Are you good at writing? Enthusiastic about open data? A social media superstar? And attending IODC?
Then volunteer to help us advance the open data cause!
The main volunteer role is that of rapporteur. While it does require a small time commitment during the conference, we’re trying to organize volunteer roles so that it complements your existing plans.
Signing up to rapporteur involves:
o Taking high-level notes in a shared doc for approximately 1-3 conference panels or a pre-event.
o Supporting social media for the selected session such as blogging, Twitter, and Snapchat.
o Potentially: using your personal device to help live stream smaller sessions in coordination with the IODC social media team.
o Named recognition – everything you write/promote for social media is via your handles and publically attributed to you.
o A shout out in the conference report for your rapporteur role.
o You help capture the outcomes of the conference in a meaningful way and advance the field of open data.
o We’ll do our best to ensure when you sign up to rapporteur for sessions, it will be sessions you would have attended anyways.
Rapporteurs are really critical for a conference with the breadth of IODC – your role in capturing key outcomes from panels, sessions, and pre-events helps to share what happened with people who can’t attend, and also to shape how key themes are discussed at the conference.
