I know everyone is super eager to start signing up for their shifts and I am super ready for that madness to begin! I am waiting on some final approvals from the Leads on their shifts before I release the shift spreadsheet. You can expect sometime early next week for that to become available.
In the meantime, the Volunteer Form is up and running and everyone can start filling this out. As a reminder: you MUST fill this out before signing up for any shifts. If this form is not filled out, the leads will not be able to approve the shifts you request on the spreadsheet. PLEASE fill this out first!
Two new things that are changing this year:
We understand that volunteerism is a hot topic every year, and it will continue being a hot topic every year moving forward until we all die, I am sure! We know the system is not perfect and every year we try to get just a little bit better and adjust our behaviors based on prior experience. We appreciate your patience and understanding while we explore new ways of doing things.
If at any time you have questions, concerns, or need guidance on navigating your volunteer shifts; please do not hesitate to reach out to me or the lead of the department you are interested in volunteering in. Also feel free to check out the Volunteer Page for a little insight on what each position will entail. Please also try to be mindful that we ourselves are volunteers with jobs and responsibilities outside of this event and may not be able to answer in the immediate moment. However, we will do our best to answer questions as soon as possible. We value your efforts and know this event would not be able to happen without our volunteers!
