SPE Opportunities

Just got an email back from SPE about student volunteering. How many of you are interested in going? It would be nice to plan a road trip down there and share the costs. "Student volunteers will be able to attend the conference for a greatly reduced conference fee of $25. Most of the volunteers will help with the lectures. Other volunteers will help with the auctions, portfolio sessions, registration, etc. Each volunteer is required to work eight hours (spread over the conference) and must attend one of the training sessions on Wednesday, March 12, 2008 from 4-6 pm or in the evening from 9-11 pm. A late, final training session is Thursday, March 13, 2008 from 8-10 am. Volunteers attending the Wednesday training will be given preference in assignments. All volunteers need to pre-register for the conference and be 2008 members of SPE. The postmark deadline for volunteer registration is February 14, 2008. Volunteers and Scholarship recipients are invited to participate in the popular Student Seminar on Thursday morning, March 13, 2008 from 9 am to noon with Susan kae Grant, Hannah Frieser and Dennis Keeley. This special seminar is only open to student volunteers and scholarship recipients. More information about the Student Seminar will be available on the SPE website: The student volunteer registration form has not yet been posted on the website, but should be ready shortly. Please check back soon: Please feel free to contact me should you have any further questions.

i am definitely going again this year and am considering volunteering again. you get to meet lots of other student photographers and it is a great way to get feedback on your work outside of the normal portfolio reviews. i would definitely recommend it.
