**********UPDATE: The BlogHer Food '12 Call for Volunteers is Now Closed************
Is your tummy rumbling for another BlogHer Food conference, but your bank account is a little thin this year? Sign up to volunteer for the conference and you could get a free admission and a very happy tummy! We need your help to make this years BlogHer Food as delicious as 2011. Sign up to be a Mic Wrangler, Registration Desk Helper or Live Blogger for your chance at a free admission into BlogHer Food '12 in Seattle, Washington in June!
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 $306.44 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 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.
LiveBloggers: Can you type quickly? Do you have a knack for remaining unbiased? In this position, volunteers will create an official record of assigned sessions for both attendees and non-attendees to reference. You must transcribe the session as it plays out, not summarize or editorialize the discussion between panelists and attendees. LiveBloggers must use their own wifi enabled laptops. The estimated time commitment is two sessions (2.5 hours) per day.
If you are interested in a BlogHership, don’t delay; you have until February 17, 2012 to apply.
Now for the Conference details:
When: June 8-9, 2012
Where: Fairmont Olympic Hotel, Seattle, Washington
See you in Seattle!!!
