Volunteer Roles

We’re looking for a number of volunteers with a wide variety of skills to help out throughout the day. Here are some of the roles we’ll be looking at filling:


Your role will be to help manage the registration table, ensure that attendees get registered and receive their badges and gifts. We also need people to act as ambassadors in the venue and help lost people find the rooms they are looking for.

Registration Manager

For this role, we are looking for someone to help us make sure the registration table runs smoothly during the day. For that we’re looking for someone who is not interested in attending sessions (or not more than one) and can be at the registration table most of the day.

Room Host

Your role is to help keep speakers on time, get water or supplies they need, assist with any questions they may have, and let us know if there are problems in the room, such as A/V equipment failure. This is one of the plum positions as you get to watch the sessions while doing your task.

Video Gurus

We need a pair of video gurus for each of our two session rooms. This position is a full day position so we can keep the video quality high and consistent from one session to the next throughout the day. Having a pair of video gurus in each room will provide built-in backup when one needs a quick break. The video equipment is provided.

Video Coordinator

You’ll be in charge of ensuring the equipment is set up at the beginning of the day, provide assistance to the video gurus if there are any issues during the day and getting all of the video together in one place at the end of the day.

General Helpers

You may not have a specific role at the start of the day, but there’s always things to do. Whether it’s helping to fill swag bags, helping people find the room they’re looking for and anything else that might pop up throughout the day, you’ll be there to lend a hand.

If you’re interested in volunteering, please fill in the Volunteer Signup Form and we’ll be reviewing them on a FIFO (first-in-first-out) basis.
