Description of Duties:

Duties will allow students to be involved in IVECCS while attending the lectures and Limited Enrollment Sessions (LES) they are interested in. Generally, student volunteers are utilized in one of three ways:

a) Assistant Moderators / Room Monitors:

Assistant Moderator - For Core Lectures, assist the Moderator who has the responsibility for running the program in that room. Student volunteers will check badges of registrants to verify he/she is eligible to enter, assist with the lights, the sound, room temperature, the need for more chairs, etc. Students will assist the Moderator (i.e. while Moderator introduces the speaker, the student adjust the lights and monitors the entry of attendees.)

Room Monitor - For Limited Enrollment Sessions (LES’s) monitor entrance into the courses (Labs, Workshops, and Discussion Sessions), take tickets for these additional fee courses; assist the instructor(s) if necessary with set-up, other miscellaneous tasks. Be at the session 30 minutes prior to start and remain 30 minutes after it begins.

b)   Registration Support:

Performing miscellaneous support duties as needed as assigned by the Registration Manager.

c)  5K Fun Run

Student volunteers will assist the 5K coordinator as needed, possibly handling 5K registration pickup or help with duties during the 5K run.

Once we receive the list of students who would like to work, we will develop a schedule and send to each volunteer selected. Orientation meetings will be held at IVECCS to outline your duties and assignments. Remember, to get the free registration, you must work at least 2 half day blocks.
