Volunteers will need to sign up for a minimum of 4 hour slots. Volunteers can sign up for more than one slot and are encouraged to do so! 4+ hours of volunteer time gets you a free ME2 weekend pass!
The following are descriptions of duties for areas that need volunteers:
You will be wandering the hallways guiding lost souls to their panels, vendor hall, bathroom etc. You are the calm nestled in the chaos and excitement that is ME2. You know everything and are prepared for it all!
VENDOR, EXHIBITION & ENTRY AREAS –
You are the all mighty checkpoint of the “Take all my money!” and “That is so cool!” rooms . Guests must have a badge to get into our vendor hall and exhibition areas. A keen eye and a brave soul is suggested for this position. You will have to check all badges and be able to calmly and with a cool head deal with anyone trying to sneak in. We will also be limiting the access to the hotel to badge holders and hotel patrons.
We will have designated staff to take tickets and give badges but we all need a break now and then. You will be responsible for checking people in, giving them their appropriate badge(s), special class armbands, VIP seating assignments and handling money/credit cards as well. You are the gatekeeper of the con! Such power, don’t let it go to your head.
VIP ESCORT –
No, not that kind of escort, but we all want this spot. Who doesn’t want to hang out with a special guest for the weekend? However this is going to be a special assignment and limited volunteers will be considered. Escorts will need to be able to keep their cool in crowds, handle unruly fans if need be, make sure the VIP is where they need to be according to the schedule and make sure they are well taken care of. If you think you have what it takes please feel free to email us your information.
A dedicated team is on hand for security, The Kilted Henchmen if you were wondering. We all need a break now and then. You will be required to handle those situations no one wants to deal with, but you are also a shining beacon of “hey, this is a safe convention!”. You will be required to watch for badges, check/peace bond weapons, watch for anyone breaking any convention rules and all around peace keeper. This is a VERY limited selection process and will be considered on an individual basis.
