Program Assistants are Student Associates who work 10–12 hours during Congress, helping with seminars, receptions and luncheons, checking name badges, introducing session faculty and providing assistance to other Congress attendees. Program Assistants must attend one orientation session on either Sunday, March 22 or Monday, March 23.
Any ACHE Student Associate can apply to be a Program Assistant. Learn how to become a Student Associate.
This is a great opportunity for Student Associates interested in attending Congress to meet other Student Associates, network with healthcare executives, and receive all the benefits associated with a basic Congress student registration: educational sessions, networking with healthcare professionals and peers and access to career development services such as Career Counseling Service, Resume Review/Critique Service and a Job Interviewing Skills session. Program Assistants may take advantage of these benefits during the time they are not fulfilling their assigned Program Assistant duties.
Program Assistants are required to attend one orientation session and commit to 10–12 hours of work at Congress. The specific work schedules are determined later in the process.
