Amplify@DF19: Call for Volunteers

It’s that time again. Dreamforce registration is live, hotel rooms are already sold out, and Salesforce marketing channels are really starting to buzz. 

The Amplify Board has been working diligently behind the scenes to ensure that our largest annual gathering, the Amplify@DF breakfast, will once again be a huge success. But we can’t do it alone! We need your energy, enthusiasm, and ideas to plan every aspect of the event, from T-shirt design to presentation content. Last year more than 20 volunteers made this event possible. 

We are now looking for Amplify enthusiasts to volunteer for the following roles:

  • Project Manager

  • Logo Designer

  • PR Manager

  • Day-of Volunteers

  • Committee Chairs

  • Committee members for the swag, decorations, program, and anxiety + mental health committees

We’ve included detailed job descriptions below. If you would like to take this opportunity to give back to our vibrant community, please fill out our volunteer application form by August 30th.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me directly at marisa@weareamplify.org.

Thank you!

Marisa
