More info about the volunteer positions for 2017:

Mic wrangler

Movers and shakers, apply here! Mic wranglers will need to maneuver through rooms to deliver the microphone to attendees who want to make their voices heard. This task is especially important because it also affects audio recordings, so you'll need to be able to move about the room quickly during a session. This position requires the ability to stand for long periods of time.

The estimated time commitment for mic wranglers is 3.5 hours per day.

Registration desk helper

This job is more than just being a friendly face—registration desk helpers have the critical task of coordinating check-in for attendees, providing badges, answering questions, and being a general know-it-all (or at least knowing where to find the answers). Experience with Mac and iPad is a plus. This position requires the ability to sit behind a counter for long stretches of time.

The estimated time commitment for registration desk volunteers is 3.5 hours per day.

Tote bag area helper

Who doesn't love to see the friendly faces at the swag bag table? Tote bag area volunteers will be distributing bags to all attendees and sponsors at a designated area in the conference space. Light lifting, moving, and unpacking of boxes is required for this position.

The estimated time commitment for the tote bag area helpers is 4 hours per day.

Live tweeter

Are you capable of live tweeting a session? This position entails quickly constructing sound bites of what the speakers are saying in 140 characters or less and tweeting them, using the #BlogHer17 hashtag, and potentially a session-specific hashtag. Live tweeters must use their own wifi-enabled laptops or phones. You must tweet the session as it plays out, not summarize or editorialize the discussion between panelists and attendees, or send tweets after the fact.

The estimated time commitment for live tweeters is 3.5 hours per day.

Floater

For those willing to help wherever they're needed (bless you), the estimated time commitment is 3.5 hours per day.

If you are interested in volunteering, don't wait. You have until Monday, November 28* to apply to volunteer. We will notify you by December 2 if you have been selected.

*Any request received after November 28 will be placed on the wait list.
