Volunteers are the backbone of any great WordCamp. You’ll be helping to make our event run as smoothly as possible, ensuring a fun time is had by all. Plus, it’s a great way to get more involved in the WordPress community! If you’re interested in volunteering, please read the information below, and let us know how you’d like to help out in the contact form at the bottom of this page.
Volunteers will be asked to work the event for at least four hours, which entitles them to a free event ticket for the whole weekend (subject to volunteer needs and availability). You are, of course, welcome to volunteer for more than four hours, but please be sure to take some time to enjoy the event! Here are the roles we’re looking to fill:
PRE-EVENT SETUP (FRIDAY AFTERNOON)
We’ll need help getting everything set up the night before everything begins. From folding t-shirts to alphabetizing name tags, it’s all in the details. This will be limited to 5-6 people, so if please choose another volunteer role as well to make sure you get to volunteer.
SETUP/REGISTRATION DESK (7AM SATURDAY)
The Registration Desk will serve as our home base throughout the event, but the main need here is early morning set up and registration. We’ll need help setting up signs, and the registration area. Once registration begins in the morning, we’ll need well-organized volunteers to ensure smooth check-ins and keep lines and waiting times short.
SESSION ROOM EMCEE (MORNING OR AFTERNOON)
Do you love talking or want experience talking to groups of people? For this position we want people who want the microphone in their hand. Our emcees will introduce speakers, keep speakers aware of the time, and help attendees with general event questions.
ROOM RUNNER (MORNING OR AFTERNOON)
Questions always come up, or maybe something is needed and someone needs to run and get it. This person will be the one who can deliver!
HAPPINESS BAR (TWO HOUR SHIFTS)
Do you like helping others to learn how to use WordPress? We need WordPress experts to help man the Happiness Bar. Users of all levels will come to you for help with their websites. It’s a great way to give back to the community and see what people are doing with WordPress as the same time!
A photography maestro will capture all the people, sights, and happenings of WordCamp NYC 2014. We need a volunteer willing to use their own camera and contribute the photos to the WordCamp NYC community to use.
Our all-purpose all-stars will be filling in where they are needed most. We need people to willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done.
We need a handful of our volunteers to stay a bit late to help clean up and pack stuff up.
