Volunteer

AIR relies on the support of our members to make the Forum a success. While your assistance will support Forum activities, volunteers also benefit from the opportunity to develop relationships with other members.

Facilitate a Session

Facilitating a session is a great way to get involved without missing any of the educational opportunities offereed at the Forum. Use the “Facilitate this Session” icon in the My Schedule tool to sign up. Onsite sign up will be available at the Registration Desk.

Facilitator Roles and Responsibilities

The facilitator role is designed to ensure each session runs smoothly. A packet of facilitator materials is located on the podium in the session room. If the presenter is not in the room five minutes prior to the start of the session, please report to AIR staff at the Registration Desk as soon as possible.

Duties include:

  • Confirm the time and session title on the packet match the session you are facilitating.
  • Ensure the presentation begins and ends on time.
  • Record the number of attendees in attendance on the Session Count Sheet.
  • Distribute and collect Concurrent Session Evaluation Forms.
