Call for Volunteers

It’s that time again. WordCamp Los Angeles is around the corner, and we need your help!

Will this be your first WordCamp? Or do you have more WordCamp T-shirts than you know what to do with? Either way, volunteering is a great way to get involved and give back to the incredible WordPress community. And today could be your lucky day, because we’re looking for some volunteers to lend us a hand!

Why should I volunteer?

XOXO Alex Because the WordPress community is awesome! You’ll also get a free ticket for the weekend, a t-shirt, and a 5×7 autographed picture of Alex Vasquez and his great hair. But most importantly, you’ll receive our undying gratitude*! Really, it’s the least we can do.

* non-transferrable, no cash value, not for resale.

Interested? Perfect, keep on reading! We are currently looking for the following:

Registration Wranglers: Having attendees is great. Getting those attendees checked in is even better. We’ll need your help in the morning to wrangle all the stray cats attendees, and make sure the registration process goes smoothly. Expect a large rush with all-hands-on-deck in the morning, and then rotating shifts at registration throughout the day. If you’re willing to help us hand out t-shirts in the afternoon too, that’s awesome!

Happiness Bartenders: The Happiness Bar is a place where WordPress experts offer help and advice to other attendees. If you know a thing or two about WordPress and would like to share that knowledge, then the Happiness Bar is a great place to do so!

Room Monitors: Each room will need at least one room monitor present at all times. You’ll need to get the room under control before each presentation and keep things on schedule. You’ll keep the speakers aware of their time, and help transition between sessions. We’ll have multiple room monitors, so you won’t be tied to the same room all day.

General Helpers: We’ll need people to help out with smaller tasks throughout the day. This could range from helping attendees with directions, hauling equipment, or just about anything. tl;dr: We need help!

If you’re interested in helping, and you are comfortable committing to the date, let us know!
