The Conference Assistant (CA) is a vital role to the Conference Services operation. Each summer our campus welcomes anywhere from 50-60 camp and conference groups to campus and the CAs serve as the first contact for those summer groups. CAs serve as an ambassador for UAB with these groups.

As a CA you will gain more skills in customer service, time-management, problem-solving, critical thinking and teamwork which will be important skills for you to have when you start looking for jobs after college. You will also get to meet people from all over the country with different backgrounds and experiences.
