We love our volunteers! Without volunteers, there is no convention! It is that simple. We are always looking for volunteers to help teach other people games. If you have a game you love, please come and teach others, if you want to learn a new game, we will work with you on getting you one if you want to teach it. We try to get a good share of the most promising games to play with people at our conventions. We are also looking for library volunteers. We have a great library and need volunteers to run it. It is a lot of fun… and our library is huge, with over 1,000 games on site (and more off site people can request ahead of time). *If you want to help with RPGs, please go to that section since RPGs GMs are a special category of volunteer.
We are also need some coordinators. Coordinators attend a couple of meetings several months leading up to the convention and then coordinate their area during the convention. It can be a lot of work, but it is a lot of fun! We are looking for the following:
- Cosplay Coordinator for Saturday evening event
- Assistant RPG Coordinator
- Assistant Miniatures Coordinator
- LARPing Coordinator
- Charities Volunteer
- Marketing Co-Coordinator
- Meetup Coordinator
- Game Designer Events Coordinator
So what are the rewards for being a volunteer? Our conventions do not do the traditional trading volunteering time for discounting badges. We find that some people only volunteer to get a reduced badge and are often not enthusiastic or motivated. We like to reward our volunteers throughout the convention. At a previous event we held, volunteers were able to pick out a free T-shirt from one of the vendors, we gave out games, and volunteers (depending on time helping) got meals, drinks, and convention T-Shirts. Our volunteers come back every year so we must be doing something right! Please contact Chris at email@example.com if you are interested in volunteering or being a coordinator. We know you will have fun, we do!
