Benefits to volunteering include but are not limited to:
Free crash space- if you're 18 or older, work 6 hours per day, get a free place to sleep that night. This only applies to each specific person who works these hours, as we have limited space. You need to work the 6 hours each day that you'll want to use the room.
Rollover badge- work 16 hours total, get a free badge next year!!
LOVE AND ADORATION from DESPERATE STAFFERS who need YOUR HEROICALLY PROVIDED AID- <3 <3 <3
Also, a lot of staff starts out through volunteering- that's what I did! Get to know us and let us get to know you this way!
(sign-up sheet link removed as we'll be using a new sheet this next year) This form will let you let us know if you have any particular things you can do in particular- heavy lifting, working with tech stuff, etc.

If you think you are unable to do a job, say so. You do not have to do any job you do not think
you're capable of doing.
Notify someone so a replacement can be sent in your place.
Do not abandon your post. If you need a replacement, find someone with a radio to notify the Volunteers Department so a replacement can be sent.
If you do not know where a location/job is, ASK. We would rather have you know where you are going than have you be lost.
DRUGS/ALCOHOL/WEAPONS OF ANY KIND AT ANY TIME.
In Any Crash Space Room. What-So-Ever. This includes any and all weapons and/or replicas purchased from an Exhibitor.
(If I.R.T. would have a problem with the item in question, Volunteers has a problem with it.)
In order to acquire Crash Space you must put in 6 hours per day for each night you need.
Respect other people’s property as you would want yours respected in return. We are not
responsible for lost or stolen items. Any items you leave unattended in the room,
you do so at your own risk.
ONLY VOLUNTEERS are allowed in Crash Space Rooms. No Friends who are Not Volunteers in
Volunteers Crash Space.
You Must Leave an I.D. If you take a Room Key. (Only you can be the one to return a key for your I.D.)
Crash Space Rooms are and will be inspected multiple times daily.
That said....any questions?
