CONFERENCE PRODUCTION ASSISTANT

We are seeking someone who wants to be part of a key, behind-the-scenes team; who lives to pore over minute details, tackle overlapping projects, juggle competing deadlines, delve into heavy proofreading, and undertake constant re-prioritizing; and who can deftly handle the needs of several people at once. If you are that person, please apply for our CONFERENCE PRODUCTION ASSISTANT position.

Each of CHI’s conferences takes roughly eleven months to bring from concept to reality. During those months, conference production assistants work closely with members of the conference team to pull everything together—often in the face of overlapping and conflicting deadlines. While many of the tasks we do are administrative in nature, this is not your typical admin job. We support projects, rather than people, and your projects are yours to own. Tasks are assigned by your manager, but direction for those tasks can come from any member of the conference team. It can be a lot to juggle, but it is never boring.

Our conference production assistant group is responsible for proofing all of our program information before it is released to the public, including the conference announcement and call for papers, as well as conference brochures and program guides. We are the eagle eyes of CHI—proof reading everything for spelling, grammar, formatting and consistency, with short turnarounds and high standards.

We also work extensively with our conference speakers—senior scientists from pharma, biotech, academia and government, with busy schedules and lots of questions. We confirm the details of their participation at conferences and communicate deadlines for materials needed…and then follow up…repeatedly…to make sure we have the materials we need, when we need them.

Our conference production assistant group also manages all of the material that the attendees receive when they arrive at a conference—program guides, evaluations and flyers. We coordinate internally to get up-to-date content from all members of the conference team, then compile, edit, format and get approvals, all while working against a hard print deadline.

Because of the volume of conferences that CHI produces over the course of a year, organization and prioritization are a MUST to balance a workload of multiple projects at various stages at all times.
If you have at least 2 years of experience doing any – or, better yet, all – of the above, please apply for our conference production assistant position. It is a great job working with an amazing team, and can be the beginning of a long career with a fabulous company!
