The purpose of these questions is to get to know you a little better, so that we might select the best possible volunteer group. The responsibilities will be split fairly across the volunteers. Volunteers won't be required to do more than 20 hours worth of work.
Standard volunteers will be asked to do things like,
Assist at a workshop (on either July 2 or July 3) with logistics and technical issues. Most are half-day.Staffing the registration desk (7:30am - 10:00am July 4, and during one three hour block at another time of the conference so that the desk always has someone at it)Assisting delegates with finding the location of sessions, and with the venue (toilets, ect)Help set up morning/afternoon tea, and lunch Helping set up the conference party (July 4, 5pm-7:30pm)Possibly helping set up a second social event in the CBD
While acting as a volunteer, you'll have to wear a volunteer T-Shirt which you can keep, to make you stand out to the other attendees!
Being a SUPER volunteer will involve,
Coordinating the other volunteers (with up to two other super volunteers), including putting together a volunteer program before the conferenceLiasing with all the standard volunteers, arranging for the purchase of volunteer t-shirts
Volunteers will receive a free registration to the conference. This includes attendance at all workshops (though some require separate free registration), the main conference, and all social events. The main conference (4-6 July) includes morning & afternoon tea, lunch, and dinner on July 4. Volunteers may also be eligible to attend the new to DiGRA breakfasts and gender diversity breakfasts. Volunteers will also receive the immeasurable satisfaction of contributing to the success of the DiGRA conference, which has been entirely organised by volunteers.
