ICSEW Needs Conference Volunteers

By Marie Splaine, Department of Commerce
This year’s ICSEW Professional Development  conference, scheduled for August 27 at South Puget Sound Community College, SPSCC,  in Olympia, has 19 engaging and powerful presenters. And we’re anticipating more than 500 attendees. But we can’t do it all alone. We need volunteers.
Below are three ways YOU can volunteer at ICSEW’s biggest event of the year!

Session Volunteers

Session volunteers serve as room monitors. They introduce the session presenter and ensure the sessions get out on time. Volunteers are still required to register and pay the standard admission fee. However, sessions are first come, first serve and fill up fast. That means volunteers get guaranteed entry into the sessions they volunteer for. Sessions range from an hour and 15 minutes to an hour and 45 minutes.


We’re also looking for a handful of people who can help direct attendees around the campus throughout the day. If you’re an SPSCC staff or student or someone else who is familiar with the campus, this is the volunteer opportunity for you!

Day Before Setup

Please join us Monday, August 26 from 5-8 p.m. in the Student Union Building at SPSCC to help set up and prep for the conference! You’ll help ensure all equipment and supplies for the rooms are there, make sure all signage is where it needs to be and get a lay of the land before the big day. (Note: If you’re volunteering to be a navigator, this is a good opportunity for you to check out the venue before guests arrive)

How to volunteer:  

Contact Marie Splaine, marie.splaine@commerce.wa.gov or (360) 338-5992 if you are interested in volunteering or have questions. All volunteers will receive a brief orientation and instructions before their shift.
