Volunteer Positions

Virtual DJ Committee Members

We are forming a small group of people to support the process of recruiting, inviting and choosing DJs for our virtual events. If you are interested, we are seeking people passionate about DJs & music that have regularly participated in freestyle dances at camp, member dances, I-Opener or Ecstatic Dances that know who most of our amazing DJs are, and are part of the DNE community. If you have wanted to have input into who plays music at what time at our dances, this is your opportunity! We especially invite people of color or NGC members to inquire.
Please contact Michael today. We want to get started right away for our next event!

Registration Committee Members

This committee primarily meets from early spring through the start of camp, roughly bi-weekly, depending on need, for 1.5 hours each time. There would be email conversations related to policies. Some of the things we are currently looking at are registration options, incentives for new folk, guest policies (particularly for staff), customization guidelines, day-tripper possibilities, late fee policy clarification, and cancellation policy review. Lots of interesting projects!
