Join the Volunteer Staff at #FinCon12

Several of you have reached out to me over the last several months to let me know you’d be available as a volunteer to help the event run smoothly. While we will have a dedicated staff of 7 on-site, there is still a bit of work needed to be done. Here’s how you can get involved.

Breakout Room Coordinator – We need a minimum of three volunteers to run video and timing for the breakout sessions. Here is a sheet to sign up:

Photographer – Any budding event photographers out there? We need at least three people to serve as the official conference photographer. We could find a professional in Denver, but we thought we would see if any of you would want to do this first.

We’re not looking for much here. Just snap a few photos at each of the conference events/sessions and upload all the photos to the conference account. Pictures would be creative commons. Sign up using the same form:

Depending on the level of volunteering you are willing to do there will be some compensation involved.

Thanks so much for your help!

  1. I could *possibly* be the photographer of last resort. I don’t have an external flash, so if the lighting sucks there, there’s not much I can do about it.

    That and honestly I don’t trust myself with such a responsibility. So, yeah. Last resort.

    • Thanks, Jake. I’ll keep you in mind.

      • Less pessimism, more optimism – I’m up for the challenge. Just remembered I do have a decent new low-light technique. Combined with a tripod and I should be good to go.

        That and, uh, it’d be good for my resume :-D

        • Alright, sir. If you’re up for it and feel like you have the equipment then it’s all yours.

  2. Deal! I am still in. I will be there with bells on. I arrive Thursday. Looking forward to helping out.

    • Awesome. Thank you.

  3. I’d be glad to head to the lobby to help with the stuffin’. Like Andrea, I’ll be there Thursday (actually, I do believe we are roomies now?). Keep me busy on Friday so I don’t want to go site see and spend extra money ;)

  4. Hmm I’m bringing my wife along for the ride and she’s a photographer, I can ask her.

  5. Philip – I’ll be there Friday morning to help out with anything that needs to be done.

  6. Phil,

    I’m planing on bringing my camera, too; so I should have some pictures to share. :)

  7. I am not bringing my DSLR with me, but my point and shoot does a pretty nice job. (Plus, I can make anyone look very refreshed with editing.) I’m happy to share whatever photos I have.

  8. [...] is also probably a good time to consider becoming a #FinCon12 volunteer. It’s easy! We need a few people to help during the breakout sessions on Fri-Sun, and a [...]

  9. Philip,  I’m actually staying in Denver for a few days AFTER we’re finished.  Let me know if I can help with Sunday-afternoon cleanup.  Especially if I can blog about it.
