They’re outstanding members of the local community, hosting farmers markets, food truck festivals and supporting local food startups.

We’re excited to have such an awesome venue to celebrate with you all!

 

Call for Volunteers

The WordPress community is remarkably generous and talented. Many devote significant energies to make WordCamps incredible events for learning, networking and celebrating a passion for web publishing!

As WordCamp Phoenix rises from the ashes, it’s going to take a village.

This is your invitation — consider yourself asked: we need dependable hands to help WordCamp Phoenix take flight!

Our volunteers will:

  • Get an inside look at the planning stages of the conference.
  • Be an essential pillar of the event weekend.
  • Be on the ground, meeting WordCamp attendees from all over the world.
  • Receive exclusive, volunteer-only swag.
  • Have the immense appreciation of attendees and organizers!

We’ll do our best to fit the task to the person and make sure everyone can enjoy the WordCamp as well.

  • Swag bag assembly.
  • Coordinating lunchtime, small crowds and providing directions.
