CSA Conference Volunteer Opportunities

2018 CSA Conference

The 5th Annual Building Knowledge and Empowering Networks to Benefit Seniors CSA Conference will be in Dallas, Texas at the Hyatt Regency at Reunion August 24-26, 2018.

In order to ensure the CSA Conference is valuable and relevant for CSAs and aging industry professionals, SCSA relies on the input and involvement of CSAs and professionals to guide the content and direction of the Building Knowledge and Empowering Networks to Benefit Seniors conference. If you are interested in serving on one of the volunteer organizing committees for the 2018 CSA Conference in Dallas, please review the committee descriptions below, and fill out the online form in order to apply: 2018 Conference Volunteers by January 15, 2018.

  • Program Committee: An interesting and relevant program is the greatest attraction to conference attendees. In addition to the exceptional business-to-business networking opportunities, CSAs want to learn. The primary purpose of this committee is to design the conference program, and review proposal submissions for keynote, plenary and break-out sessions. Committee members will select program presenters, and determine the types of sessions, for example, panel presentations, lecture, quick-learning (lightning) sessions, invited sessions, and edit speaker bios. Committee members will work directly with SCSA staff to coordinate the program content and select speakers.
  • Sponsorship Committee: Part of the conference is supported by sponsorships from CSAs related industry partners. The primary purpose of this committee is to facilitate outreach to potential industry partners. Committee members will be responsible for sharing the Conference Prospectus with potential sponsor organizations, helping to make connections between decision makers and SCSA staff, and for highlighting the benefits of sponsorship to organizations. SCSA staff will coordinate all logistics and negotiations independently.
  • Marketing Committee: Promotion is essential to conference success. The marketing committee is primarily responsible for sharing approved marketing materials with their own networks and contacts and assisting SCSA with promotion of the conference to increase attendance through use of social media by liking, sharing, and retweeting content and by participating in word of mouth advertising. The Marketing Committee is also tasked with leading social media engagement during the conference by using provided hashtags to tweet, post, and share content across Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook.
  • Service to Seniors Committee: In keeping with the tradition of honoring outstanding CSAs, this committee will solicit nominations for the Service to Seniors Award and make the final selection for the 2018 award winner. The Chair of the Committee will present the award to the winner onsite, with support from SCSA regarding speaking scripts and presentation slides. Committee members will work with SCSA staff in the development of the nominations criteria, organization of submissions, and selection process.
  • Ambassador Committee: Welcoming conference attendees, in particular first timers, sets the stage for a successful event. Ambassadors will be on the ground greeting conference attendees, assisting speakers, introducing speakers, and helping participants navigate the conference. SCSA staff will assist ambassadors by assigning them to select individuals and by providing on-site support.
  • Logistics Committee: Work by committee members will be primarily on-site, ensuring that speakers are set up with AV and ready to present. Committee members will also introduce speakers and help with registration during peak times. SCSA staff will support the logistics committee by providing onsite training for AV set up, providing session packets to introduce speakers, disseminate and collect session evaluations, and positioning session signs.
