New Year, Next Steps: Volunteer Schedules and Video

The holidays are over and the SXSW Volunteer Calls will be here before you know it! There is a lot to know about volunteering for SXSW and we want you to be prepared to take on the volunteer calls like a pro! Here is are the details:

Local volunteers need to attend just one of the Volunteer Calls. Volunteers will meet with crew managers to find out more about crews, sign-up, and create a volunteer schedule. Take a look at both All Conference Crews and Music Festival Crews to see what opportunities might be a good fit.

Out of Town volunteers, don’t fret! If you complete your registration by January 6, you will receive crew information straight to your email on January 11. If you register to volunteer after January 6, Out of Town Volunteers will receive an email the 2nd week of February with information for those crews that still have availability.

SXSW 2017 Volunteer Calls
January 22, 2017
February 11, 2017
Austin Convention Center, Ballroom ABC
Between 3PM and 5PM

It is suggested that local volunteers attend at their earliest opportunity as crews will fill fast.

Out of Town Volunteers with completed registrations will be emailed crew sign-up information on January 11, 2017.

Now, be sure to check out the SXSW Pre-Volunteer Call video posted on this site. It will help you navigate the volunteer call process and insure you cruise through your crew sign-ups.
