Registration has open staff slots! We're the second largest dept in the convention with 85 staff and one of the most interactive places as you're the first staff they see before going into the convention! So if you're a people person this is the department for you!

We are pirates. We have a flag, a ship, and a large crew! ARRRR

3-4 hour long shifts once or twice a day.
Flexible hours - we will let you go see your favorite panel, event, etc. (as long as we aren't short on staff at the time and it's not excessive.)
Extremely friendly staff! Reg is more like a large group of friends working together rather than a large staff just doing a job.
Rooming is available but we will give priority to those who don't need a room. Rooms are staff only, you will be roomed with registration staff but attendees are not allowed in the room at any time.
Your badge is free and first year staff get 2 comps to hand out to 1friend/1family or both family. (anyone found taking advantage of this and not going to their shifts - your badge and the comps are removed and you may be banned from the convention.)
Throughout the year we have parties and picnics. Staff are active!
This is an awesome chance to meet new people, make friends and learn the inner working of Anime Central!
Volunteering for a non for profit organization looks AWESOME on a resume and we will be a reference if you need us to be. (you must work 1 convention to put ACen on your resume as a reference)

We're looking for outgoing people with cashiering skills, data entry skills, and who are just all around awesome! If you don't have skills in cashiering or data entry we can teach you :)

Registration times for staff begin at 11am on Thursday with training at noon. If you make it to an office training session it begins at 3pm Thursday and ends 4pm Sunday.

You must be 18 and older to apply.

Please email Registration@ACen.org with- (cut out the red font when turning this in) Jessica Nelson (FaithfulJello) is my Assist. Dept Head of Staffing and will be doing interviews with those who apply within the next 2 weeks.

Name - (you need a valid ID with your name, photo, etc on it to receive your staff badge at con)
Age -
Years you've attended ACen - (this is just for reference, it has no bearing on if we select you)
Why you want to become staff - (please give more than a few words :) This does have a baring on if we select you)
Do you need rooming -
Will you be available from Thursday 11am to Sunday 4pm? - (For some we do accept Friday as we know it's sometimes hard to get off work for Thursday but we can only accept this for a handful of people since Thursday we need staff :) )

We can't wait to go through your applications and add some awesome folks to our crew!

If you have any questions please feel free to pm me or faithfuljello, email them in, or even post here :)

Dreamgirl staff need to work a total of 24 hours through the convention. This is a convention policy, not reg >.< You can be a gofer though which is almost like staff but less hours :) Staff need to be able to work from Thursday (friday for special cases) to sunday. Sorry :(

Gofers are equally as awesome and don't have to commit that much time.

I'm fairly certain that you can request to do some Registration tasks such as monitor the lines and assist the cashiers with whatever they need. Gofers are always a huge help and you can see the sides of the convention that you usually would never get to see otherwise.

there's a thread in this same section (I think) that gives you the low down on becoming a gofer. If you're ever bored between panels or something, stop into the gofer hole and get acquainted. :)

We'll keep this thread open for registration questions though - Mods I apologize if I derailed off topic a little too far. (Lenne don't hurt me (too much) please :( )
Go ahead and stop by my website: My Site

If someone wants to volunteer, they don't fully fit reg requirements but you see an opportunity for another department or section I say go for it :D

I've wanted to work reg for the past couple of years, and now that I'm finally 18 I have to take care of my school's anime club group that's going. :c

Do you guys ship the badges from the office near the Northeast Harper building still? [I think that's where last year's return address was.] I'd love to help send out badges next year if I can!
When should I ask about helping mail if I'm qualified?

I want to work Reg next year as well! I'm definitely signing up as soon as I can.

I'd sign up this year, but with Masq and all I'm not sure if I could do both, and I'm already committed to Masquerade.

You can send in applications any time of the year, I've hired right up to 2 days before con. Since my staff is so large I constantly have people coming and going because of school, military, family, etc. Our office is located in Prospect Heights. Next years mailing is going to be done on a different schedule so I can't answer that until we hammer it out.

We just had 2 more leave due to family issues. Send in your apps! If we don't fill up on staff I'm going to have to cut stations and that's going to mean longer lines >.< If you're debating joining staff now is the time to decide :D Reg rocks :D!

No we really need the staffers, every staffer we lose because they can no longer attend puts the pressure on Bloo on who goes where.
