"The Com Form" as this form is called is used by the Communications Committee to compile a comprehensive list of Hams volunteering across the various committees for the event.

You will also need to complete a 2018 Volunteer Signup on the a BP MS150 Signup Genius Site (if you have not already done so). This is your official registration as a volunteer for the event and will connect you with your primary committee.
