Volunteer Opportunities

The ACA offers a number of different opportunities for participants of every level to get involved in the proceeds.  Volunteers play a critical role in ensuring the overall success of the Annual Meeting! Volunteering not only assists the ACA and the ACA 2019 Annual Meeting team, but offers opportunities to engage our community and network, but  some positions offer financial compensation to help with the cost of attending the meeting.  

 


Mentor

The YSIG, with support from the AIP, is hosting a Career Development Workshop on Saturday, July 20, 2019.  Anyone who would like to be a participant/mentor in a networking activity is encouraged to indicate same when they register for the meeting.  Interested parties will be contacted by organizers prior to the meeting. 

 


Poster Session Judge

We are in need of many judges to review and score our posters in the poster sessions. By volunteering to be a judge at the ACA Annual Meeting, you will have the opportunity to share your expertise with the crystallographic community and provide valuable feedback to the student presenters.  Anyone who would like to be a poster session judge is encouraged to indicate same when they register for the meeting.  Interested parties will be contacted by organizers prior to the meeting.  

 


Session Room Monitors

We are pleased to offer registered Students & Post-docs attending the 2019 Meeting the opportunity to defray meeting expenses by participating as Session Room Monitors. Session Room Monitors operate audiovisual equipment, and room lighting, photograph the speakers (cameras provided), track and record attendance, and perform other tasks requested by the session chairs.  Those interested should apply online (in the quicklinks menu).
