Would you like to be part of making EAS 2019 a fabulous conference? If so, we have many different areas where you can volunteer. Volunteering has it perks, including a reduction in conference registration depending on how many hours you volunteer.
The following are guidelines to help you decide how many hours you wish to volunteer:
- If volunteering for 4 to 7 hours, you can attend the conference for the remainder of the day for free.
- If you volunteer for 8 to hours, you can attend a second day of the conference for free and get a volunteer t-shirt, or you can split the 8 hours of volunteering and 8 hours of attending talks between two days.
- If you volunteer for 16 hours (2 days), you receive a volunteer T-shirt and the other days of the conference for free.
