PyCon US 2010 Needs Your Help!

Planning for PyCon US 2010 is in full swing but we are woefully short on officially filling staff positions! If you're interested, please sign up at http://us.pycon.org/2010/about/staff/ and be sure to join the PyCon US organizers mailing list: http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/pycon-organizers

In particular, we need to fill the Registration Manager role very soon as we're planning to open registration earlier this year than ever before. (More on that in a future posting!)

If you have any questions about any of the staff roles, feel free to ask on the organizers list or email any of the organizers individually!
