Welcome Wagon/Concierge Committee
Helps with greeting newcomers, directing people to evening activities and local points of interest, etc. and being generally awesome to the community.
Sets up registration table, signage and welcome packets, ensures proper power availability to conference attendees, etc.
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.
