Work Exchange Program

The Hawai‘i Conservation Alliance is pleased to announce that we will be offering our "Work Exchange Program" to interested individuals who would like to help host the conference, handle logistics, and other special projects in exchange for conference admission and a few other conference perks.

The Work Exchange Program allows individuals to work a significant number of volunteer hours in exchange for a complimentary pass (valued over $360) to attend the 20th Anniversary Hawai‘i Conservation Conference.

Program Commitment

Participants in the program agree to:

  • Completing 12-14 hours of service at the 2012 HCC.
  • Be billed for the full conference price, if they do not complete their scheduled hours.
  • Attending a mandatory orientation on July 30th, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
  • Sign in and out with the Work Exchange Coordinator for each shift (this is the participant’s responsibility in order to receive credit for hours worked, NOT the responsibility of the Work Exchange Coordinator).

  • Access to conference sessions outside of work schedule, the exhibit hall, opening reception
  • Emerging Professionals Networking Event 20th Anniversary Public Celebration & Poster Reception
