As an NYLT staff member, you will get the chance to see what goes on “behind the scenes” and build onto your knowledge you already gained during the conference.  While staffing will require a few months of dedicated preparation, it all pays off when you actually put on the conference.  Staff participation is fun and rewarding.

  • Staff development requires several Friday night to Saturday night weekends.  In addition, there are preparation and clean-up periods before and after each session.
  • See either the staff application or information sheet for specific dates and times.
