Symposium assistants deliver essential meeting materials to the technical session rooms, monitor audio-visual equipment and room lighting, track and record attendance and perform other tasks requested by the session chairs. By assisting in a minimum of four half-day sessions, students will earn a complimentary student registration, a one-year MRS student membership commencing January 1, 2018, and a stipend to help defray expenses. Positions are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
