I am a student Academy member - how do I become a Washington State member? 
Your national/Academy dues include state/affiliate membership.  When you pay your dues, you select your state.  There is no additional charge.

I would love to job-shadow someone.  Is that possible? 
As a student Washington State Academy member, you have access to the members-only mentor section of the website.  You can search for a specific geographical or practice area.  Check with one of the listed mentors - they may be willing to have you job-shadow.

I am planning on attending conference.  Are there volunteer opportunities at conference that might reduce my registration rate? 
The Washington State Academy works hard to keep registration rates as low as possible for convention - especially for students.  At this time, we do not have volunteer positions that would further reduce fees. The one exception is if you are serving as a Student Executive Board representative, your registration to conference is complimentary.
