government management, state or county agency, non-profit organization).

occupation options listed on the registration page. Otherwise, you will
not be included in the student/mentor section of the lunch.

- We are still looking for a new student representative. If interested,
please consider volunteering. Contact either Deahn DonnerWright or Martin Simard at the below
addresses as soon as possible.
- We will be organizing a buddy system as we get closer to the annual conference.
The annual conference can be difficult for our international students, or students
attending the conference by themselves. The buddy system helps match these
students with volunteers that are willing to help make the conference a great
experience for them.
