Volunteer

Interested in volunteering for Indie Memphis and the Indie Memphis Film Festival? We need your help to make this year our best yet! Just sign up via Shiftboard :)

Shiftboard Instructions:

Go to www.shiftboard.com/indiememphis

and register or login.

After you log in, you'll be greeted with a "Need Assistance?" pop-up window, from which you can select MyAccount to update your account info, MyTeams to review the current list of volunteer teams you’re signed up for, or Find Additional Teams to look for additional volunteer teams you might be interested in signing up for.  (If you’re feeling overwhelmed, you can also get help by choosing to Watch Videos, Read FAQ's, Search Help.)

You will only see shifts for teams you have joined, so be sure to look for other teams that might interest you. Select MyTeams (to see what you’re currently signed up for), then More Teams or Join Another Team – either will take you to a list of teams you haven’t yet joined. From there, click on a team to learn more about it, and select Add Me Now if you want to join that team.

After you’ve selected your teams, go to Calendar and peruse available shifts for teams you’ve joined. When you click on a shift, you’ll be able to read details in the column on the right – and choose to Take this Shift.

That should get you started, but Shiftboard is both fun and powerful – and we encourage you to explore and see what the system can do.

Confused? Need help signing up? Just email our volunteer coordinator Joanna Kelly at jkelly@memphischamber.com  and she'll help you get hooked up :)
