The professional society for life cycle assessment

Student Volunteer Opportunity

At the LCA conferences, students are invited to volunteer (primarily based on a first-come, first-served basis) to help at the conference. In return, conference fees are waived.

The work that needs to be done include:

1) Staffing the registration desk

2) Staffing the sessions

3) Loading and unloading presentations on the presentation computers


The student volunteers must attend a one-hour meeting the night before the conference starts (generally, on Monday afternoon/evening). At this meeting the students self-organize to assure that the work is covered, and everyone can arrange to attend the sessions most important to him or her.

Calls for volunteers are sent through the ACLCA Announcements list serve. To add yourself to the list visit the list signup page.
