Volunteer Opportunities

The SEG International Exposition and Annual Meeting is made possible because of the many individuals who volunteer their time to play a part in SEG's purpose of advancing geophysics today and inspiring geoscientists for tomorrow.

Volunteers make the Annual Meeting worthwhile, enjoyable, and successful. It is your Society, so please consider volunteering some of your time.

There are no volunteer opportunities currently available. To be considered for future volunteering opportunities, please log in and create your volunteer profile today. 

Please note that SEG is unable to assist with travel/hotel accommodations.

Volunteering Frequently Asked Questions

What is SEG?
The Society of Exploration Geophysicists is a not-for-profit organization that promotes the science of applied geophysics and the education of geophysicists. SEG, founded in 1930, fosters the expert and ethical practice of geophysics in the exploration and development of natural resources, in characterizing the near surface, and in mitigating earth hazards. The Society, which has more than 33,000 members in 138 countries, fulfills its mission through its publications, conferences, forums, Web sites, and educational opportunities.

Where and when is the Annual Meeting being held?
From 24-29 September 2017, the SEG will be in Houston, Texas USA at the George R. Brown Convention Center.  Volunteer opportunities are available Monday-Thursday, 25-28 September 2017.

What will I be doing as a volunteer?  Is there a minimum amount of hours I have to volunteer?
Currently, there is only one volunteer opportunity available at the Annual Meeting this year:  Technical Program Session Monitors.  Volunteer time slots for the Technical Program are five hours each.

What are the duties for Technical Program Session Monitors?
Monitors will observe their assigned session room and report any problems, requests, etc. that may arise during the course of the session. Monitors will also be in charge of taking an attendance count during each presentation in the session.

What are the benefits of volunteering?
Volunteers for the positions of Technical Program Monitor will be given a half day pass to the exhibit hall and the technical session (for that same day) for each time slot worked. 

What happens if my availability changes after I sign up and I am unable to fulfill my obligations? Please notify the volunteer coordinator immediately at amvolunteers@seg.org. We do ask that you find a replacement if you notify us within two weeks of the meeting.
