## Call for Volunteers

Are you great with people? Have some familiarity with audio visual 
technologies? Confident addressing an audience? Able to use chat 
systems, online document sharing and social media?

Then we'd love to have you on board as a Volunteer on the ground in 
Gladstone in mid-April to make the magic happen.

If you're a regular Volunteer at Everything Open and just want to skip 
to the sign up [0] - thank you!

If you’re new to it all and want to help out, keep reading!

We’re all volunteers ourselves and we need more – we can’t run the 
conference by ourselves, particularly during the week of the conference 

We need help with:

* Checking attendees in when they arrive
* Operating AV equipment such as audio gear and cameras
* Directing people around our venue
* Ensuring talks and tutorials run to schedule
* Setting up and packing up the conference

Anyone who has volunteered for a [Linux Australia 
event](https://linux.org.au/events) before will tell you it’s a very 
busy time, but also very worthwhile. It’s satisfying to know that you’ve 
helped everyone at the conference to get the most out of it. It’s very 
rewarding knowing that you’ve made a positive difference to someone’s 

You don’t just get to meet the Delegates and Speakers, you also get to 
know many of them while helping them out. You are presented with a 
unique opportunity to get the behind the scenes and close to the action. 
You’ll get to forge new relationships with amazing, interesting and 
wonderful people (just like you), whom you might not have otherwise had 
the good fortune to meet in any other way.

In return for your help we’ll provide you with:

* Food - morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea
* A clean T shirt everyday
* If you want one, a letter of reference at the end of the conference

Depending on the number of Volunteers we get and workload (many hands 
make light work), we’ll do our best to allocate you to roles so that you 
can attend talks that interest you.

For more information, please check out our Volunteers page [1], where we 
have full details of what we need assistance with. We review and approve 
applications regularly.
