The important thing about volunteering is to be flexible! If you are also a PCamp attendee, we'll ask you to jump out to help in these areas as needed.
Facilities! Rearrange various rooms (tables, chairs), supply a fresh batch of dry-erase markers into certain rooms, and help hang directional signage throughout the building. Or clean up and reset everything if working the Saturday shift.
Hello! In general, you'll hang around the lobby. In the morning, be ready to check in our 200+ guests, then send them to the Vote Wall and breakfast. The rest of the day, be the smiling face of PCamp for anyone arriving/leaving and provide directions as needed.
Sherpa! As the name implies, you'll help guests navigate through the building, finding breakout session rooms, the Pavilion, or the restrooms.
Room President! You'll be stationed with a specific breakout room and keep it running smoothly throughout the day: helping speakers with materials or A/V challenges, stocking the room with water bottles, that sort of thing. We'd also like you to live-tweet great comments from the speakers in your room...so bring a device from which you can tweet!
What to wear Be comfortable (wear comfortable shoes). Wear nice jeans and when you arrive we will have a PCamp shirt ready for pickup. We are going to differentiate ourselves with red landyards. You'll wear these throughout the day so participants can find you if they need help.
What to bring Yourself mostly. You may also want to bring a tablet/phone to connect to the WiFi (the Paycor guest wifi for ProductCamp will be “Product_Camp” and it will not require a password. If you're a Paycor person, have your company laptop onsite...we may need these as a presentation backup plan. Also bring a great attitude ready to help make the 4th year of this event amazing.
Can I work more than my designated shift? Yes! Go for it. In fact, we hope you'll spend the day at PCamp to interact with the attendees and join the happy hour.
Do I get free food (or beer)? Yes! Grab a bite for breakfast and lunch or a drink at the happy hour.
Can I join a session that sounds interesting? If you're clearly not needed for volunteering duties, yes, dive right in. Don't leave your fellow volunteers hanging though.
What do I do if I need help? Find other volunteers that may be able to help (most of you are Paycor employees) or call Ryan Willging (513-236-3066).
What do I do if there is an emergency? Like a real emergency? Call 911. Then find or call Ryan. You can also get the security guard from the Front Desk. Be familiar with the Paycor HQ emergency info found on the COR.
