The 2018 conference co-chairs would like to thank you for volunteering your time and knowledge. Please keep the following in mind when filling out this form. In the effort to provide a variety of workshops, we would like to limit ticketed events. For those who need to determine if they need to ticket their event, use this as your guide: 1) hands on, 2) unique materials provided for attendees (outside of traditional handouts), and/or 3) those that require a fee. To encourage paperless green methods, we encourage presenters to make support materials available after the conference on the MAEA website. We truly do appreciate your desire to help make the 2018 conference great. Please have information COPY READY. Type the information as it would appear in the conference publications.

With this spirit of volunteerism in mind, I am aware that if my proposal is accepted, I will still be required to register for the conference and pay the general registration fee in order to attend other conference events. I also understand that my presentation is not to be a for-profit venture without the approval of the conference chairmen. (This does not apply to vendors who have secured exhibition space.)
