May 16 - 20, 2016
43rd Annual National Head Start Conference and Expo
"The Next Generation of Opportunity"

Volunteering at the National Conference

The National Head Start Association is looking for volunteers for our upcoming 2016 Head Start Conference and Expo — the largest national event devoted to the Head Start and Early Head Start community. From May 16 - 20, 2016, more than 4,000 executive directors, directors, administrators, managers, teachers, policy council members, and parents from every state and territory will gather in Nashville, Tennessee.

To support the conference, NHSA looks for volunteers to assist with pre-conference preparation, session monitoring, logistics support, and other conference-related tasks.  In return for volunteering for at least two days, volunteers receive a complimentary conference registration, giving them access to educational workshops on a wide range of topics as well as other non-ticketed events and the exhibit show.  Refunds and discounts on registration fees will not be given to anyone seeking to volunteer that already has an existing conference registration as an attendee.

To volunteer at the conference, please fill out the application form below. After your application is accepted, we will contact you within two weeks of your submission.

Should you have any questions, please email or call (703) 260-7575.

We look forward to working with you and truly appreciate your interest in supporting the Head Start community and its mission.
