Volunteers

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:

  1. Register for the event
  2. 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.
  3. Attend one of our volunteer orientations

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:

Volunteer Roles

Presenter Wrangler

Presenter Wranglers ensure that presenters are available, at their computer, and have completed setup and testing procedures prior to their session.

Room Moderator

Room Moderators monitor the chat in the session and point attendees in the right direction. Duties include making sure attendees know where to ask questions for the presenter, pasting boilerplate informative text before, during, and after each session, watching for/reporting Code of Conduct violations, and reporting event-related issues.

Slack Moderator

Slack Watchers are responsible for monitoring Slack channels during the event. Duties include answering questions, making sure discussions find the right channel, pasting boilerplate informative text when they see fit, watching for/reporting Code of Conduct violations, and reporting event-related issues.

Social Media Moderator

Social Media Watchers are responsible for monitoring social media channels, e.g. the #WPCampus hashtag, during the event. Duties include answering questions, watching for/reporting Code of Conduct violations, and reporting event-related issues.

Submit volunteer form

  • We will use the WPCampus Slack workspace to communicate during the event. If you're not a member of our Slack, you can sign-up using our membership form. If you're already a member and need a Slack invite, let us know via our contact form.
  • Please check all that apply. We ask volunteers to sign up for a morning and/or afternoon slot.
  • Check out the WPCampus 2020 schedule and tell us your must-attend sessions. We'll use this information to create the volunteer schedule. If you don't have any must-see sessions, just write "No preference."
