Get Involved

Be a Volunteer. It’s fun. It’s Easy.


  •  Work a one hour shift to help campers find their way.
  •  Smile a lot.

Here are the areas where you can help:

Room MC’s

We have 4 spots for the day (one for each room and one alternate). These folks are responsible for:

  • Speaker introductions before sessions
  • Make Announcements
  • Help the speakers with lapel mics for the video
  • Start the video cameras recording.

All Day volunteer. Be part of the crew. This position is different from the others. You will work in the same session room for the full day. This is the position where your efforts will be seen by the whole world. All of the videos we record will become part of
No video experience needed. We will show you what to do which is basically – just push one button.

Registration Desk – 12 Spots (1 volunteer per session)

Help campers with registration, buying swag, and general conference questions like “Where is the restroom?” or “What’s the emergency plan in case of attack by bees?” *

Help Desk (a.k.a. Happiness Bar) – 22 Spots (2 per session)

Designers, developers, consultants and speakers – take a seat at the help desk to answer WordPress questions from campers and offer hands-on help with their sites. Think “Help! How do I make this widget work?” and not “Where is the restroom?”

* In case of attack by bees: Run Away

Submission Deadline in 12 Hours

We have 12 hours to go folks! The response has been solid and we’re looking forward to lining up some solid speakers for WordCamp Birmingham on October 29, 2016.

But there is still time for YOU to submit your idea or topic to present on for WordCamp. The form will stay live until midnight. So click over and read through the short sections about “What we look for…” and “Some suggested themes…” to get the creative juices flowing.

The WordPress community is a wonderful world full of folks who share their tips, tricks, knowledge and experiences. It’s a world that YOU are a part of. So come share what you know and meet some great folks.
