Get Involved with the NMC Conference!

We are looking for a team of volunteers to help with the

New Media Consortium

Summer Conference

June 12-15 at MIT

OEIT is co-hosting the NMC Summer conference this year and we need help.

Volunteers serve an 8 hour shift for 1 day of the 2.5 day event in return for free admission. The conference registration is $595 this year ($495 for MIT affiliates) so this is a great savings opportunity.

There are two tracks: Registration and Tech Support.

  • Registration involves staffing the registration desk, collecting tickets at events throughout the day, escorting tour groups to their tour destination, and other related activities.
  • Tech Support involves being part of a team that helps with last minute equipment needs such as power supplies, dongles, setting up projectors, etc. (You do not need to be an experienced tech person to be on this team. Common sense and resourcefulness are the main qualities).

Both volunteer tracks may require 1 or 2 phone meetings for coordination and briefing.

Volunteering at the conference offers the opportunity to network with people, even when one is working a shift. And, of course, attending the conference offers a chance to experience the best in new media from institutions across the country.

Please let co-host Molly Ruggles ( know if you are interested in volunteering by Friday March 16th.
