Call for Volunteers: TSA CONNECT Moderator

Are you an outgoing people-person who can always keep the conversation going? Then come join us as a Moderator at TSA CONNECT!

TSA CONNECT is a popular after-work professional and mentorship event that brings together experienced industry professionals with students, emerging practitioners, and newcomers in the AEC industry. Each session features new guests, topics, and small group discussions giving participants the opportunity to ask questions and form connections. Sessions happen both online and in-person and include a structured networking component (speed-dating style) and an informal mix and mingle.

Our Moderators are outgoing people-persons, who can jump in, facilitate and encourage discussions between our Featured Guests and attendees. They can read the room (or table) and know when their help is needed to keep the conversation going. They are approachable, reliable, and friendly individuals who always want to learn more about the people they meet!



What to expect?

For in-person events, Moderators are expected to be in attendance at the venue (usually CSI The Annex or another downtown location) from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM, arriving shortly before the event begins and leaving after the structured networking portion of the evening is done. Moderators will join each of the tables during the structured networking portion of the evening and make sure the conversation is always flowing at their respective tables.

In addition to providing support through the structured networking portion of the evening, we are always looking for people to lend a hand with setup, attendee check in, and packing things up at the end of the evening. If you are willing to help out, let us know!



Important Dates

We have anywhere between 2-4 TSA CONNECT sessions throughout the year. The next two sessions are scheduled for:

Thursday, November 10, 2022 (Theme: Newcomers)
Wednesday, February 8, 2023 (Theme: Job Hunting)
