We’re looking for volunteers for the 2024 WA GIS Conference! The Washington GIS Conference is a labor of love and hard work. More hands make it more fun for everyone.  

Do you want to work behind the scenes while you learn the lay of the land? We've got those kinds of jobs. Want to stand out and be seen?  We've got those kinds of jobs too! Whether you're an introvert or an extrovert, we would love your help and your dedication to the profession. Step up your participation and join us in June for the 2024 WA GIS conference!

The Conference needs a variety of volunteers types, including:

  • Moderating Speaker Sessions

  • Day-Of Logistics (Registration Desk, Session Prep, Set-up, Clean-up)

  • Resumé Support and Mentoring Opportunities

If you’re interested in being a volunteer, please complete the volunteer interest form below.

Volunteer Benefits

  • On site volunteers that provide a minimum of ½ day of support during the conference event will be allowed to sit in on conference sessions for the day that they have volunteered. Additionally, on site volunteers that provide a minimum of ½ day of support will receive a year long membership to WAGISA (a $25 value) and additional GISP points. No food or conference registration will be provided. No discount applies to onsite volunteers that are already registered to attend the conference.

  • Volunteers earn ‘Professional Contribution Points’ valid toward their GIS Certification (GISP) via the GIS Certification Institute.1 

Other benefits include networking opportunities, comradeship, and professional development.

If you have additional questions, contact our volunteer coordinating team at to discuss ways in which you can participate.

Volunteer Form


The Washington GIS Conference is accepting submissions for 30-, 60-, and 90-minute presentations from individuals and groups. 

User presentations are what make the Washington GIS Conference great and unique every year.  We encourage you to share what you've been working on, what you've learned, what worked and what didn't, and your success stories!  We think you'll find the audience attentive and appreciative. 

All speakers will receive a discounted registration. For more information or to submit an abstract, visit our Presentations page.

By the way, did you know that presenting at a conference is worth GISP points?  And supervisors are more likely to approve your attendance at the conference when you mention that you'll also be representing your agency in a great way at a professional meeting! 


This year’s poster presentation showcase will provide the opportunity to share and exhibit your creative talents, inspire your peers, and potentially earn some cash in the process!
