221B Con 2018 Volunteer Contract
Any person 18 years of age or older by 04/12/2018 can apply to be a volunteer at 221B Con.
We won’t be able to run the thing without your help. However, as with all things in life, there are a few rules. To sign up you must fill out the volunteer application on this website. We will let you know if your application has been approved and where and when we will need you. Please let us know when you would most like to be available for a panel, though we cannot promise that we will always be able to accommodate you. We will provide any training or instruction necessary for what you need to do, but if you have any specific talents, please let us know. If you can wire an entire auditorium in under 17 minutes, that would be awesome to know. You will be responsible for checking in with the volunteer heads (Cheryl Ingram and Taylor Blumeberg) upon your arrival at the convention.
Possible volunteer duties include, but are not limited to the following:
-Registration table assistance: This includes helping check in members and pass out badges.
-Line and crowd control: This includes monitoring lines and helping with crowd control.
-Friday convention setup: This includes helping to setup the Con.
-Sunday convention break down: This includes moving/carrying things and generally helping breakdown the Con.
-Room entry monitoring: This includes badge checking and line control for panels. You may be asked to count panel attendees so that we may abide by Fire Marshal regulations.
-Gophering: Fairly self-explanatory. You might have to go get and/or carry stuff.
-Con hospitality suite: you will monitor the hospitality suite under the supervision of the Homeless Network.
As a volunteer, you must agree to the following:
1. I promise to show up on time for my designated volunteer hours.
2. I promise to sign in and out with the appropriate coordinator.
3. I understand that if I do not fulfill the volunteer hours I agree to I will not be allowed to volunteer at future cons.
4. I understand that while I may wear a costume during my volunteer hours that it cannot unreasonably restrict my movement or otherwise prevent me from doing my work.
5. I understand that all regular con rules and regulations apply to volunteers.
Please keep in mind that 221B Con reserves the right to modify these rules and regulations at any time without prior notice and may deny any individual a volunteer assignment for any reason.
Submitting a volunteer registration form does not guarantee a volunteer assignment. *
