This is the discussion and email group for conference volunteers. Please join this group if you sign up to volunteer, as we will use it to send important announcements out to all volunteers.

A HUGE and special thanks to you volunteers for the conference! Here are some final notes that you will want to keep handy during the conference:

  •  Please come into the volunteer and presenter "lounge" room 30 minutes before your sessions begin. The link to the room is HERE. From the lounge a volunteer coordinator will assign you to moderate a specific upcoming session. You will use the hidden page listed below to get the moderator link to enter your assigned room. If you find you are having any difficulties, you can keep your assigned room open and also open the lounge room to ask for help.
  • The times you signed up to volunteer can be seen on the "SESSIONS AND SCHEDULE" page for your time zone, toward the bottom of the page.
  • IMPORTANT: The private page that lists the moderator/presenter links for each session is HERE.  This page is just for moderators and presenters, so please DO NOT SHARE IT as we do not want any participants entering session rooms as moderators.
  • You can still sign up for volunteer times slots during the conference HERE. We've had a great response to the conference, and so could really use as much help as you can give--please consider signing up for multiple sessions!
  • The schedule, information, and recordings for the training for presenters and volunteer moderators are HERE.
  • Please continue to let people know about this free conference! There are badges, logos, and sample email text for you to use HERE (and below). Thank you!

Debbie Faires is our Volunteer Coordinator--hurrah for Debbie!

Update: October 2

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

Thanks to you, we're making good progress but we still need more green!


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.

2) Practice.
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-

Debbie Faires
