Interested in volunteering at FIRE 2022?

We'll post more info as we get closer to the event, but here's the basics:

We operate on a reimbursement basis. Volunteers register for the event ahead of time, and get reimbursed after the event based on the amount of time they contributed.


Curious about what might be involved?

Here are some job descriptions to give you an idea of what might be expected in various volunteer positions.



While working Registration your main job will be attendee check-in, however you may also be responsible for giving out event bags, checking waivers and other required paperwork, on-site merchandise sales, and on-site registrations. As everyone's official starting point of the event, the Registration desk gives people their first impression of FIRE and is often the go-to place for general event information. There's a lot going on here, but we do everything we can to make sure all our Registration volunteers have whatever they need to make sure that first impression is a friendly and welcoming one!

JustKaren will be your Registration Coordinator.



Vendor Room Assistant

As a Vendor Assistant you will be responsible for minor setup help (should not involve major lifting), coordinating coffee/food runs for the vendors, and may be needed to step in to assist a booth (if needed for breaks). 

Craig & MJ are your Vendor Coordinators (at the Cutting Edge booth).



Photo Lab Assistant

A basic familiarity with lighting and camera gear will come in handy. You will not be expected to take pictures for anyone, but if that is something you feel like you could do, please add it in as additional information on your application. Generally you'll be an extra set of hands to help the Photo Lab Coordinator (TheAnalyst) with whatever comes up, and should come at the job with a generally helpful and friendly attitude.



Presenter Assistant

As a Presenter Assistant you will be responsible for classroom setup needs, coordinating coffee/food runs for the presenters, and will need to be available by walkie for any random presenter needs.

LunaticBound and SenBound are your Presenter Coordinators.



Classroom Camera Operator

Each classroom will be equipped with a video camera, this camera is not going to record but what it captures will be displayed on a screen in the classroom. This will facilitate making sure that everyone in the room maximizes their opportunities to learn from our amazing Presenters. By letting people see the up-close and intricate techniques that they might otherwise miss sitting in the crowd, we hope to enhance engagement and take these sessions to the next level. The Classroom Camera Operator will operate these cameras. Minimum requirements are; ability to point a camera, zoom in with said camera and understand the classroom and class materials to make sure we capture what will help the students learn.




As a Dungeon Monitor your duties will include monitoring for safety in our dungeon spaces, ensuring adherence to dungeon rules, and some setup, including the moving of bondage frames at dungeon open and close. You will also need a rope cutter of some fashion for your shift and will need to be available for a DM training session.

Master Penguin is your head DM.




While working with Transportation, you will be responsible for transporting presenters between the airport and the hotel. A vehicle with space for multiple people and luggage is a plus, but we may have vehicles available to use if you only have a smaller car. This is often the first and last impression of our event and we want all of our presenters to feel like we’re glad they’re here!

We will also have a need for golf cart drivers!

We will have carts going from the event hotel entrance to the event space, as well as back and forth to the overflow hotel, and we'll need some awesome souls to keep them running!



Set Up/Tear Down

As part of Set Up and Tear Down, you will be responsible for setting up the space, breaking the equipment down, and moving it to and from the trucks. While this job has the perk of happening outside of general event times, you should be prepared to sweat and move the heavy things!
