking about the conference this year and want to make a significant impact, this is a great place to start volunteering!

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.

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

At the Conference

Conference Registration

Welcome conference attendees to Portland, Oregon, 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.


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 Portland 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 2019!  If you’re an avid Tweeter or Instagrammer, this volunteer role is for you.  All you need to do is share your experiences in Portland 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!
