ONA23 Volunteer Application

Thanks for your interest in volunteering at the Online News Association's conference. Volunteers make up an integral part of the overall attendees experience!


Each year, we look for team captains to help us lead our volunteer crews. This is a great opportunity for returning volunteers to continue to give back to the ONA community, helping us create a stellar experience for our dedicated volunteers and for every attendee. It may entail welcoming and orienting volunteers, managing a team, liaising with the ONA team, and more. Would like to be considered for a team captain role? If so, please check the box below.
What team captain roles are you most interested in? Check as many as you like. Note: We can't guarantee placements but we'll take your preferences into account as we are able. You'll be able to indicate your schedule availability on the next page. *
When did you previously volunteer for the conference? (Check all that apply) *
