Virtual Events

We need people who are willing to moderate virtual events. That means, starting the meeting, watching chat for presenters, helping with technical issues, and staying for the entire event. See the form below to sign up for the AV/Tech Committee. 

Cleaning

APEX gets pretty dusty without all the patter of kinky feet. We could sure use help keeping it clean. If you can spare an hour or two, let us know! See the form below to join the Operations and Logistics Committee

Get A Room! Monitors

Similar to being a DM, but on a much smaller scale.  You escort people to their rooms, hang out, watch scenes, and help to maintain our cleanliness standards.

The list below includes training opportunities, volunteer opportunities, and ways you can pitch in based on the time you have available.

Programming

Programming always needs bookers. Know some people? Have some ideas? We could sure use your help!  You can use the form below to join the Education, Social or Community Relations Committee, or you can just send us an idea on the Event Interest Survey.

New Member Orientation Team

APEX is committed to providing lots of quality orientations in 2022. With that goal in mind the New Member Orientation Team will be crucial to our success! An hour of our time creates successful new members, and helps each of us feel more responsible for our club.   Each month we will have a New Member Orientation Team Training. Please visit the APEX Calendar to find the training for this month, or email Amy@ArizonaPowerExchange.org


Door Training

Don’t forget…APEX has over 500 events each year when we are in full swing, and to accomplish this, we need Door Volunteers! There is a Basic Door Volunteer Training each month on rotating days, so we can accommodate the needs of volunteers. Door Volunteers are the front lines of our club, and you can be part of the “Mission Control” at APEX! Door Volunteers have at least one additional training opportunity each month, so that they can sharpen their skills and be the best versions of themselves! Please visit the APEX Calendar to find the training for this month, or email DoorCoordinator@ArizonaPowerExchange.org

DM Training

APEX has almost 100 play events each year! To maintain quality events, we need DM Volunteers! There is a Basic DM Volunteer Training each month or rotating days in order to accommodate everyone. DM Volunteers are a vital part of our club!  DMs also have at least one additional training each month in various skills so that we are constantly putting tools in the tool box! Please visit the APEX Calendar to find the training for this month, or email DMCoordinator@ArizonaPowerExchange.org

Minimum Time Commitment: (Single day commitments)

Pitch in when you come to the club

You can always clean up, grab a broom, take out the trash, bring ice, clean up the kitchen, straighten up the bathrooms while you’re in there, or just look for things needing done and do them. 🙂  Ask a volunteer to show you where things are!

Keep your eye on the APEX Group on Fetlife.com. There are often calls for spare hands to do big setups and other projects at the club!

Glass Cleaning: All the windows/doors at the front of the space need to be cleaned, and all of the mirrors need to be polished.
