Responsibilities include assisting our attendees at pass pick up, front-facing brand awareness and attendee interaction as well as lending a hand in our set-up breakdown of the venue on the final day of #SMWLDN.
We are various volunteer opportunities available for individuals who are interested in providing coverage and capture of the conference via the SMW social and news channels.
Roles and responsibilities include sitting in on main stage and academy sessions and live tweeting the conference. Also, sitting with our transcription service, Thisten, to ensure the automated transcriptions are kept fairly accurate of both main stage and academy sessions.
Programming Logistics centers around ensuring a flawless conference production for our stages. The staff is expected to learn the intricacies of the SMWLDN stage schedule and will facilitate the session and speaker flows.
Show Runners are mainly responsible for ensuring all sessions run on time and that presentations and all audio/video elements run smoothly. This position will require some remote work prior to the conference week.

Speaker Prep Managers and Speaker Liaisons work closely with our speakers at the conference, making sure they are where they need to be and prepping them properly for their sessions.
