Volunteer

Ignite Tampa Bay is looking for some good volunteers! This event couldn’t happen without amazing people sharing their time and passion! Below are descriptions of the positions we need to fill. Let us know how you can help by getting in touch with us here.

There will be a Volunteer Orientation and Training scheduled approximately two weeks prior to the event.

  • Speaker Wranglers (2 needed)

    Ignite is all about the speakers. As a Speaker Wrangler, you’ll have the extremely important job of making sure the speakers are where they need to be when they need to be there and are ready to go when their talk is up. It’s kind of like babysitting if you’ve ever babysat a kid who only talks for five minutes at a time.

  • Runner (1 needed)

    These volunteers are like everyone’s favorite line in their job description, “Other duties as assigned.” You need to be quick on your feet and ready to tackle anything. If fulfilling requests like “I need a pen and a 15 pound block of ice! Stat!” sounds like fun, then this is the position for you.

  • Door People (4 needed)

    You’ll be the first smiling face that people see as they come into the venue. Say hi, stamp their hands, count them, and send them on their way to have a great night!

  • Floor Ushers (4 needed)

    Are you really good at Tetris? Have you ever wanted to see how efficiently you could seat people? Here’s your chance! You’ll help folks find seats and keep things moving. You’ll also help sponsors, speakers, and other volunteers find their assigned seats.

  • Sponsorship Assistant and Wrangler (1 needed)

    Help take care of our sponsors! Show them their seats and make sure they have everything they needed to have a great night.

  • Event Setup (2 needed)

    Can you help us get everything ready to make sure we are prompt and polished for the big event? If you adept at setup up banners, arranging chairs and generally getting things in order we need your help. Making sure everyone is ready to shine is hard work but rewarding too!

  • Social Media Rockstar (The more the merrier)

    Do you love to tweet, Facebook is your friend, and you can text like crazy? If you are an ace at social media we want you to help us promote our speakers, and tweet about them during the event. Keep our speakers in the spotlight and let the world know how awesome the event is and we’ll be forever grateful.
