This year, the SOCAP conference is seeking between 80 and 100 volunteers to complete duties before, during, and shortly after SOCAP16. In past years, individuals who volunteer have been excellent students, highly motivated entrepreneurs, non-profit representatives, or those in career transition. Volunteers are vital to our success, fill integral roles throughout the conference, and help make SOCAP a memorable experience for all.
