Last night, Tuesday, August 16th, we had our first volunteer meeting. It was a great chance to talk to 50 or so people about our upcoming code camp. We went over all the volunteer jobs that are available both before and after the event, as well as had a good general Q&A session about code camp in general
One thing that came up was when can people sign up for the jobs at code camp. The answer is about 2 weeks before the event. What we will do is send out a mailing, post on this blog, twitter and facebook that signing up for volunteer jobs is now open. That means, you can come to our site and choose which job(s) and when you want to volunteer. Spots are on a first come first pick basis so if you want a particular job, you need to run (not walk) to the site and pick your favorite job. Whether that is Registration help or Lunch cleanup, they all fill up pretty quickly so make it a fast dash.
Finally, I just want to mentiont he benefits of volunteering
- Satisfaction in helping make this free attendee event the best it can be
- Meet lots of interseting people
- Admission to BBQ Saturday night including Vegetarian meals as well as Andy’s BBQ
To get an idea of what jobs are available, take a look at this screen shot of what you will see when coming to the site (once we open up volunteering). This just shows Saturday, but there are Sunday job also to help with.
