Get Involved

We couldn’t pull this event off every year without the help and input of the community. From helping curate panels to volunteering on-site, there are lots of ways to get involved in the Netroots Nation planning process.

Host Committee
Local to Chicago? Serve on our locals organizing committee! Each year we rely on input from local activists and organizations to help us pinpoint issues to highlight, plan service projects or direct actions, do community outreach and navigate logistical concerns. We’d love to have your input this year.

Panel Selection Committees
Did you know that the community helps choose our panels and trainings each year? Proposals are broken up by issue area or topic and reviewed by committees of community members like you. Each committee will score 20-40 submissions (generally, a 3-4 hour time commitment). You’ll have about one week to read and score the submissions that we assign to you.

Panel submission/selection for 2024 will open in January 2024.

Volunteering at Netroots Nation is a great way to meet other attendees—plus it’s a ton of fun! Volunteers help with a variety of tasks on-site, including staffing the registration desk, helping with set-up, and stuffing registration bags. Click here to sign up for our 2024 volunteer team.
