WE NEED YOU!

The AEC is volunteer-run and we still need a little more help!  We promise we won't bite!  Here are the spots we need to fill:

  • Moderators: During sessions at the AEC, this person introduces speakers and helps keep them on track by watching the time.  We will work with you so that you moderate in sessions you're already planning to attend so that you don't miss anything!

  • Audio-Visual Committee: This person would set-up and run the presentations in the ballroom/plenary sessions.

  • International Health Committee (IHC): There are 4 ways to participate!

    1. Bring an item to donate to the silent auction, which will benefit a worthy non-profit doing meaningful international environmental public health work.  If possible, for planning purposes, please email the IHC ahead of time to let them know what you're going to bring.

    2. At the conference- Help set-up the auction on the 1st day and announce winners & collect money the 2nd day.

    3. Before the conference- Help get donations.

    4. Volunteer for the committee.
