Dear NAN Student Member:
We invite you to apply to be a Student Volunteer at this year’s National Academy of Neuropsychology Conference in Boston, MA. The 2017 conference will be held at the Westin Boston Waterfront from Wednesday, October 25 - Saturday, October 28. Students will be assigned to help with conference registration, workshop monitoring, CE scanning and various other activities beginning on the afternoon of Tuesday, October 24.
To be a Student Volunteer, you must be an active Student Member of NAN with current dues status at time of application (2017 dues paid). Student Member status is reserved for pre-doctoral level or graduate level full-time students (i.e., Post-Doctoral Residents are not eligible). Membership applications can be obtained from the NAN main office (303-691-3694, ext. 300) or via download from the NAN website. Membership applicants are eligible for student volunteer positions.
Volunteer applications will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
If you are selected as a Student Volunteer, you will receive the following benefits in exchange for 12 to 14 hours of volunteer time:
- Free Conference registration
- Free hotel accommodations for 3 - 4 nights based on your volunteer schedule. (Rooms will be shared with other Student Volunteers).
Please carefully consider whether you are willing to commit to the required number of hours, and ensure that you are able to take that time off from school/work before applying. Failure to fulfill your obligation will result in you being charged for the hotel room and conference registration.
Please do not assume by sending in the application that you are automatically a Student Volunteer. Students who are accepted as volunteers will be notified in June 2017. Schedules will follow at a later date.
We encourage you to spread the word about the benefits of NAN student membership, particularly the Student Volunteer opportunity, to other neuropsychology students in your graduate program who may not be familiar with the organization and its activities.

NAN reserves the right to accept or decline student volunteers as may be necessary for any reason bearing on the best interests of the conference, regardless of when your application is received. NAN reserves the right to refuse or restrict volunteer opportunities for any reason.
