We’re so glad you’re interesting in volunteering for the ONA conference for the first time. It’s a great experience to not only help digital journalism, but also meet other volunteers and attendees. Make sure to read the details below before you apply.

Qualifications: A nice smile, a love of digital journalism (and journalists) and a firm commitment.

Volunteers work an eight to 10 hour shift — in return, you’ll get free and guaranteed registration to what has been a sold-out conference eight years running. There’s plenty of camaraderie, lots of sugar and caffeine, and reasonable hours that allow you time to network and take advantage of what’s at the conference. If you’re selected, positions will be assigned during the summer.

Application deadline: Monday, April 27, 11:59 p.m. ET
