2013 AATOD Conference Volunteer Information

Dear Colleagues:

The American Association for the Treatment of Opioid Dependence (AATOD), Inc. is dedicated to its mission to enhance the quality of patient care in opioid treatment programs throughout the United States, Mexico and in cooperation with the European Opiate Addiction Treatment Association (EUROPAD) and other nations as well. The 2013 AATOD Conference is the premier training event for counselors, medical practitioners, clinicians, policy makers, community partners, advocates and others involved in medication assisted treatment.

As Chair of the Volunteer Committee, I encourage you to become a member of our team of volunteers for the 2013 AATOD Conference-Let Recovery Ring in a New Era, at the Marriott Philadelphia Downtown, November 9-13, 2013. The role of conference volunteers is to meet and greet conference participants and to assist with whatever questions or needs they have. Volunteers will be a vital part of a successful AATOD Conference by making everyone feel welcome as they enjoy their stay in our wonderful city.

We will work as a team to make the AATOD Conference a successful event for all attending. Volunteers are needed for various areas and events, including the welcome reception, plenary sessions, exhibit, poster sessions, workshops, general meeting areas, main hallways, awards ceremony, and conference meetings.


Benefits of Volunteer Services:

  • Seven hours (7) of work allows you to attend the entire conference at a flat rate of $ 315 (regular early registration rate is $ 510)
  • For each full day you volunteer, you many attend the conference free on another day.
  • Volunteers will receive a certificate of participation and a free volunteer conference uniform.
  • Volunteers will be provided a light breakfast and a lunch allowance for a full day of volunteering.


Mandatory attendance to a training session is required of all volunteers, usually scheduled for the Friday before the conference begins. At that time, you will tour the hotel and be trained for your specific volunteer assignment.

Please accept this invitation to become a Volunteer by completing this APPLICATION.

Volunteers will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis. Thank you in advance for your support. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kimberley Trusty-Doughty at (215) 923-1661.
