Volunteering For Context

updated Nov. 15, 2013

Context can always use dependable helpers, both before the convention and during. One of the big before-con things we could use help with is in the area of promotion; we always need people to help distribute flyers and otherwise get the word out. And of course during the convention we always need people for the registration desk and gophering.

If you're interested in volunteering, please contact us at chair@contextsf.org.
