Student Volunteers

Having student volunteers is a win-win for students and for STC. Student volunteers can attend the Summit (either onsite or virtually), learn aspects of technical communication beyond their college classrooms, and build their professional networks. STC receives support during the Summit for registration and sessions from volunteers, which improves the experience for both speakers and attendees.

Calling Student Volunteers!

Student volunteers can attend the Summit, learn aspects of technical communication beyond their college classrooms, and build their professional networks.

STC has the following virtual student volunteer positions for the 2021 Summit: virtual presentation room producers (live and simulive), live Q&A facilitators, discussion area moderators, networking moderators, and Expo Hall assistants. All positions are critical to ensure a well-run virtual conference and student volunteers are expected to fulfill their volunteer duties if selected to attend the Summit. All student volunteers will have time to attend sessions during the Summit. Students should identify at least two different positions on the application where they want to volunteer.

Student volunteers receive complimentary registrations to the Summit. This does not include registration to the leadership program, preconference workshops, or certificate programs.

Students must complete a Student Volunteer Application Form below to be considered for a position. The application form and the position descriptions indicate the number of people needed in each area. Students submitting the form will be sent to the Student Volunteer Coordinator, Carolyn Kelly Klinger (, and STC’s Director of Meetings and Conventions, Elaine Gilliam (  All applications must be submitted by 15 March 2021.
