Convention Volunteers Needed

Students and Young Professionals — Sign up to be a volunteer at ACE and benefit by earning cash and enjoying valuable interactions at the convention! Volunteers are essential to the success of the conference. As a volunteer, you might assist judges with finding and returning their scorecards, help out at the opening session, assist oral session chairs or poster presenters in their sessions, or support AAPG staff in the registration area or exhibit hall. Volunteers will receive $25 for each shift (typically 4-5 hours) to help offset the cost of attending the conference. You will have an opportunity to sign up as a volunteer when you register online; those interested will be contacted approximately one month before the conference to confirm availability and role preferences. To be eligible for the cash stipend, volunteers must be either students or recent (2019-2020) graduates.

Judges Needed!

Have you ever thought about volunteering as a technical presentation judge at ACE? Judges perform the crucial role of determining the winners of the Matson Memorial Award (for best oral presentation in an AAPG session), the Braunstein Memorial Award (for best poster presentation in an AAPG session) and the DEG, EMD, and SEPM Division Awards. Whether it’s your 50th ACE or your first, participating as a judge is a great way to get involved and, best of all, it’s easy. Just sign up during online conference registration and indicate which poster and/or oral presentations best fit your schedule and interests. All attendees, including students, YPs, Associates and Members are encouraged to sign up. Worried you’re not a subject matter expert? Don’t be! Critical listening and thoughtful evaluation are the only required skills. Plus, you can network while you learn! Still unsure about being a judge? Email Terri Duncan ( with questions. See you in Houston!
