Agile Coaching Retreat Leader and Volunteers

Retreat Leader 

Not just anyone can serve as a local volunteer team leader for an Agile Coaching Retreat. We’re looking for a unique level of experience and passion. Volunteering to lead a retreat requires a large time commitment.

Here are some things we look for in a successful ACR leader:

  • Must have initiative, drive, ambition, and willingness to commit a large chunk of time to the planning and execution of the retreat. 

  • Ability to do site visits, coordinate with venu manager with the contract, picking meeting rooms and menu options, managing attendee reservations, and ordering and storing supplies. 

  • Candidates need to have attended at least one previous Scrum Alliance Agile Coaching Retreat. 

  • Candidates should have event planning experience. 

  • It would be helpful if the candidate have participated as a coach at one or more Scrum Alliance Coaches Clinics. 

  • Successful candidates can document their experience supporting their local Agile/Scrum community, other volunteer experience, and a general attitude of “giving back” to our community. 

  • Preference is given to applicants who hold a Scrum Alliance Certified Enterprise Coach (CEC) or Scrum Alliance Certified Team Coach (CTC) certification, or can document their active journey toward an Guide-level coaching certification.

  • We’re also looking for volunteers who are willing to be open to funding personal travel expenses, if needed.

Retreat Volunteer 

Each retreat requires a volunteer team of 2-3 people to help with the logistics and planning of the event.

Here are some things we look for in volunteer: 

  • Should be local to the retreat location. 

  • You have a passion for the agile coaching community. 

  • Must have TIME to help. 

  • Detail oriented and ablity to see things through. 

  • Facilitation skills are a plus! 

  • Creativity is a plus (ability to create posters)!
