Volunteers are needed for the upcoming NEDRA Annual Conference in Portland, ME on April 11 & 12, 2019

The time commitment is minimal, but the results are greatly appreciated... please see below for a list of positions!

Conference Photographer:

Are you a photography enthusiast who's planning on attending the annual conference in April? Would you be willing to lend your skills to help NEDRA document this milestone event? We would love to be able to have pictures of the conference for posterity and to share with those members who will not able to join us.


Most of the pictures would be candid shots throughout the conference.  There will be a few posed shots during lunch on Thursday when the scholarships and Ann Castle Award are presented.

Registration Volunteer:

Registration volunteers are needed to assist on both Thursday and Friday mornings, providing help to check in conference attendees and distribute conference packets.


Assistance is needed from 8:00 – 9:00 AM on Thursday, April 11th and Friday, April 12th. 

Session Host:


  • Check with registration 30 minutes before the session to confirm that the speaker is present
  • Ensure that the room set up and AV requirements are as requested by the speaker
  • Notify registration desk (Administrative CAMI Staff and/or conference chairs) if and when there is a problem – room is too cold/hot, AV isn’t working or has problems, not enough chairs, etc.
  • Make the speaker feels comfortable, pass out handouts if needed, thank them at the end of the presentation
  • Offer to keep time for the speaker (e.g. 10 minute warning)

If you are interested in helping out as a Conference Photographer, Registration Volunteer, or Session Host at the 2019 NEDRA Conference, or or if you have any questions, please contact Rhiannon (Robnett) Gardell at rgardell[at]bowdoin[dot]edu.
