First-Time Attendee


    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: 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.
