Volunteering for OSBridge 2012: Important Dates

Calling all volunteers past, present and future: This year’s Open Source Bridge is happening June 26-29 and we need your help to make it happen!

We have many volunteer positions available — from simple errand-running and greeting participants, to more complicated tasks like registration and session room attendant. We have something for everyone, and you don’t have to be an über coder to be a stellar volunteer.

As in years past, we are offering a free conference pass to those of you who volunteer for 8 or more hours during the conference.

Scheduling for on-site shifts will open in a few weeks and we’ll post again at that time.

Meanwhile, read on for more information about upcoming Volunteer Meet & Greets as well as the dates for mandatory Volunteer Orientation.

***Mark these dates in your calendar!***
