Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Mizuumicon 4! We are looking for responsible individuals to assist the staff in various tasks.
To be eligible to volunteer you must:
* be at least 16 years old (photo ID required)
* have a pulse
*have a watch or other time telling device
*abide by the rules of the convention
*A sense of humor is optional but will overall add to the experience
Volunteers need to work the hours they commit to. If a problem comes up please let someone in charge know immediately. Any volunteer who does not work the required hours or fails to properly perform their duties at the convention risks having their volunteer badge pulled and being
barred from volunteering in the future.
Volunteers are required to attend an orientation meeting held before the convention. Orientation will include a run through the rules, any changes made from last year, and a tour of the campus. The time for said meeting will be determined by the end of this week.
We will accept Walk-On Volunteers at the convention on a case by case basis.
Below is a short list and brief description of some of the tasks
volunteers may perform:
Volunteers are needed to check the badges of convention attendees to make sure they are members and they are allowed in the area. This is needed for the Dealer/Artist Room, Main Events, and the Video Gaming Room.
Dealer/Artist Room Worker
Volunteers are required to help clean and maintain order in the Dealer/Artist Room as well as report problems that Dealers/Artist have to the head of the Dealer/Artist Room.
Volunteers are needed to help the registration staff hand out the information sheets and badges to the people registering for the convention. Volunteers will not be handling money.
We need volunteers on hand to help with whatever tasks arise. You may fill in for another volunteer who fails to show up or do some other task
that is required.
Set Up/Tear Down
We need a limited number of volunteers, to help move and set up Saturday morning, to help with tear down on Saturday night.
These volunteers must commit to a whole 4 hour block. By helping before and after the con, you will be free during the con.
These are just a small sampling of jobs that need to be filled, during the convention. Other duties will be assigned as the volunteer pool grows.
What is acceptable behavior for volunteers?
Volunteers are expected to conduct themselves in a courteous manner prior to, during, and after the convention due to the possibility that volunteers may be construed as representatives of Mizuumicon and by extension Our Lady of the Lake University. This includes participation in any online forums, chat rooms, or blogs.
How it works
Each job is assigned a time block (ie. Badge Checker is 6 hours). You must work all hours before your badge is upgraded to standard member badge. You may work it all at once or if the job leader of the area approves half it and work 2 smaller blocks. The only exception is Setup/Tear Down workers who work in there assigned Setup/Tear Down block.
For People working tear down, please note that failure to stay to do your work (leaving before tear-down occurs) will automatically have you blacklisted from Volunteering future Mizuumi-cons.
Once your work is done, your badge will be altered to show that you have finished and are now able to enjoy the convention at your leisure.
