[Internal] Peak and Elite Volunteer Opportunities

Jun 15, 2017

The Student Engagement Office is looking for volunteers to help out with day-of operations at our upcoming introductory case competitions:

Peak Performance

July 8th from 8am-5pm

Burnaby Campus

Elite Case Competition

July 22nd from 8am-5pm

Surrey Campus.


If you have an interest in learning more about case competitions but have not yet participated in any of our introductory opportunities, this is a great opportunity for you to take advantage of!

You may volunteer for one or both days if you like.  We are looking for a time commitment between 8:00am and 5:00pm for either competition for all volunteer positions below.  Volunteers will also be asked to attend an orientation meeting at Burnaby campus for half an hour that will be arranged based on what everyone’s schedules look like during the week leading up to the event.

Position to fill for both Peak and Elite are:

Registration Hosts/Hospitality Supervisors (2)

  • Hold down the fort where competitors, judges and volunteers all sign in.  We need to be able to keep an organized flow going as everyone registers and comes and goes throughout the competitions.
  • Keeping an eye on our catering situation throughout the day with emphasis on making sure lunch runs smoothly.

Presentation Room Liaisons (4)

  • Combination of both time keeper throughout the presentations as well as hosts for our judges in your assigned rooms.  You will operate a stop watch and keep the competitors aware of their time constraints as well as keep those of us in the hospitality room aware of any needs your judges may have.

Team Liaisons (4)

  • Responsible for escorting teams to and from their presentations – we need someone to make sure they are where they need to be when we need them to be there!

You will come away with a greater understanding of case competition operations and learn a lot about case analysis from watching the presentations and listening to the Q&A with the judges.  Everyone will have the opportunity to watch a significant portion of the event.  If you are unable to watch the preliminary round as a Presentation Room Liaison, I will make sure you have the opportunity to watch the final round in the afternoon.  Duties may shift around in the afternoon as we work together to accommodate this intention.

To sign up as a volunteer, please email  mar2@sfu.ca to let me know you would like to participate as a competition volunteer.  Please let me know your preferred competition (Peak, Elite, or Both) and volunteer position(s) as well as your SFU student number and SFU email address.
