Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Rail~Volution 2018 in Pittsburgh, October 21-24. Volunteer sign up will open in June. This conference involves 1,200 – 1,500 professionals who share your dedication to transit, livability and communities. Your time and effort make this conference possible. While volunteering DOES NOT qualify you for free conference registration, there are a number of volunteer opportunities that allow you to earn time credits to attend some of (but not the entire) conference. Typically, volunteers help out in the following ways:
Local Host Table Staff
Volunteers who staff the Local Host Table get a t-shirt and the opportunity to meet a lot of friendly people who are committed to livable communities!
Volunteer Check in Table Assistant
Volunteers who serve as Volunteer Check in Table Assistants get a t-shirt and the opportunity to meet a lot of friendly volunteers!
Mobile Workshop Assistants
Volunteers who are Mobile Workshop Assistants (MWAs) get a free T-shirt. They are required to attend the Mobile Workshop (for free). Most Mobile Workshops (MW) require two volunteers.
Transit Ambassadors for the Leadership/Welcome Receptions:
Volunteers who serve as Welcome Reception Transit Ambassadors get to attend the reception after their shifts as well as a nifty T-shirt. We need volunteers at the conference hotel.
Volunteers who serve as Session Assistants may attend some sessions during the conference for free. They also get a T-shirt!
Pittsburgh Day (Wednesday, October 24, afternoon)
Volunteers who support Pittsburgh Day will get to attend this segment of the conference for free and get a T-shirt.
For over 20 years, Rail~Volution has been on a mission to build more livable communities with transit.
