Committee Chairs

The EYH conference, which takes place in April each year, is organized by a group of about 30 student Committee Chairs who are each in charge of different aspects of the program. Each committee has a chair and may also contain several committee members who are learning about how EYH is organized. Chair positions get filled around May for the following year's conference. If you are interested in being an EYH committee chair or member or helping out with the conference organization on April 15, 2017 please contact us at eyh@cornell.edu. You can also check out the other available volunteer options on the left!

Information for Current Chairs

Please see the Google Groups webpage for EYH chairs.
