WordCamp Los Angeles 2014 will be here before you know it, and things are really starting to come together! To help us make it the best it can possibly be, we have some very important roles to fill – volunteers!
WordCamps wouldn’t be possible without the incredible WordPress community. So, we are asking if you (yes, YOU) would like to help out. In addition to our undying gratitude, you’ll get a free ticket, a t-shirt, an invitation to our speaker/sponsor dinner and a lock of Alex Vasquez’s very nice hair.
If you’re interested, please fill out the form below. We’re looking for help with the following:
Happiness Bartenders: The Happiness Bar is a place where WordPress experts offer their help and advice to attendees. It’s a great way to share some knowledge and interact with the community. We’d love to have you help out!
Registration Wranglers: Having attendees is great, but we need to make sure we get everyone checked in. Therefore, we’ll need your help in the morning to wrangle all the attendees and stray cats, and to make sure the registration process goes smoothly.
Room Monitors: Introduce speakers and keep things on schedule. You’ll help keep the speakers aware of the time, make any announcements that need to reach the attendees, and help the transition between sessions. We’ll have multiple room monitors so you won’t be tied to the same room each day.
General Helpers: We’ll also need people to help out with smaller tasks throughout the day on Friday and Saturday. This could range from helping attendees with directions, hauling equipment, sorting tshirts or just about anything that might come up.
Social Media: If you make your home on Twitter and Facebook, we could use your help keeping the world up to date on what’s happening at WordCamp LA throughout the day on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Videography and Videos: We need help capturing all the talks on film, processing the videos and uploading to WordPress.tv so the world can enjoy our first-class speakers and presentations.
Planning help: We need help taking care of some planning tasks before the weekend of WordCamp to make sure things go well. Some sample planning tasks include: speaker gifts, arranging catering, planning the speaker/sponsor dinner, catering arrangements for Friday and Sunday, and planning the all-important after party.
