Volunteers are an integral part of the annual conference as they provide various services to help attendees get the most out of the conference experience. The primary responsibility of the conference volunteer team is scanning attendee badges for CE credits, however your contributions could also include: welcoming attendees, moderating workshops, and directing attendees to appropriate conference locations. The conference organizing committee is looking for volunteers who can embody a welcoming and friendly disposition so that attendees can feel a personal connection to AASECT.

AASECT Contemporary Sexuality Outreach Steering Committee Updates As I began my role as the Chair of AASECT’s Outreach Steering Committee this year, I had the honor of stepping into a space left rich with excitement by the former Chair, and current Conference Committee Co-Chair, Jayleen Galarza. In the role of Chair, I have the pleasure of supporting AASECT’s robust mentorship efforts, international outreach, and the dynamic work of the newly formed Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) committee.
