Are you itching to go to BlogHer '12, but money is a little too tight? Sign up to be a volunteer today and if accepted you will receive a complimentary pass!
Every year we strive to give you the best possible conference -- one that tops last year and the year before! This year we want to do the same, but we need your help. Volunteer as a mic wrangler or registration desk helper and you will not only be helping us make a great conference, but you will also get a free pass! Apply here for your BlogHership.
What is a BlogHership, you ask? BlogHerships are a way for people who cannot afford the conference pass to a BlogHer event to still attend. BlogHerships are always volunteer positions at the conferences. If we are asking for a significant amount of your time, effort or elbow grease to get something done at the conference, then we will compensate you with a full conference pass. All BlogHerships are designed to cover the $198 registration fee only, and do not include travel expenses.
Read more about the various volunteer positions below.
Mic Wranglers: 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. The estimated time commitment is two sessions (2.5 hours) per day.
Registration Desk Helpers: This job encompasses more than being a friendly face -– Registration Desk Helpers have the critical task of coordinating check-in for 4,000 attendees, providing badges, tote bags and maps, answering myriad questions and being a general know-it-all (or at least knowing where to find the answers). The estimated time commitment is three (3) hours per day.
If you are interested in a BlogHership, don’t delay; you have until January 31, 2012 to apply.
Now for the Conference details:
When: August 2-4, 2012
Where: Hilton New York- 1335 Avenue of the Americas, New York, New York 10019
Book your hotel now! We have a special rate at the Hilton New York for our VIB (very important bloggers).
See you in New York!!!
