The NAPABA Annual Convention, which takes place in a different host city each year, is an annual meeting in which hundreds of Asian Pacific American attorneys, judges, law professors, and law students converge. The 2013 Convention will take place on November 7-10. To celebrate the Convention's 25th anniversary, for the first time in the Convention’s history it will be held in Kansas City, Missouri. We expect to attract over 1500 APA attorneys (from private practice, corporations, government, and public interest), including general counsel of Fortune 1000 companies, federal and state judges, and law professors from across the country.

• LAW STUDENT VOLUNTEERS:
We are accepting applications for law students to volunteer at the 2013 NAPABA Convention. The deadline to apply is Friday, September 20, 2013. Priority may be given to those who apply early. Please note that filling out the application form below does NOT guarantee a spot on the volunteer team.
Volunteers will assist with registration, set-up, break-out panels, checking in attendees for CLE credit, receptions, VIPs and hosting the Saturday evening gala dinner, among other activities.
• WHAT IS THE TIME COMMITMENT TO VOLUNTEER AT THE CONVENTION?
Volunteers will work at least eight hours (one eight-hour shift or two four-hour shifts) over the Convention weekend in addition to attending a brief volunteer orientation prior to the Convention weekend. We will need volunteers at various times during the entire weekend of the Convention (Thursday, November 7 through Sunday, November 10). For those of you who are or will be in the Kansas City area immediately prior to the official start of the Convention, we may also need volunteer assistance on November 5-6.
• WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF VOLUNTEERING?
Volunteering will grant you complimentary general admission registration to attend the Convention and provide you the opportunity to work closely with practicing attorneys and other law students from the Kansas City area and across the country. You can polish your networking skills, make new friends, expand your contacts, and informally seek valuable mentoring and career advice.
Confirmed volunteers will be given a promotion code to input into the online Convention registration form to waive the registration fee. In order to receive the registration waiver code, volunteers must first provide credit card information to the Volunteer Committee as volunteers who do not serve at least eight volunteer hours at the Convention will be charged the registration fee (at the $150 discounted member rate for law students).
• HOW TO VOLUNTEER
Complete the volunteer application form by Friday, September 20, 2013. Selections of volunteers will be made by the Volunteers Committee Co-Chairs and formally confirmed by email to each volunteer as soon as possible after the September 20th deadline.
