Work part-time during DCAC International Fitness Education Conference 2018 and receive a discounted registration on the main conference registration fee! DCAC utilizes the efforts of individuals to assist with the many on-site responsibilities that are required to produce our conference. Staff Assistant positions allow an individual to attend the conference at a reduced cost in exchange for their labor. You do not need to have prior experience in order to apply, and they do not need to have a fitness industry-related background. Staff assistant registrations will be limited to the first 50 people to sign up. Please read and make sure you meet the requirements before registering as a staff assistant. Work schedules cannot be customized around specific sessions. You CAN however, register and pay separately for many of the Pre Conference Events and still be a staff assistant. When you are not working, staff assistants attend sessions just like a regular attendee. CEC’s may be earned for both those sessions that you attend in full as well as those for which you are assigned to work. Job responsibilities may include: Setup, Door Monitor, Sound Technician, Registration Assistant, and Teardown. Part-time Staff Assistants will be scheduled to work sixteen (16) hours during the length of the conference. The registration fee to be a staff assistant is $99. There is a $50 cancellation fee. For more information, please contact Jamie Nicholls by emailing dcacfitness@aol.com or calling (800) DCAC.551.

All Staff Assistants must be available to work/attend the entire conference from Thursday August 2, 2018 at 6:30 pm until Sunday August 5, 2018 at 4:00 pm. NO EXCEPTIONS! You may not be required to work these particular hours, but to make scheduling manageable, we ask that all staff assistants be available during this time period. Staff assistants receive the discounted registration rate in exchange for working 16 hours during the conference. You will be required to attend a staff meeting on Thursday night, August 2nd at 6:30 pm at the Hyatt Regency Reston Hotel in order to review the duties you will be asked to perform during the weekend. You will register like a regular attendee and select a session for each time slot. After the staff assistant work schedule is complete (about one month prior to the conference), you will receive your assigned duties. You will be allowed to attend your selected sessions when you are not scheduled to work. For more information, please contact Jamie Nicholls by emailing dcacfitness@aol.com or calling (800) DCAC.551.

Cancellation/Refund Policy: NO REFUNDS! I understand that if I cannot attend the conference, I may transfer my registration to another individual for a $50.00 processing fee. In the event of a medical emergency or death in the family, I can receive a credit for my registration towards a future DCAC Convention/Event. The credit will be issued, less a $50.00 processing fee. (Both a transfer and a credit require that written notification by postal mail is received by 07/20/17. Please mail requests to DCAC Fitness Conventions, 8141 Solitude Lane, Mechanicsville, VA 23111 USA.) Presenters, classes, dates and times are subject to change without notice.
