Would you like to volunteer?

IW 2020 is going to be a staffed event. That being the case, we are taking on a very small set of volunteers this year to assist with instructor transportation, food runs, and venue clean-up. If you are interested in volunteering, please submit at volunteer request. Volunteer positions are not guaranteed based on interest. Priority is given to:

  • candidates that will stay the entire weekend (Friday morning to Monday afternoon);
  • candidates that can drive and will have access to a car;
  • local candidates.


Housing assistance

We do not provide help for out of town visitors to find housing. If you are looking for a host, Inspiration Weekend has a Facebook group with an active community that is often willing to help! Feel free to post about your housing needs.

If you are a local that is able to provide housing or are staying in a local hotel and would like to cut down on your weekend expenses, also consider offering housing assistance by posting on the Inspiration Weekend Facebook group!

For area hotels, please check the map on our hotels page.
