Reduced Registration, Volunteering, Surveys, and Poster Presentations
MOA welcomes student participation! Students bring energy to the MOA Conference and help long-time members rethink long-held positions with new information and insightful questions.
MOA offers a reduced student conference registration for $65 that includes access to sessions and all meals for 2 1/2 days, but if you are willing to volunteer, we can reduce that rate further. Volunteering provides the opportunity to meet leaders in Montana's organic community as well as the chance to take in conference sessions.
SURVEYS - Students frequently request to conduct surveys at the MOA Conference. MOA requires that surveys have faculty oversight and Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval, if appropriate. Check with us before you plan your survey: Dr. Heather Estrada firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Mac Burgess email@example.com or MOA Executive Director Jamie Lockman at firstname.lastname@example.org or (406) 546-6572.
In addition to welcoming students to the conference and providing volunteer opportunities, MOA sets aside space and time for students to show their work with posters going up on Thursday, December 5 (time at student's convenience) and or poster presentations held on Friday, December 6 at 3:50 pm. (Time subject to change, check the conference schedule for the most up-to-date time).
Student poster presentations are typically 5- 10 minutes with 5 minutes for questions. Students are responsible for producing their own posters. Complete proposals received by October 31 will receive priority consideration. Ideally, students will be working with a faculty advisor overseeing their work.
