Note for registration purposes: When you register for Convention, please click the pay later option when you checkout, and we will put your registration in to our “volunteer” receiving free registration bucket. 

This convention attracts educators and advocates from all over the country who come and learn best practices to create safe and secure learning environments so Native students can thrive in the classroom and beyond.

We NEED the help of volunteers like you to make it happen! Here are just a few of the jobs we are needing help with:

Pre-Registration & On-site Registration (Tuesday, Oct 8th – Saturday, Oct 12th):

  • Handout Convention Packets and bags to pre-registered attendees
  • Assist on-site registrants with form completion and payment

Trade Show Registration (Tuesday, Oct 8th – Saturday, Oct 12th):

  • Provide pre-registered trade show attendees with their registration packets.
  • Direct any on-site trade show registrants to Trade Show Coordinator.

Bag Stuffing (Monday, Oct 7th):

  • Set up convention bags and inserts in assembly line style
  • Fill bags with items and store in boxes

NIEA is looking to recruit 10 volunteers to work five (5) hours on Monday, Oct 7th to assist with convention bag stuffing. These hours will go toward your total 8 hours of volunteer service.

Volunteers working eight (8) or more hours between Monday, Oct 7th through Saturday, Oct 12th will have the opportunity to receive free registration for the convention.

  1. Please click here to register to volunteer. We ask that you include what days you are available and if possible work more than one day to gain the total 8 hours of volunteer service.
