Student Buddy Program

Will this be your first ACSM Annual Meeting? Or maybe you’re attending alone? Participating in the ACSM Annual Meeting Student Buddy Program is a great way to navigate a large conference and expand your network. This program is designed to make conference attendance more approachable by pairing you with someone who shares your professional interests.

When possible, first time attendees will be paired with someone familiar with the meeting. Experienced attendees are encouraged to participate and share their meeting knowledge. Pairings will be made based on availability until the start of the conference. Participants are expected to be current students and/or recent graduates. 

Sign-up to be an ACSM Student Buddy.
