Call for Volunteers

171st Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America

Salt Lake City, Utah, May 23-27, 2016

Graduate and Undergraduate Students,

The Acoustical Society of America (ASA) will be holding its 171st meeting on May 23-27, 2016, at the Salt Lake Marriott Downtown at City Creek Hotel, Salt Lake City, Utah.  The meeting will consist of 94 sessions spanning the full range of acoustic fields.  These sessions will contain poster and lecture presentations covering the frontlines of discovery in acoustics.  In addition, several exceptional social events are scheduled during the meeting where students, faculty, and researchers can mingle, make contacts, and discover more about cutting-edge advances in acoustics.

To help run the conference, the ASA is asking for student volunteers from local universities and colleges.  Volunteers will be primarily responsible for helping speakers with audio/visual (A/V) equipment during sessions.  If needed, volunteers will receive instruction on A/V equipment.  Some volunteers will also be needed to help with putting up and changing signs, moving poster boards, and with directing ASA tour traffic.  The level of effort for volunteers will be one full day.  Volunteers will be allowed to request sessions of most interest to them.

Compensation for volunteers will be $10 per hour.  The conference is free for undergraduate students (no registration fee).  Registration fees for graduate students range from $50 for pre-registered ASA student members to $135 for onsite-registered nonmember students.

Volunteering for an ASA meeting is a truly fantastic intellectual and career experience.  It not only allows you to feast on all of the latest developments in acoustics, but it also fully immerses you in the professional field and society of acoustical scientists, engineers, and researchers.  The experience also makes a great addition to your CV or resume since graduate schools, medical schools, and academic employers look for service and volunteer activities like this.  Finally, many students have found once-in-a-lifetime opportunities at ASA meetings for future graduate schools and employment.  ASA is more than just an opportunity to see some very interesting talks and to meet the scientists giving them—it is an opportunity to fully engage with an entire community.

Please e-mail me at the address below if you are interested in volunteering.  Thank you.
