We have gotten to a late start recruiting the volunteer staff specifically for the dance. With less than a month away we need to make a strong last minute effort to recruit people to come out and help us.
From FanimeCon Website:
“ Volunteers are always welcome and needed to join FanimeCon. Unlike staff, volunteers are not given a badge but rather required to buy a normal attendee convention badge first. Then, by working a certain number of hours per day, volunteers are paid back the price of their paid convention badge. In order to get a full weekend badge, a volunteer must work at least 20 hours. To get a day badge refunded, at least 5 hours must be worked in one day. The perks of being a volunteer don’t stop there either. Volunteers are granted flexible schedules and range of jobs they may be appointed to. If interested, email email@example.com
to sign-up early and get priority scheduling or stop by our volunteers’ room at the convention. Please note, reimbursements will be mailed out after the con.”
Dance Volunteer responsibilities:
Door Monitors will assist the Rover staff with checking for FanimeCon Badges and turning away restricted items. These volunteers will also help manage the entry line and maintain orderly exits. 2 will be required for the J Ballroom and 3 for the Market Room.
Dancefloor monitors assist the Rover staff with monitoring the dancefloor and escalating any security or facilities issue. These volunteers will help maintain a safe environment for all Con Members by acting as the eyes and ears of a limited Rover security staff. 5 to 10 will be needed for the J Ballroom Dancefloor and 2 for the Market Room Dancefloor.
Stage Monitors will act as the stage security guard protecting the performer (DJ), the stage, the stage equipment. Stage Monitors will escalate and issues immediately. Stage monitors positions are mainly filled by the DJ staff.
