NSM-CU 2023 - Student Volunteer Programme

To improve the conference organization and evolve an all-inclusive conference, where the younger generation is offered greater involvement in running our annual conference, we introduce volunteering as a social responsibility duty. This volunteering program at the year conference targets postgraduate and undergraduate students that wish to take up responsibility at the conference and related events as a show of entering early management role and becoming NSM ambassadors.

We, therefore, invite all intended students (Undergraduate & Postgraduate) to register as a volunteer on the registration page by choosing the most likely role they wish to perform while the conference last. As it states, it is a volunteering placement without any financial incentive. We encourage and welcome interested students to register early.

Conference Date: July 24 -28th 2023

CONFERENCE VENUE: CUCRID Conference Hall, Centre for Research, Innovation, and Discovery, Covenant University (CUCRID), Ota, Ogun State, Nigeria.
