Student Challenge

The Spokane Student Activities Committee is challenging both in-person and virtual students to complete a list of tasks which will encourage participation and networking at the Annual Meeting.

Checklists with the tasks will be distributed to students when they receive their meeting badge, or via the conference website. Students should submit completed checklists to the registration desk or the Student Challenge coordinator in order to be entered into a raffle drawing for a chance to win an awesome prize.

 

Volunteering

Students, do you need monetary support to attend the Annual Meeting? If so, please consider volunteering! Volunteers are crucial to the success of the meeting. Sign up will occur during online meeting registration beginning in May 2022. Student volunteers will be paid after the meeting. There is no minimum volunteer time commitment (unless you are receiving an AFS travel grant with a volunteer requirement). Hourly volunteer rate is $15/hr, and students will get reimbursed afterwards via check or cash. Contact Brian Missildine at [email protected] with additional questions.
