Volunteer Information


The AAFS 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting will take place February 18-23 in Baltimore, MD. We need volunteers to accomplish an array of administrative and gate-keeping tasks throughout the week of the meeting. Volunteers who are not members of the Academy may receive complimentary registration to attend all non-ticketed sessions of the meeting with a minimum of eight (8) hours of completed volunteer service at the meeting. This does not include sessions requiring pre-registration or fees other than the basic meeting registration fee. If you plan to attend any of the Special Functions (e.g., workshops, breakfasts, luncheons, special sessions, etc.), please login to your AAFS Account Portal, click on “Create/Edit My Annual Meeting Registration” to add functions and apply payment with a debit or credit card.

Although most AAFS membership categories do not receive complimentary registration for volunteering, the Academy needs its members to volunteer. Your service to the Academy is instrumental in making the event a success. Persons accompanying registered attendees are also welcome to volunteer if they wish.

*Volunteer applications must be received no later than January 4th, and are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Incomplete forms are not accepted.
