WordCamp Europe opens Call for Volunteers

After very successful WordCamp Europe this year in Vienna, Austria, we’re preparing the next one in Paris, France, happening from 15–17 June 2017. The one in Vienna was the largest WordCamp in the world welcoming almost 2000 attendees, that came from 68 countries – just amazing.

Everything mentioned wouldn’t be possible without volunteers. Last year 160 people volunteered to make WordCamp Europe as accessible to everyone as possible, because – every person matters. As WordCamp Europe 2017 in Paris will be even bigger, we will need a giant volunteer team for 2017. Our Call for Volunteers opened yesterday and we need your help.

Being a volunteer is a rewarding and fulfilling experience. It gives you the opportunity to meet and speak with attendees from all over the world, help out with speakers and much more. And volunteering is important because without you, the volunteers, WordCamp Europe couldn’t be as accessible as it is. As with WordPress who democratized publishing, allowing everyone to publish within minutes, WordCamps are the way we meet people and learn new things.

Become a volunteer at WordCamp Europe 2017!

On October 5th, WordCamp Orlando’s 2016 venue was issued to shut down by officials at The University of Central Florida due to the threat of Hurricane Matthew.
