Volunteer Roles – Technical Support and Social Media 

Volunteering at MCN looks a little different this year than last. This year we are mainly seeking volunteers to provide technical support during the conference. Technical support volunteer placement will depend on your level of expertise with the online platforms we are using, enthusiasm for the position, and the ability to complete training. Technical support volunteers will run the MCN Slack help desk throughout the conference, so applicants will need to have experience with video conferencing in Zoom in order to help attendees resolve accessing and participating in events as well as experience using Slack.

Technical Support Volunteers will…

  • Be prepared to  work approximately 1-2 days during the conference. 
  • Attend  pre-conference online volunteer orientation and training.
  • Be online and present on MCN Slack during their assigned shifts to offer support to conference attendees.
  • Be responsible for monitoring several MCN Slack channels during their shifts, respond to questions efficiently, and escalate issues to the production team when needed.

In addition to technical support, we will be seeking  a small number of volunteers to help monitor social media and posting provided content as needed.  Please indicate on your application form if you are interested in being considered for the social media monitoring role.

Social Media Volunteers will…

  • Be prepared to work approximately 1-2 days during the conference. 
  • Attend pre-conference online volunteer orientation and training.
  • Be online and present on MCN social media platforms to monitor and post content as provided.
  • Communicate with MCN organizers and other volunteers via Slack. 

Volunteer Benefits

  • Free MCN 2021 VIRTUAL conference registration and a 1-year complimentary MCN membership.
