A little bit of labor can go a long way for students interested in attending the Natural Hazards Center Research and Applications Workshop for next to nothing. We're now accepting applications for student volunteers to assist with our annual Workshop, to be held July 19-22 in Broomfield, Colorado. The benefits of volunteering include free workshop registration and meals—a $345 value—and the opportunity to network with some of most respected professionals in the field. Lodging and transportation are the responsibility of attendees.

Not just anyone will qualify to add this esteemed service position to their CV, though. Applicants must commit to being available onsite beginning with Workshop setup on July 19 until event breakdown on July 22. Volunteer duties also include providing technical assistance, timekeeping, administrative help and other tasks as needed. Every effort will be made to facilitate student interests in session attendance and networking, however, volunteer activities must take priority. Preference will be given to candidates with a strong work ethic and a demonstrated sense of professionalism.

If this sounds like you, we encourage you to complete our online form before March 9. Volunteer assignments will be made by April 3.
