PROPOSAL REVIEWERS

We rely on the help of proposal reviewers to decide which concurrent session and poster presentation proposals to accept. New, mid, and senior-level transfer professionals from all functional areas, as well as faculty, administrators, and researchers, are welcome to volunteer. Prior participation as a NISTS conference presenter is preferred but not required.

Please become a reviewer if you have expertise in any of this year's session themes:

  • Curricular Alignment or Degree Pathways

  • Diversity and Inclusion

  • Matriculation Trends and Issues

  • Partnerships and Collaboration

  • Special Populations

  • Transition Programs and Services

Things to Consider

  • Reviewers will be assigned up to 5 proposals that match their area of interest and/or expertise. Please review the Proposal Review Guidelines and the Proposal Evaluation Rubric to see what type of feedback we're looking for. 
     

  • It will take 15-30 minutes to evaluate each proposal. You can do them all in one sitting or spread them throughout the three-week review window.
     

  • The review process is totally online. We'll email detailed instructions for logging in and submitting your reviews on or around September 8th.

ON-SITE SUPPORT

Volunteers are essential and hold critically important roles in helping things run smoothly and providing a great conference experience. As a virtual volunteer, you'll have the chance to network with NISTS staff members and colleagues from across the nation, all while gaining a unique behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to run a national conference.

 

There are a variety of opportunities to lend your skills and time. Our volunteer teams will probably include the following, though other opportunities might also become available.
 

  • Virtual Session Moderators

  • Networking Break Hosts

  • Virtual Exhibit Hall Helpers

  • Social Media Promoters

Interested in Volunteering?

 

There are two ways to let us know:  Check the volunteer box when you register for the conference, or watch for the “Be a Volunteer” emails in December and January. We’ll contact you a little closer to the event to discuss your preferences and opportunities.  

 

We're so grateful for your support and look forward to seeing you at the conference! Should you have any questions, please feel free to email tonya.brooks@ung.edu.
