Call for Applications: IAFA On-Site Technical Officer

The IAFA requests applications for individuals interested in becoming our On-Site Technical Officer. The person who occupies this position is responsible for all technology use for and at ICFA. This includes purchasing audio visual equipment, setting up and tearing down projectors/screens in the break out rooms, liaising with the Book Room coordinator for A/V storage, and liaising with hotel personnel for events that require equipment we don’t own. The duties usually run from Tuesday afternoon through Sunday morning and compensation is provided for the extra hotel nights needed. The Tech Officer also manages a team of volunteers who provide assistance for presenters who need help with the equipment throughout the conference. Although experience with tech is a plus, most of the necessary knowledge can be learned quickly. While occasionally the Tech Officer may miss a session or two to perform required duties, the Tech Officer generally can enjoy the majority of the conference as a regular attendee. The Tech Officer is appointed by the President, after formal discussion and majority vote of the other elected officers. The position is not subject to term limits, but appointments will be reviewed annually.

To apply, please send a letter of application explaining why you are interested in volunteering for this position, describing your familiarity with the IAFA and the ICFA, and containing information about whatever technological knowledge and experience you possess that you feel may be useful, along with a current CV to IAFA President Dale Knickerbocker at by Feb. 7.
