Volunteer & Work Exchange Opportunities
2/26/2020 Update: Join the volunteer waiting list by completing the form below. Submitting this form does not hold a spot for you or guarantee a volunteer opportunity. If an opening becomes available, we will contact you. If you have already registered at that time, we will refund the amount of hte volunteer discount.
Volunteers are essential to the success of the conference. We depend on women who are interested in the conference experience who also want to play a role in making it all happen. It takes a team of about 25 of us each year!
Volunteering comes with some financial perks. Depending on shift, volunteers receive either complimentary registration or a discount in exchange for volunteering before or during the conference.
How Volunteering Works
Once you have decided you are available and interested in a volunteer opportunity, apply by completing the form below. We will contact you via phone or email to discuss your application. Once accepted, you will be asked to do the following to secure your spot:
1. Sign a volunteer agreement
2. Register for the conference, paying the balance due after your volunteer discount is applied (if applicable)
3. If you are volunteering for the first year, you will be asked to write and mail a check for the amount of your volunteer discount, only to be cashed in the event that you are unable to fulfill your volunteer role or cancel within the week before the conference and a replacement cannot be found.
