  • a complimentary ticket to the annual conference after-event

  • an exclusive invitation to an annual volunteers-only thank you event with a special guest speaker (will be live broadcast to those outside Utah)

  • recognition on our website and at the annual conference

All conference positions that successfully complete their assignment also receive complimentary entrance to the conference, including lunch.
