We appreciate your time is valuable, so happy for people to propose joint roles and will offer all volunteers a free pass to the conference. If you are interested please reach out directly to our EO Adam - firstname.lastname@example.org by 7 February 2020 with a brief summary of your experience in the above areas, and how you wish to support.
