Hello all

We're looking for extra hands to help with he smooth running of this year's Wikimania, so I and the rest of the team would be extremely grateful if any of you would consider giving a few hours of your time.

We will need volunteers to:

staff the registration desk, especially on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, when we expect to be at our busiest
    moderate/invigilate sessions
direct attendees around the venue, and between the venue and other points (eg tube stations and hotels)
    staff the information desk, assisting attendees with queries
    help with streaming/recording sessions.

That's a non-exhaustive list, but if any of those roles appeal to you, or if you're interested in helping in another capacity, please complete the form at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1dzXSoAnHF6StkBA2mKIklse6gZA6Uw-EIT2egTLC3ew/viewform or email me with any questions at ha...@wikimanialondon.org. Being an editor is not a prerequisite, so please do share this with anyone else you think might be interested.

For those of you in or around London (which I appreciate is a minority on this list), we are holding informal social events for volunteers in the weeks running up to Wikimania so that volunteers can get to know each other and get to know the the team, and these will be a great opportunity to learn more about Wikimania and get involved. These are scheduled for Sunday evenings: 22 June, 6 July, and 20 July (18:00-20:00); if there is significant demand, we may consider scheduling further events. If you'd like to come to any of these events, please let Harry know by email (ha...@wikimanialondon.org) or sign up on the wiki at https://wikimania2014.wikimedia.org/wiki/Volunteer_drinks.

Any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
