Volunteer for Oktoberfest (NOW CLOSED)


As of June 28, 2019, we have accepted all the volunteers that Oktoberfest 2o19 requires. We are now full. We do not need a wait list. We thank the SCBWI community for being so expedient in stepping up for this conference! 


If you would like to volunteer for future events, or for a more important role within our region, please contact your Co-RAs, Lisa and Shells, through the region website. Volunteers are what keeps our region moving smoothly! Thank you so much!



We need many helpers on the day of the conference to pull off an awesome event!

Want to give back to SCBWI?

Be a part of our incredible bi-annual conference?

Meet other volunteers?

Mingle with faculty after the conference?

What are you waiting for?  Sign on today by emailing our Volunteer Coordinator, Kamela Portuges.


Special Benefit for our Volunteers!

A Volunteer Social will take place at 5:15 p.m. in The Marriott San Ramon Bar and Patio!

If you are a conference volunteer, we invite you to join us for a unique opportunity to interact, relax, and meet the faculty. A drink ticket will be provided as our way of saying thank you for giving back to SCBWI.

Don’t miss out. Helping out is fun, rewarding, and essential to the success of our event. We couldn’t run our region without the dedication of people like you.
