National Aquatic Therapy Conference Volunteer Duties
We have two different types of positions available: Course Monitor (CM) and Equipment/Speaker Assistant (ESA).

Typical tasks of the Course Monitor and the Equipment/Speaker Assistant volunteers include contacting ATRI staff in the Registration Office if audio-visual equipment is not operating correctly, monitoring attendance in courses, and some assistance in moving pool equipment. You are often able to fully participate in the course in which you are assigned.

We prepare you for your job by sending you information in advance, and by holding a meeting for all volunteers the evening before courses start.

Volunteer Positions
Please see below for a link to the Volunteer Positions. Select courses on the Volunteer Registration Form. Use number 1 to signify your first choice, 2 for your second choice, and 3 for third. You will be contacted by email to notify you if your choices are available. Volunteer positions are filled on a first come basis with preference given to those who select Complete Conference prior to the early bird deadline of the conference you wish to attend. There are limited positions and many potential volunteers.

Please complete the form below and return it to the ATRI office with your Volunteer Application (see below). We will notify you if you have been chosen.
