ISACA relies upon the support of volunteers to facilitate smooth conference operations and an incredible attendee experience. Volunteers typically serve as session monitors, registration assistants, or wayfinders and are representatives of ISACA, working closely with ISACA staff and other volunteers, conference attendees, and speakers. Volunteers receive a discount on conference registration in exchange for at least one shift. Those who do not sign into their shift will be charged the regular conference rate.

1. Click here to select your shift via SignUpGenius. (Do not click apply above on this page; you will NOT be signed up to volunteer.)
2. After you finish your shift selection, you'll receive an email confirmation from SignUpGenius with your volunteer promo code.
3. Register for Infosecurity-ISACA (FULL CONFERENCE PASS ONLY) using the promo code and pay the discounted rate. 

Shifts are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, and volunteers must register for the conference using the promo code in the Sign Up Genius confirmation email immediately after signing up to volunteer. Failure to register and pay the fees will result in forfeiting the volunteer shift.
