Thank you for considering being a volunteer at the 2016 National Conference on Addiction Disorders!  If you are selected as a volunteer, you will be participating in the premier industry event, earning continuing education credits and networking with top industry leaders.A limited amount of volunteer positions are available for the 2016 conference.  As a volunteer, you may be asked to:

  • Staff a tour.  Tours are a popular part of the conference and always sell out fast!  You will be there to help sponsors and attendees, communicate with the site staff, and monitor tour progress.
  • Monitor a room for sessions including scanning badges, handing out and collecting evaluations, introduce speakers, and answer continuing education credit questions.
  • Staff an information and continuing education credit table near the registration area.
  • Serve as a way-finder in high traffic areas.

Volunteers will be awarded a full-conference pass in return for volunteering to work the conference. A full-conference pass includes access to the Exhibit Hall, keynote presentations, educational sessions (you must stay at your assigned room), educational materials, conference meals, and networking events.  You will be responsible for all your own travel, accommodation and incidentals.  Volunteers work full days and the entire conference (Saturday - Wednesday).  Some volunteers will be selected to work the Pre-Conference Programs and tours if you are available.  You will receive a schedule on-site as changes are frequently required last minute.

NCAD cannot reimburse you for travel, sleeping room, incidentals, non-conference meals or parking fees, or for any other expenses related to your attendance at the conference.  Only full conference passes will be provided.

Please fill out the online form before June 12, 2016.  Decisions will be sent out the following week so you will have adequate time to make your travel plans.

If you have already signed up for the conference and paid for your pass, you are not eligible for consideration as a volunteer. 

If you have any questions or if you need a form to fill out and mail, please contact Shawnna Estrella at
