Buddy program

Applications for the Buddy program have now closed.

Are you new to the HERDSA conference, and feeling unsure about how to navigate your way around all the sessions, events, workshops and more? Would a guiding hand make it a little less overwhelming?

Or have you been here before? Do you know which sessions are ‘not to be missed’, how to navigate the program, rooms and social events? And would you be like to share this knowledge and experience?

Then the HERDSA buddy program is here for you!

Join our buddy program

Are you new to the HERDSA conference? Are you travelling alone? Would like to be introduced to some peers before coming to the conference?

If your answer is ‘yes’ we will pair you with a HERDSA buddy who is familiar with the HERDSA conference and will make you feel welcome and assist in networking with fellow delegates.

You can sign up to be assigned a HERDSA buddy while registering for the conference.

We invite you to be a HERDSA buddy

If you are familiar with the HERDSA conference, you would make a great HERDSA buddy. Your role will be to make new delegates feel welcome, and assist them with networking.
