Volunteering at the SRS
Volunteer Coordinator: SRS Staff (email@example.com)
We appreciate your interest in volunteering to help at the symposium!
Volunteers are integral to the success of an event such as SRS. Supporting students in their educational endeavors and research is an amazing feeling. The help we provide in making things seamless from event to event, the feedback we give through reviews and discussions with the students, and the help we lend in just helping attendees find the right places to visit is very satisfying. Volunteers help not only by making this event possible--they help to make it great!
Volunteers can be students, faculty, staff, or community members from a variety of backgrounds, and with varying expertise. Anyone is welcome to attend and/or volunteer!
Because the 2021 SRS is virtual, we don't need as many volunteers as past years. But we need volunteers who are tech savvy, can arrive early, stay for the entire session, and stay late after the session is done. Volunteers will also need to attend a prep session the week before SRS.
We can use volunteers for a variety of duties*:
- Assisting the Event Coordinators
- Putting Together Information Packets
- Giving Directions and Guidance to Attendees in the Zoom sessions
- Counting Attendees and Greeting Attendees in the Zoom sessions
- Acting as a Reviewer or EVALUATOR
- And even some things we are still thinking about!
*The 2021 SRS will be held virtually, so being tech savvy and computer literate is a big bonus!

Ready to volunteer?
Just fill out this quick form and we'll be in touch!
All of our events (Poster Sessions, Oral Presentation Dinner, and 3-Minute Speech Competition) will be taking place virtually.
Can I volunteer only for one session, or do I have to volunteer the whole day?
If you are able to volunteer for more than one session, that's great! If not, that's OK too. All we ask is that if you commit to one (or more) session(s), you honor your committment.
I'm presenting at the SRS, can I volunteer to help out for other times/events?
YES! We would love to have you join us. You'll see other presenters and information that you might miss otherwise.
