If you like sports, here's our current "score" of presenters vs. assistants: 151 to 101. We need 50 more time slots filled by volunteers in order to have someone to help each presenter. Thanks to all who have filled over 100 spots!
Here's an updated chart that shows a green rectangle for each volunteer assistant and a blue rectangle for each presenter (times shown are Pacific Daylight Time GMT -7). Ideally, each line (except keynotes) would have an equal number of blue and green rectangles
We have particular need for volunteers in the following time slots:
8 and 9 am Pacific Daylight Time (GMT -7)
5 pm Pacific
3, 4, 5 am Pacific/ 8, 9, and 10pm Australia,Sydney (GMT +10)
1 pm Pacific
7 pm Pacific
Sign up for any times when you can assist.
1) Get trained.
Listen to a recording on the schedule page.
Login to our practice room as a moderator at any time and read the instructions, practice uploading slides, changing permissions, etc.
3) Stop by the volunteer lounge anytime to say hello or see what is currently needed. Our busiest time will be around 20 minutes before each hour that sessions are held.
Thanks to all-
