Conference Volunteers


Alumni are key to the success of all YMCA MYIG conferences. Alumni advise committees, assist in conference affairs, and are present in every facet of programming from the legislature to the National Issues Forum. Alumni also help develop new programming as well as fine-tune existing programs. Volunteering is not only fun, but develops professional skills in organization, public relations, networking, leadership, and team work.
