Call for Volunteers

Sign up to volunteer for WordCamp Portland! It’s an easy way to get the most out of WordCamp Portland, join an amazing team, build friendships with other great WordPress people, and give back to our open source community — all at the same time!

There are several different opportunities and ways to chip in, with a mix of different time commitments and skills required. The main thing we ask is that you be friendly and reliable. If that sounds like you, read on to learn about our needs, and complete the form at the bottom of this post to apply. Our volunteer coordinator Matthew Eppelsheimer will be in touch.

Our Needs

Audio / Video — Requires knowing your way around audio & video equipment. Bonus points if you’d like to bring along your own equipment to help record sessions.

Emcees — Keep things running on time. Always keep your eye on the clock and remind speakers when it’s time to begin and wrap up.

Food & Beverage — Everything from serving food and beverages to making grocery store runs as needed. You’ll help keep everyone well fed and happy. If you are licensed to serve alcohol in Oregon, let us know!

Happiness Bar — Help people with their WordPress-powered sites throughout the day. Requires solid experience and skill with the WordPress user interface.

Publicity — Got a knack for promotion? Know your way around the Portland tech scene? Help us in advance get the word out to potential attendees and sponsors.

Registration — Check in attendees at the door and hand out name tags and swag. This might be for you if you enjoy checking off lists and saying hello 100+ times before 9am. Coffee is included. 😉

Room Runners — Handle anything unexpected to keep things running smoothly.

Wherever there’s a need — Helping out with random unspecified things here and there, etc.

Other — Do you have a creative notion to contribute in some specific way we haven’t thought of? Great! Let us know.


Ready to sign up? Fill out the form below and we’ll be in touch.
