It’s that time of year again, when spring has sprung and every good TLG’s fancy turns to thoughts of the great fall convention that is Microsoft Ignite.

We wanted to take a minute and thank you all for your efforts at past Ignite conferences and other Learn on Demand Systems’ events, and remind you that the Ignite 2017 Call for Staff/Speakers application is now open.

We want to encourage you to apply this year as a Technical Learning Guide (TLG) for the Hands-on Labs area.

Here’s the link to the Call for Speaker/Staff Application:

Please be aware that filling out the application does not guarantee you a spot as a TLG or other Ignite staffer.   There is still a selection process that will take place.

Look WAAAAYYY down at the bottom of the application:

Please note: You select Yes or No as to whether you want to sign up as an HOL TLG or any of the other staffing choices. Remember that if you select anything besides TLG, you may not even get to the list of available HOL TLG staffers. Please consider carefully where you want to work at Ignite before submitting this application. Once you select Yes for a TLG and then select #1 as your level of preference.

In addition, please remember not to overload yourselves if you are applying as speaker and staff or for multiple roles at the event. We typically need TLGs for 16-18 hours on the floor during the 5-day event and we are looking for team members who are willing to commit to being there.

We have tried to include as many people who have worked with LODS in the past in some way here, but please forward this to any other MCTs, both current and alumni members, who you feel might want to join the team this year in Orlando.
