*************UPDATE: Thank you for all of your submissions! The BlogHerEntrepreneurs '12 Call for Volunteers is now officially closed.****************
We want to make this year’s BlogHerEntrepreneurs Conference even better than last years, but we can’t do it without you- our volunteers! We have positions open in mic wrangling, live blogging or registration desk helper. Apply for a BlogHership today and you could get a free conference pass to BlogHerEntrepreneurs ’12 in Santa Clara, California!
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 $249 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 a myriad of 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 3, 2012 to apply.
Now for the Conference details:
When: March 22-23, 2012
Where: Citrix Executive Briefing Center, 4980 Great American Parkway, Santa Clara, CA 95054
See you in Santa Clara!!!
