Welcome Wagon/Concierge Committee
Preconference Setup Help
Help manage preconference sessions, setting up projectors, etc.
Sheraton Society Hill (Conference Hotel):
Chemical Heritage Foundation:
Answering general questions on Twitter and IRC:
Ask questions on mic on behalf of community (because of distance, mic aversion, etc)
Access: Look into technology/procedures to make connecting to, and maintaining a connection to, IRC less painful. i.e. make sure wifi will allow connection, and someone needs to contact freenode about the sudden influx of people.
- Mx Matienzo (anarchivist)
Helper: Demonstrate how to get onto #code4lib during Registration. Offer support for newcomers in #code4lib during the conference.
Registration Desk Volunteers
Session Timer Volunteers
People who volunteer to sit up front, keep time (and bring timer equipment - i.e. a laptop or tablet with a stopwatch program). It's good to have two people in each slot to back each other up in case of machinery failure.
