EAST’s goal is to offer attendees inspiring educational sessions that will enhance their conference experience. We are looking for passionate speakers who encourage virtual engagement and provide takeaways or actionable steps for attendees. Sessions will be approximately 30-45 minutes long and may be pre-recorded or presented live.


Empower as a Volunteer Judge

For many of our EAST programs, their presentations for Showcase are the most anticipated part of EAST Conference. Students from over 260 schools prepare for months to create a video presentation that best portrays their year in EAST. This is where we need your help. As a volunteer judge, you will evaluate the videos and engage virtually in live conversations with EAST students. Live conversations will take place on March 18, 2021. More details to come!
