Attention all student members of ASPRS!
Plan now to attend the ASPRS/MAPPS 2009 Fall Specialty Conference and pay NO registration fee.
If you are a student at an accredited college/university and would like to attend the ASPRS/MAPPS Fall Specialty Conference without paying the required conference registration fee, consider serving as a Student Volunteer.
We are looking for Student Volunteers to help from Sunday, November 15 – Thursday, November 19, 2009. In exchange for the opportunity to attend the General and Technical Sessions, visit the Exhibit Hall, and enjoy the Exhibitor's Reception, Student Volunteers will be required to work at least 10 hours during the conference.
This is a great opportunity to learn more about the geospatial field, meet some of the top names in the industry, and explore job possibilities; you are encouraged to bring your resumé as a special area will be set aside for resumé postings. In addition, the ASPRS Student Advisory Council will host events targeting the special interests of students and young professionals including: Speed Networking, two special sessions, and information social gatherings in the evenings.
