FanimeCon Departments Recruiting for 2014! - Archive
« on: October 19, 2013, 02:25:21 AM »

What is Dealers & Charity? Who are they, and what do they do?

Looking for pvcs, wigs, sentai swag and other cool stuff? Trying to find out where staff shirts are sold? How do we help out our partners like Make-A-Wish Foundation? If I lose something in the Dealers Hall how do I quickly get it back? The answers to all this and more can be found at your friendly FanimeCon Dealers Hall and Charity Departments.  You can find us located in Hall 1 & 2. You will be greeted with a friendly face and helped quickly and efficiently. Dealers is where you go to blow some dough. Charity is how FanimeCon gives back to the greater community. (Sorry no rhyme.)

What do I get for Staffing?
All "Staff" positions for FanimeCon are volunteer positions. We all donate our time to make this convention work, because we love it. The perks are limited, but often worthwhile if you have the right mindset.

A free Staff Badge, as long as you work your 24-hours. (Quicker badge pickup with customizable art)
A slightly discounted "Staff Room," as long as you room exclusively with convention staff and qualify for one.
Small amounts of swag. (2013 had con pins 2012 had backpacks or wristbands, 2011 had pencil bags.)
Service pins (Brag how long you've been making a difference pins currently for 1, 5, & 10 years of service)
The right to get a Staff Shirt. (vs. the attendee shirts)
A chance to "give back" to the Convention.
That warm-fuzzy feeling you get when you coordinate with other departments.
