As one of our valuable volunteers, we want you to be listed in the 2014 program, therefore, please submit your volunteer form by May 1st, 2014. The volunteer form will be closed at noon on Wednesday, June 11th. After this time, interested volunteers should contact the Volunteer Coordinator Amy O'Sullivan at 269.214.1257.

NOTE ON SHIFT SELECTION: WFF runs on a self-scheduling model for the May 23-June 16 shifts -- we have found this to work very well in the past. This means we do not schedule based on availability, but rather you are responsible for working ALL shifts selected below unless otherwise contacted. For the pre-festival office positions, or if there is a scheduling conflict, someone will contact you; otherwise please simply plan on showing up for the first shift you have indicated.

IMPORTANT: You will receive an email confirmation soon after submitting this form - please refer to this email for additional information and print or save for your records.

Please supply your contact information and the shifts you would like to work below. Fields in red are required. If for some reason, you are unable to complete this form online or have questions, please email or call Amy O'Sullivan at 269.214.1257 .
