Conference Volunteer Opportunities

2019 Conference Volunteer Opportunities


Volunteer: (verb) to offer (oneself or one's services) for some undertaking or purpose




Like many organizations, PaLA relies heavily on the willingness of our members to share their expertise and assist with the execution of projects, and this need comes fully into play at the annual conference.  Volunteering at the conference is a fantastic way to meet new people, hone your skills, or learn new ones and enhance your overall conference experience!
