Call for Volunteers – Hospitality Space for SCP at APA16

Students, we need your help, and have a great opportunity get involved at Convention! Each year during APA, Division 17 hosts a Hospitality Suite where business meetings, social events, and informal discussions are conducted. Students play a vital role in the operation of the APA2014_160ba(10)Hospitality Suite, serving in rotating volunteer shifts at the information table. Applications are now invited for student members of Division 17 to serve as volunteers for the Society of Counseling Psychology Hospitality Space at the 2016 American Psychological Association Annual Convention in Denver, Colorado. For their time, participants will receive an invitation to the SCP President’s Reception, as well as one free book (details to follow). Please find the descriptions of volunteer duties below. If interested, please sign up through the link below by May 15th, 2016. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at


Applicants must be members of the Student Affiliates of Seventeen (SAS) and be considered in good standing in their doctoral program. If you are not a member, but would like to be a volunteer, please submit an email of interest, and indicate you have contacted Division 17 about SAS membership.

Volunteer Duties

The primary duties of the volunteers are to greet attendees, oversee the information tables, and direct attendees to the appropriate rooms for their events. Volunteers will be present to help manage the flow of people between sessions and to assist professional administrators in managing any challenges with the Hospitality Space.


Volunteers will be needed to fill slots from 8am to 5pm on August 4-6, and from 8am to 12pm on Sunday, August 7thBeing present during your volunteer time is vital to the functioning of the Hospitality Space. Once the volunteers are selected, you will have the opportunity to advise us of times when you are certain you will NOT be available. We will then create a volunteer schedule and distribute this for confirmation regarding your ability to be present during your assigned times. While some changes can be made later, we hope these will be minimal.

Volunteer Orientation Meetings

Orientation meetings will be held on the mornings of August 4th and August 5th to prepare volunteers. Please be aware you will be asked to attend one of these sessions prior to your assigned time. We look forward to seeing you there!
