Call for Annual Meeting Volunteers

Serve as a Joint Annual Meeting volunteer!

In exchange for 6.5 hours of service, volunteers receive a waiver of the meeting registration fee. Volunteers must be current members of either the American Musicological Society or the Society for Music Theory.

There are several volunteer opportunities available. Opportunities include, but are not limited to:

  • Face-to-face customer service (staff registration desk, information desk, Exhibit Hall, etc.)
  • Room monitor (do room counts, liaise with A/V support)

Please note that room monitor shifts will be handled differently than at previous AMS and/or SMT annual meetings. Rather than being scheduled to monitor a specific session, small groups of volunteers will be stationed outside of a cluster of session rooms and will provide support for a handful of rooms.

Please note that space is limited. We cannot guarantee all who apply will be assigned a volunteer role. The deadline to apply has been extended to 29 September 2023.

Please wait to complete your conference registration until your volunteer assignment is confirmed. If you have any questions, please contact the event organizers at
