Work Off Your Registration Fee

Are you an IAEM member and want to work off all or part of your conference registration fee?  If you answered yes, then working as Conference Staff at theIAEM 69th Annual Conference in Grand Rapids, MI is for you! This is a great opportunity to get involved, support the overall mission of the conference, all while networking with other emergency management professionals.


Conference staff will receive a $25 registration fee discount for each hour worked. You will not be compensated for any hours worked which exceed the value of the registration fee, nor will you be compensated if you did not work your scheduled shifts.

Registering for the IAEM Conference

If you are interested in being conference staff to work off your registration, when you register for the conference indicate that you will “pay by check.” You do not need to pay before the conference. After the conference, IAEM will send an invoice to anyone who still owes (for conference registration) after the discount is applied.
