WATERCON 2014 - Springfield, IL
March 17th - 20th, 2014
Crowne Plaza Hotel and Conference Center
Volunteers at WATERCON are what make it the best conference in the Midwest. Volunteers help to maintain the cost for attendees and exhibitors. When you volunteer, you meet people that you would not have otherwise met. If you are already attending WATERCON, please consider taking a portion of your day or evening to volunteer. You'll be glad you did!
Its easy to volunteer. Just fill out the form below, and we will contact you and get you in touch with the person in charge of the event in which you'd like to help.
Thank you and enjoy WATERCON.
