Welcome to Newsletter #2. The Volunteer's registration form is now
online and anyone interested in working for WWW9 should fill it out and
submit as soon as possible.
Volunteers will be involved in helping to run the conference Network
and Audiovisual so we are looking for people with specific skills in these
areas. Positions will be limited so use the form to tell us as much as
you can about your qualifications. Please include a resume if you have
one as well. Before submitting a form make sure you read carefully the
other Newsletter and FAQ so you are aware of how the process works and
exactly what you are getting into.
Once again we will be offering scaled levels of participation,
you can sign up to work for Conference Registration, Accommodation and
Registration or Accommodation only. The number of hours required to work
for each level will be worked out shortly and you will be advised of what
your obligation will be when we notify you of your acceptance. The first
batch of acceptances will go out early November. If you are accepted you
will receive regular updates by email and you will be asked to submit an
information form to tell us about your work and accommodation preferences.
As the conference gets closer we will supply you with a roster
for the week. You will have an opportunity to advise us of the times that
you don't want to work so you will be able to attend the conference sessions
that you want to.
We try wherever possible to offer a flexible roster system to achieve
a balance between work commitments and experiencing the content of the
The Volunteer team for Amsterdam will be smaller than Toronto,
so Registrations are opening earlier than usual and will only be available
for a short time. The final team will be a mixture of new and experienced
volunteers with as many Amsterdam locals as possible. Local Volunteers
who dont need accommodation work fewer hours.
So keep checking this space for further newsletters and updates,
study the Conference Schedule as it becomes available and hurry and get
your registration form to us. If you have any questions, you can contact
me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
