For Volunteers

As a student-run conference, BUCLD relies on the support of student volunteers to make everything come together. This year we need volunteers to act as moderators for the question and answer periods of each presentation session. Unlike previous years, the conference is free to all students regardless of whether they volunteer. However, there are still some added benefits to volunteering, such as adding a line to your CV, getting some visibility as an emerging scholar, and potentially making  connections with some of the biggest names in language development. Additionally, volunteering with BUCLD can count towards volunteer hours requirements.

Volunteers will be responsible for attending a brief 30 minute virtual training the week before the conference and 2.5-3 hours of time over 1-2 shifts during the conference. Excitingly, since the conference is entirely virtual this year, you do not need to be local to volunteer!
