Convention Assistant Opportunity
NASP is looking for individuals to serve as NASP Convention Workshop monitors and as convention assistants to assist with various other convention activities. Convention assistants may sign up for a maximum of one slot in each category (workshop monitor or convention assistant).
All convention assistants must be current NASP members and must register for the convention before signing up as convention assistants or workshop monitors.
Workshop monitors may participate in the workshop (and receive CPD documentation) without paying the workshop fee. Individuals serving as workshop monitors do not need to register for the workshops they monitor once they have signed up for that monitor assignment.
The time you provide as a convention assistant may count toward continuing professional development (CPD) hours, depending on your personal evaluation of the educational value of the experience.
In appreciation for a minimum of four to six hours of service, a refund of $75 will be given to student convention assistants only. After completing their convention assistant assignments, students must bring the credit card they used to register for the convention to the convention assistant booth for $75 credits or refunds. Please note that time spent as a monitor in NASP Convention Workshops does not count toward the four to six hours of service required for students to receive the $75 registration fee refund.
The online convention assistant database will open on November 1, 2011. Convention assistant spots fill quickly and on a first-come, first-served basis. Sign up as an assistant. You will receive an e-mail confirmation of your assignment. Keep your confirmation page to verify your assignment. Also, please ensure that the e-mail address you provide is valid through March 2012.
Once scheduled, all convention assistant placements are considered final. If you cannot keep your commitment, you must log back into the convention assistant database and remove yourself from the position no later than two weeks before the convention.
The convention greatly benefits from the efforts of dedicated regular and student member convention assistants. Please consider spending a few hours of your time as a convention assistant
