Hi Rami,

Added our newest co-chair Markus to this thread as well. Markus- Rami is the overall volunteer coordinator.

In past years we've had 3 slots work out nicely for us, with the caveat that generally coverage for the third slot can be spotty and that's ok. 

This year since we have 3 co-chairs we should be fine even if we can't fill column 3. 

Green room description could read:

Green room staff help the Session Staff Chairs coordinate keeping the talks on schedule. 
They check in volunteers & speakers, keep an eye on the clock, use a walkie-talkie, and reassure speakers before their talk. 

One other note while you're changing the page/spreadsheet - could you change the description for the Session runner job to:

A Session Runner accompanies the speaker from the Speakers Lounge to the appropriate stage. They help in any way needed to make the session run smoothly. No running required.

I noticed that we have a lot more session chairs than runners so I am hoping a more accesible description could help with that.

Thanks for checking in,

Hey folks,

Just checking in about the green room volunteers this year -- is
http://bit.ly/PyCon2018-Volunteer-GreenRoom still an accurate count of
how many you'll need? Can we put any more useful info on
https://us.pycon.org/2018/about/volunteers/#green_room to get people
excited about it?

I'm just trying to get a handle on current priority to recruit more
volunteers for each area, and since green room typically requires
fewer but more involved / experienced staff, I wanted to check in to
see what we could do.
