WPCampus depends on volunteers to bring our events to life! There are lots of ways to contribute.
If you’re interested in volunteering please complete the form below to let us know more about your availability and interest. We’ll be in touch with more information.
I want to be a volunteer
Our community is so grateful for your support and excited to have you join our organizing team for the event.
All volunteer-related emails will come from volunteers[at]wpcampus.org so make sure this email address is not marked as spam in your inbox.
If you wish to be a volunteer, three steps are required:
- Register for the event
- Read the volunteer roles listed on this page and submit the volunteer form
- This will let us know what roles you’re interested in and when you’re available during the event.
- Attend one of our volunteer orientations
Attending an orientation meeting will be required as this will allow us to fully explain your responsibilities and for you to ask questions. You will be given info sheets prior to the meeting.
We have scheduled four orientations in the hope that everyone will be available during at least one of the slots:
- Monday, July 27 at 10 a.m. Eastern
- Monday, July 27 at 1 p.m. Eastern
- Tuesday, July 28 at 11 a.m. Eastern
- Tuesday, July 28 at 2 p.m. Eastern
