Volunteering at GCUC: a call to UNaction!

Thanks Don!

Hey Coworking peeps! I know you’re as excited as I am to get to see each other in Austin. If you’re really wanting to help out, but not sure what to do here’s some ideas for volunteers:

• Session planning / building (there’s so many of us this year that we are planning a multi track unconference which means we will need multiple teams to help build the schedules. (This requires some former Barcamp experience as well as showing up at 9 am on the morning of the unconference).

• Note taking. For all of the people who won’t be in each session, and those following from afar it’s crucial that we take some good notes this year! We’ve got a plan, and we need your help to make it happen. (This requires writing or typing skillz)

• Typing up notes after each session. nuff said.

There’s more to do but that gives a little food for the mind!

Can’t wait to see ya’ll!

Wanna be a GCUC insider this year? Volunteering is a great outlet for those of you who can’t stand sitting idly in the audience while people drone on endlessly on stage.

But choose wisely my friend. Be selective about which day you volunteer for. Consider that volunteering over at the GCUC conference will probably be sheer, mind-numbing drudgery. You’ll be staring down the business end of endless imperatives, like, “Carry my water!” “Fetch me coffee!” “Rub my aching feet!”*

So, why not take a ride on the “UN” side?

Turn on, tune in, drop _out** by _volunteering for the UnConference (day two of the conference).
