Sign up today to volunteer at SOAHR 2019!

SHRM-Atlanta is issuing an open call for enthusiastic, outgoing SHRM-Atlanta members to serve as ambassadors, greeters, ushers, hosts, monitors and registration assistants at this year’s conference. This team will help to make sure SOAHR 2019 goes off without a hitch and delivers a fantastic attendee experience.

Volunteers are crucial to the success of SOAHR 2019. Our goal is to ensure every attendee has a memorable experience from the time they walk through the door!

As a volunteer, you will be required to work one full day of the conference, and then you can attend the second day at your leisure. We will do our best to schedule you in the area and on the date that you request, but we cannot guarantee a specific day or assignment.

Volunteer Requirements:

  • Volunteers must be SHRM-Atlanta members in good standing at the time of the conference.
  • Volunteers are required to attend an orientation and help stuff bags on Monday, March 25, 2019 from 2-4 pm.
  • Volunteers must be available to work 6 AM – 4:30 PM on Tuesday, March 26 or Wednesday, March 27. The shift will likely not last the full day, but having availability will ensure your spot to volunteer.

SHRM-Atlanta will choose volunteers based on conference needs and volunteer availability.

Volunteer sign-up is open until February 27, 2019. 

If you are selected as a volunteer, you will receive a discounted registration!
