We honestly need all the help we can get for both. They take a lot of time, and the more hands the better really.

Arthur is in charge of operations and he's taking applications for that dept. I believe. You can email him at opsec@acen.org . Put Logistics in the title.

Hello! I'm interested in applying for a staffing position, but I need something entry level because I don't have a lot of useful prior experience. I'm flexible and a quick learner, though, so I can do just about anything needed.

I've already been considering EH and IRT, but...I'm also interested in Acen Kids. Is there somewhere I can go or someone I can talk to who has more information about the department?

Thanks~!

Setup/Teardown Crew!

This is not a department, but for those of you who are interested in volunteering to cover the cost of your badge, but don't want to miss a minute of anime-goodies during the convention, there's another option:

Sign up for the Setup / Teardown crew!
  • Do you like stylish TRAFFIC SIGN YELLOW volunteer shirts?
  • Are you good at putting things together while keeping all your fingers and toes intact?
  • Can you follow directions without biting Gendo?
  • Do you know where to GET SOAP?
  • Is creative use of Gaffer's tape a line item on your resume?
  • Can you push a dolly full of t-shirts across a public street with the help of two other dedicated volunteers and not impede traffic?
  • Do you have experience setting up AV equipment, computer equipment, or game consoles?
  • Do you NEED to be involved with Anime Central next year?


We NEED you, too! Sign up for two 8-hour blocks, or four 4-hour blocks of time among Thursday, Friday pre-con, and Sunday post-con, and your badge is on us!



hell yeah, I can totally be down with this, and I do enjoy setting up av equipment/computers/game consoles... and who doesn't like to push dollies across the street? ...so do I send a resume somewhere or something?

...also, who does the drawings of the ACEN characters shown on the books and badges? I'd like to throw my artistic talent into the fold. [not to say that the previous drawings were bad, but they definitely needed more polish]

Has anyone been in contact with the VG DH? I was talking to Chris about switching over to Video Gaming from EH about a month ago. He emailed me about setting up an interview time. I emailed him back twice but I haven't heard back from him since last month on the 10th.

His name on the forums is Kane. I know he checks here often, I spoke to him around Reactor on the froums. PM him here if not I'll see if I can find someone to do a check on him to make sure he's still alive and well <3

Also if you do get the change to VG PM and I'll change your staff title.

Volunteers have to request lodging ahead of time and I think that has already passed but I am not sure. How it works is first, obviously, you have to be on staff. Second you need to send in your request if you need a room. The rooms are not private and you will be staying with other staffers so keep that in mind. So thats basically it. Would any other staffer like to extend on this?

Looking back at my notes from the staff meetings, today is the deadline to submit housing requests, so unless you are already accepted on to staff, you're a bit late. First year staffers don't always get rooming, either, it all depends on your department and how many housing slots they have.

Oh and just to clarify, there's volunteers (we call 'em "gophers") and staff. The gophers do not get housing period. Since you said volunteers in your post I'm not sure if that's what you're thinking of.

There might still be time to get on staff for this year, I believe there's a handful of openings yet. Your best bet is to email chiefofstaff @ acen . org and express your interest.

Hope that helps!!

Gophers who works a certain number of hours get some crash space...which is really just a place to sleep and shower based on availability and such. But it's not a room itself, like staff members get (as there is a large difference in time required and responsibility between staff and gophers)

how early would one have to show up on thursday to volunteer and help set up? I'm interested in volunteering to set up, and I've had extensive experience in setting up equipment and basically being a roadie/techie. I'd like to know, so that I can see if I can make it to set up or not.
See me you may,
See me you not.
