If you are this type of person and you would like to help with TechFest this year, please take a few moments to fill out the form. You do not have to be in the tech industry or have a technical background to be a volunteer.
I'M INTERESTED, BUT I HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS...
How do you pick volunteers?
We would like to take anyone who wants to volunteer. And trust us, we would if we could. However, we have a limited number of spots. Volunteers are picked by "first come, first serve".
How long will I have to volunteer?
Just the day of the event. The day of the conference we start early, around 7am. We are finished not long after the sessions wrap up.
Will I get to see any speaker sessions?
We also recognize that you want to see some of the great sessions that will happen during the event. We would never discourage anyone from seeing sessions, but we cannot guarantee that you will get to attend every speaker you want to see. Some of the jobs may require you to do something during a session. If this is a problem for you, then please do not volunteer. We are only looking for people who are serious about helping the conference.
If I am picked to volunteer, then what?
We will contact you (probably by email) if you are selected as a volunteer. If you are selected, you are the only person we are expecting to come the day of the event. If you want your significant other, family member, or friend to come, then sign them up to volunteer. We ask that you do not bring them on the day of the conference to volunteer without contacting the Volunteer Coordinator.
What kind of jobs might I do?
The jobs listed in the form are what we can think of now, but things tend to come up during the event. You may be asked to switch to another job at a moments notice, so please be flexible. If you are uncomfortable with any of the jobs listed, then you may want to reconsider volunteering.
