ABOUT SERIOUS PLAY CONFERENCE

Conference: Monday-Thursday, July 16-19, 2018

Each year we offer college and graduate students, teachers and professionals that would love to learn more about serious games but find it cost prohibitive on their budget the chance to come to the conference as volunteers.

Volunteers serve Serious Play Conference in several capacities:

  • Set up on Monday. We will be finishing and checking badges (something any of you local could do, and then be free of your volunteer responsibilities to go to sessions)
  • Registration desk (Early morning set up; answering questions; occasionally typing new badges or announcements; help at lunch; close down each night)
  • Room monitors (Encourage attendees to move into room as session is about to begin; keeping speakers on schedule)
  • Photography (We need 1-2 semi-professional photographers to shoot photos of sessions for posting for the following year)

Room Monitor Volunteers must help at least 2 full days of the conference. They are able to see most sessions, working around their assigned room duties and switching with other volunteers to work a favorite session.

Registration volunteers help each morning plus two lunch hours. Working on conference set up all day Monday frees registration volunteers to help only from 8 - 9 a.m. on Tuesday of the conference.

Photography volunteers only shoot at plenary sessions and whatever track they are following.

Everyone goes to the Plenary sessions.

In return for helping us, volunteers receive free registration. Our only charge is $40, to cover three lunches and coffee breaks. This charge is refundable up to 2 weeks before the conference, should your schedule change.
