As the Chron reports, the two week long Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation “presummit”, which starts September 11 will see over 3,500 Cabinet-level ministers, ambassadors, private-sector executives and leaders of NGOs in the city. And you can be part of this historic meeting, as organizers are looking for about 200 people to volunteer.

According to the event’s posting on Volunteer Match, there are all sorts of glamorous jobs available, including roles in the “APEC Secretariat Documentation Center,” “Shuttles/Mini Coach Management,” and our favorite, “Prayer Rooms/Bilateral Rooms’ Monitor.”

You’ll need to pass a security screening, commit to “follow dress code and behavior guidelines,” and be willing to “arrive on time and treat the assignment with the importance it deserves,” says the listing.

Some meals and beverages will be provided though, as the Chron says, “you’ll probably be able to sneak an extra plateful or two from the innumerable buffets.”

In addition to the obvious perks of being part of something so historic, Secretary Clinton will be sending all volunteers a thank you letter, and “it’s a great thing to add to your resume and brag to your family and friends,” organizers say.
