We’re looking for volunteers to help us with set up, pre-conference activities and to keep things running smoothly on the day of the conference. In exchange for your time and effort, you will receive free admission to the conference.
Anyone interested in volunteering needs to fill out the online form for the day and time that works best for your schedule - the volunteer coordinator cannot add you to the list. Each shift has a limited number of spots, and you only need to sign up for one shift. If you are unable to access the sign-up sheet for the shift you prefer, it has reached capacity and you need to sign up for a different day or time.
You should receive an email generated by the website to confirm that your submission was registered. If you do not receive such an email within two (2) days of filling out the online form, please go back onto the site and try submitting your form again using the same email address. The system will either take the second try or indicate that the email has already been registered – either way your submission is confirmed. You do not need to contact the Volunteer Coordinator.
We will take names for the waiting list only after all spots on all shifts are full. Each year we utilize volunteers from the waiting list, but we cannot guarantee which shift might become available or how much advance notice you will be provided regarding volunteer openings.
