Conference Job Opportunities

During the summer, University Housing provides accommodations to a wide variety of conference groups, such as youth sports camps, academic and educational workshops for adults, Georgia State University New Student Orientation, religious groups, etc.

A team of approximately two to four conference managers (CMs) are responsible for managing the delivery of these services to contracted sponsors and guests as arranged through the University Housing Conference Services office. A full time conference coordinator supervises the conference managers. The conference managers supervise the conference assistants (CAs) during the summer season.
