Important Information

Thank you for your interest in being a volunteer. Volunteers play an important role in helping the conference run smoothly. Volunteer energy and time will play an important role in helping create an amazing conference for all involved. This is also a great opportunity to soak up all the amazing knowledge available in the sessions and work with museum professionals from across the state.

The conference program will give you additional information about the sessions and other events at the conference.

If you have any questions please contact Ruth White, UMA Executive Assistant.


Compensation

We have space for ten volunteers this year. Each volunteer must commit to work a minimum of 8 hours (at least 1 Information shift and only 1 Event shift with the remainder being Session shifts). In exchange for their service volunteers will be given a complimentary conference registration. Every effort is made to accommodate the shift requests of each volunteer; however, the final schedule is at the discretion of conference staff. Sign up to be a volunteer here.
