This year, we are giving you the opportunity to participate in our annual meeting by applying to be a Reviewer, Session Moderator, or Onsite Volunteer. Please see the information below for a guide on beginning the application process. The volunteer application will be made available in November of 2023.
The following are responsibilities for each volunteer position; choose which is the best fit for you. After submitting your application, if you are selected to be a volunteer, you will be sent an email with further instructions.
Reviewers must be available via the internet to review assigned abstracts in their area of expertise during the rolling review period of December 2023-July 2024. Reviewers may indicate dates when they are not available to review. Reviewers will be assigned 1-15 abstracts in the category of their expertise as abstracts are submitted and will complete each review within a two-week time frame. Reviewers will be sent an email with each new assignment. If you have questions, please submit to SpeakerInfo@wmis.org.
Session Moderators will be paired to sessions according to their areas of expertise. Duties during the sessions include keeping time to ensure all speakers run on schedule, moderating questions from the audience, and assisting speakers as needed.
Onsite volunteers assist with greeting attendees, working the registration counter, answering attendee questions, and counting attendees in sessions. Onsite volunteers are utilized only a few hours at a time to allow them to attend sessions at the meeting.
