SAA Career Center Call for SAA Career Center Greeters

The SAA Career Center was established to offer career advice, counseling, and a chance to mock interview as a way for members to advance their careers and volunteers to give back to the community.  Find out more about the Career Center here:


We need your help to continue to make the Career Center a success! Last year, our post-SAA survey results indicated that some people weren't sure how to navigate the Career Center.  So this year, we are recruiting Career Center Greeters!


What Does It Take to Be a Greeter?

We are just looking for an hour of your time to do the following:

  • Welcome people who walk into the Career Center;
  • Tell them about the services offered, and how to sign up;
  • Answer questions (or direct them accordingly) that are posed by visitors;
  • Smile, and maybe make a new friend or two!

We will send out a Greeter orientation email to all volunteers prior to the start of SAA.


During this year's SAA Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, the Career Center is open as follows:

  • Wednesday, August 15: 8:00 am – 4:30 pm
  • Thursday, August 16: 8:00 am – 10:00 am; 10:30 am - 4:30 pm
  • Friday, August 17: 8:00 am – 4:30 pm



If you are interested in being a Career Center Greeter, please sign up using this Google spreadsheet.


Sign up is on a first come, first serve basis; the deadline to sign up is August 1, 2018.

You will receive a confirmation of your time slot with the orientation email prior to the Annual Meeting.


If you have any questions, please contact me at or 410-245-1607.  Your participation is so very much appreciated!

Thank you,

Laura Starr
