One of the cool things about WordCamps is they are organized and put on entirely by volunteers, and everyone participates by contributing what they can. It may be that you volunteer to work before, during or after the event, speak at the event, or reach out to help a fellow camper. Our theme is all about “Connection” this year and hopefully you’ll be making some memorable ones.
We will need more volunteers as the event gets closer and primarily for the days of the WordCamp, July 24-26. Being a volunteer is a great way of giving back to the WordPress community, and meeting a lot of great people that normally you might not have had a chance to talk to. Not to mention some behind the scenes fun.
Please review the below information BEFORE you sign up.
- You will need to commit to at least one full day – July 24th , 25th or 26th. Saturday the 25th is our busiest day and usually when we need the most help. Day preferences are available on the sign up form.
- On the form, please pick the areas you would be interested in volunteering in but keep in mind that spot may not be available, so pick multiple areas.
- Most of the help needed during the event involves setting up, registration, and session moderation.
- You must check with your volunteer coordinator(s) upon arrival on your committed day. More information will be in the emails we’ll be sending to approved volunteers.
- Read our WordCamp Code of Conduct. By applying to volunteer you are agreeing to play by these guidelines!
- Signing up below is great, but you will get an official email from WordCamp Asheville Team when you have been selected. Don’t show up on the day of the event saying you are a volunteer… we won’t have space for you!
- Compensation – Although we would expect volunteers to have a giving attitude – we want to give something back to say thanks. You will receive a 50% discount on your ticket.
- If you’re truly interested in being part of the team, get your signup form in early; we have very few spots open.
