Outreach Volunteers

Volunteers will help to promote the event through various social media outlets, newspapers, fliers and other web and print materials as well as visiting relevent events such as graduate and local openings, screenings and organizations to help spread the word about NEGMS submissions and events.  


Day Of Volunteer

The purpose of this role is to facilitate and designate all of the volunteers to differing positions the day of the symposium. Their goal is to make sure that the operational aspects of the symposium run smoothly, this can include making sure panelists are ready and in place, timekeeping, and preparing technical operations including mics and DVDs. In preparation they will contact volunteers and participants, and will make a schedule to accommodate the personnel needs for the event.



*All committee members will meet once or twice a month as a group leading up to the event and will require differing amounts of time. Working as a committee member will also give you an advantage to plan and organize the following year's theme and event! Please feel free to ask us any questions!
