Each year we rely on a wonderful group of volunteers to help us make our conference environment warm and welcoming for all attendees. Volunteers work alongside the best minds in online journalism, and revel in the satisfaction of pulling off one of the best events in the industry.

Selected applicants will receive complimentary registration to ONA22.

We’ll have more information in June about volunteering roles available, but we plan to have a number of fun ways that you can help make our conference a success. If you’re interested in staying up to date on volunteer opportunities, you can sign up on to the conference newsletter to be notified when we open applications.

Frequently Asked Questions

What volunteer roles will be available this year?

We are working to build a set of creative and meaningful volunteer opportunities, and will have more information to share in June.

Do volunteers receive a pass to ONA22?

Yes, each of our volunteers will receive one complimentary, non-transferable registration to attend ONA22.

I have already volunteered at several ONA conferences, what does this mean for my chances of getting selected again?

We’ll accept applications on a rolling basis this year.

Are volunteers able to attend educational sessions?

Volunteers are more than welcome to attend sessions and events outside of your scheduled volunteer hours. Some volunteer shifts also require you to tune in to a session as part of your responsibilities.

Am I guaranteed a spot on the volunteer team?

We will evaluate volunteer applications on a rolling basis, and once all shifts are filled we’ll move applicants to a waitlist.
