Rather than list where we think we need people, this form is designed so that people can tell us about their availability, skills, and passions. We can then use that information to see what capacities we may be able to direct people to in order to best serve the community and the event as we start organizing for next year.
The more people that get involved, the wider we'll be able to spread the load, which helps us keep our leads leading and lets EVERYONE burn.

Typically, roles fall into a spectrum of shorter, regular time commitments leading up to the event all the way to spending a weekend doing a much larger project.
Organizers spend a lot of time coordinating resources and managing projects.
Producers make all of the things, whether it's e-mails, the survival guide, social media posts, graphics, or signs for the event.
Operational staff manage most of the event staffing needs, from gate to HQ, sound to safety. They don't do the work, they help make sure volunteers are getting the work done.
Builders do a lot of the hard work of site prep, placing signage and marking, and leaning into big projects during work weekends.
Followers are really the unsung heroes of SunBurn. They don't do a lot of leading, but they put their hand up when someone says they need help and lean into getting a job done.
