Call for Volunteers

Be a part of the first WordCamp in New Orleans since 2009 and volunteer! We need you to help us make WordCamp NOLA a success!

How exactly can you help? We will need volunteers in the following areas:

Registration – Check in registered attendees and hand out nametags. Being really awesome with alphabetical order helps here.

Happiness Bar Answer questions and help WordPress users fix problems with their sites. Must be able to show level of expertise to be selected for this gig.

Swag and t-shirt station – Pre-conference prep work includes folding/rolling shirts and organizing swag. Handing out t-shirts and swag on the day.

Video – We need volunteers to act as camera operators. Great gig, since you can watch sessions at the same time. Video Experience REQUIRED.

Emcees – Introduce speakers/sessions and keep things running on time. Keep an eye on the clock and give speakers a heads up when they are down to 10 and 5 minutes, and let them know when their time is up. Brevity and wit a must.

Runners – Work with the emcees, video people, speakers, and everyone else to keep things running smoothly. Make sure there’s water for speakers, and provide support as needed for other event staff.
