What is a door holder?
We say Door Holders instead of volunteers because volunteers can sound like people who randomly sign up and hopefully show up, while Door Holders take ownership and take great pleasure in opening a way for others to see and experience the Conference and our Community. Door Holders are the very core of our Community here at Converge Security Conference
