CASE runs on volunteer power. Submit your information to volunteer.
Each year, more than 350 volunteer leaders serve on CASE boards and advisory groups. Another 3,200 advancement professionals volunteer their time as speakers, authors, conference planners, judges and more.
CASE volunteers are at all stages in their advancement careers, from newcomers to senior-level practitioners. They work across the advancement disciplines—alumni relations, communications, development and marketing—and around the world. They may serve a multi-year term on the CASE Board of Trustees or host a single session at a conference.
Whatever role they play, volunteers are at the heart of everything CASE does. They drive CASE's direction, develop and share knowledge about the profession and deliver services to their peers.
Why should you volunteer for CASE? CASE volunteers say they give of their time and talents in order to:
- Contribute to the development of the profession
- Grow their networks
- Develop professionally
- Get new ideas and perspectives from outside their own campuses
- Build their careers
- Mentor the next generation of advancement professionals
- Give back to their profession
You can volunteer—or nominate a colleague to volunteer—for a number of activities and roles that support CASE and the advancement profession. Find out more about various opportunities and requirements for the following volunteer roles:
- Volunteer leader (serving on a CASE governing or advisory board)
- Conference speaker (in-person and online)

District V Conference Volunteer Opportunities
Stepping forward to lend a hand at the CASE V Conference is a great way to get to know your colleagues from other institutions. For those wanting to become more involved in CASE V, it’s also a great first step to help you learn more about the work our volunteers do. Commitment and responsibilities are small, and the rewards are great.
Volunteers greet attendees and distribute conference packets, allowing you to get acquainted with your colleagues quickly. Shifts last for two hours.
The Conference Concierge is staffed throughout the entire conference. The Conference Concierge provides the latest information on sessions, sign-up sheets for networking dinners, assists with navigating around the hotel, provides general conference information, lost-and-found, and a conference message board. Volunteers help our colleagues continue to stay connected with attending the conference. Shifts last two hours, and coordinate with one session.
Program Track Action Group
We'll be recruiting for the 2015 Conference, and one way to get involved is to assist the Program Track Chairs in building the session schedule for each track. Most of the work is done by email and conference call, and this provides a great opportunity to become more familiar with the work of the CASE V Conference Planning Committee. You also help to shape the direction of the conference. Work will begin in February.
