National Conference 2016

NACAC and the 2016 LAC seek volunteers to assist with the many activities onsite at the National Conference. You do not have to be from Columbus to participate, but you must be registered to attend the full conference (Thursday through Saturday), unless otherwise noted.

Indicate the preferred committee for which you would like to volunteer in order of preference below. While we will do our best to accommodate your first choice request, once a committee is full, we will place you according to your second and third preferences.

All volunteers must be registered for the conference, so we will touch base with you after registration opens to remind you to do so. Any individual signed up to volunteer but not registered by August 2016 will not be contacted to select a volunteer time-slot. We thank you for your time and service to NACAC and the National Conference!
