WE NEED YOU!
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for AgamemCon IV. We need people to work in pretty much every department including, but not limited to: Registration, Publicity, Security, Operations, Programming, Con Suite, Gaming, and Masquerade.
We are looking for people to work both before and during the convention. As the con grows, so does the amount of preparation work that needs to go into it.
All new volunteers need to be paid members of AgamemCon IV, so remember to send in for your membership early to get the lower rates. The benefit to this is that you have two badges, one regular membership and one volunteer. So when you are off-duty, you can wear your regular badge without running the risk of "Hey, can you help out at reg. for 'a few minutes?' "
How much time is involved?
Though we don't have a minimum number of hours that you are "required" to work, we do ask that if you do volunteer (either before or during the con), you plan on putting in a "reasonable" amount of time. For example, at the con a shift would be no fewer then 3-4 hours. Of course, the more time you want to put in the better, but if you are only able to put in one shift per day, that's fine with us!
What's in it for me?
A very good question! Free stuff is always good, but since we don't know what, if any, stuff that we might get until right around the time of the con, it's hard to say. We can say however, that those who do volunteer will get first crack at anything we end up getting. In addition to that, those people who put in a total of 12 hours over the course of the con or beforehand (3 shifts of four hours, or whatever combination works best) will receive a full membership to AgamemCon V. You'll also have access to our Staff Lounge. This will be a separate room where you can go and relax, grab some quick snacks or a drink, and unwind while off-duty. And lastly, there's the sheer thrill and joy that come with working a con! We hope that will be enough to entice you to help.
