Building pathways in education takes a network of colleagues and partners who can share advice and experience, and help you find solutions. Use the information below to network before, during and after the conference. Open to all registered attendees at no additional cost.
Networking Before the Conference
Start building your professional and personal network online as soon as you register for the conference. Use the conference program to search and filter the list of conference attendees and topics being presented.
- Sessions by Topic - Coming Soon!
- Sessions by Presenters - Coming Soon!
- Use social media to get latest conference updates and connect with your colleagues and the larger education community. Tweeting about the conference? Don't forget to include the #TTUWSC14 hashtag.
- You should also use this time to meet others online to follow in the future
Volunteering at a conference not only allows you to network with others but it can help attendees in reducing fees for registration. Volunteers will be required to arrive early to sign in for their scheduled time and sign out when they have completed their duty. We will work with your schedule and can work with you even if you can only volunteer for an hour.
- Volunteer Needs
- Sign up today! - Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator for the Women’s Studies Program to sign up to volunteer: firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Women’s Studies office at (806) 742-4335.
Benefits of volunteering
- Volunteering connects you to others - One of the better-known benefits of volunteering is the impact on the community. Unpaid volunteers are often the glue that holds a community together. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. However, volunteering is a two-way street, and it can benefit you and your family as much as the cause you choose to help. Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network, and boost your social skills.
