Volunteers
« on: August 25, 2015, 09:00:12 AM »
This is something we always say, but it is always true - we couldn't hold a successful convention without our volunteers.

Yes, it is a small group of individuals who spend months and months of planning and preparation for the convention, but it would all be for nothing if not for the hardworking band of volunteers who come forward to offer some of their valuable convention time to help ensure its success.

Much like the rolling credits at the end of a movie, it's amazing how many people usually end up getting involved, be it for a couple of hours only, or for the whole event. We never underestimate the valuable contribution our volunteers make.

We have a new buzzword for this year

RESPECT

We respect our volunteers for their help
Our volunteers are asked to respect their fellow attendees
The attendees are asked to respect the volunteers who do a great job in often stressful situations

Our volunteers will be wearing their snazzy lime green crew shirts so they are easy to spot should you be in need of assistance. Heads of departments will be in cyber pink shirts!

Link to the volunteer application form will be posted here when the form is live.

Depending on how much time you are willing to donate and what area you end up working, volunteering can be full-on but ultimately hugely enjoyable and a rewarding way to see another side to the convention. Plus you get an invite to the wrap party on the Sunday evening - our way of saying thanks.

The volunteer co-ordinator for The Homecoming is Candace Marbach who has done an incredible job at previous Gatecons. Candace will be responsible for scheduling volunteers subject to their availability and for making sure our volunteers are ok at all times. If you have a problem in making your designated shift please let Candace know.

To apply to join The Homecoming volunteer crew please go to the signup form at the Gatecon website: JOIN THE CREW

Thanks Dominique, it will likely be handy to have a volunteer who speaks French anyway as we tend to get quite a few attendees from France. I will let you know when the volunteer form is ready

I was wondering if the Stage crew was going to be day-glo or if they were going to get a more subdued color to blend in better. =)

Maybe.  Or - they can be bright and all the celeb guests can just make random comments about them being there.  (B/c you know they will.)
