Volunteers

Alabama Clay Conference Volunteers are the heart of the conference. In fact, the Clay Conference has no paid staff. We plan for a year or two in advance, refining ideas based on human and financial resources. By far, the human resources outpace the financial ones. We're all in this together because we love clay, fire, heat and everything else that melts, burns, and ultimately transforms, over and over again. Some have been around a long time and others are just beginning - everyone has a place here. Thank you for all you give and do.

 

How to Volunteer

Volunteer positions are limited, and we are opening them up first to those who volunteered last year.  If you are interested in volunteering, first you sign up online at SignUp Genius through the button at the bottom of this page. After you select the requisite hours and submit your information, we will email you a code to receive the appropriate reduced rate at registration.

 

Volunteers receive: 

half price registration for 5-11 hours
or
free registration* for 12+ hours  

*Food costs are bundled into all registrations, so we had to break it out here. All 12+ hour volunteers will pay $40 to help the Conference cover about half the cost, per-person, for meals, snacks, and receptions. Volunteers are invited to all meals!

 

SignUpGenius

Sign ups for volunteers will begin October 20, 2017
Stay tuned for opportunities: we will need your help!

Last year we had so much success with the SignUpGenius system that we will use it again this year. When you follow the link below, you'll select the the volunteer positions available and then follow the instructions on screen. Easy!

We have gone slightly upscale, and even have a real registration "booth" and we ask all volunteers to check in there upon arrival at the Conference Center, and we'll direct you to your positions. 

In order to get a reduced-cost or complimentary registration, you must commit to your shifts through SignUpGenius prior to registering for the conference.
