  14. VOLUNTEERS IS LOOKING FOR A NEW STAFFER - IN A MANAGEMENT POSITION [ADH] We are a small department in the convention and one of the most interactive places - you get to see and deal with any department with out being a Staffer! We are Pony and Pokemon themed this year! *This makes the girls in the Department very Very VERY Happy!* An extremely friendly department, looking for an addition, an ADH who can handle a Management Position and keep The Volunteers Department Fun while getting the work done! We work very hard to keep this department going, running smoothly, with what little staff we have to work with. = ) Looking for an Adh to be the glue to keep it all together! Cos-play will not be allowed while you are on shift. (Feel free to do so when off shift) = ) Working in The Volunteers Department is a great opportunity to meet new people, make new friends, new staffers, new departments, and learn the inner workings of the Con itself... Volunteering for a non-for-profit organization looks awesome on a resume! We will be a reference upon request; however, you must work at least one full convention and be in good standing to put ACen on your resume as a reference. For more information please contact me at: Volunteers-departmenthead@ACen.org I am looking forward to adding an awesome new staffer to our Management Team!!! Hope to hear from you sooner, rather than later... = ) Angel Sickels Volunteers Department Head

You will get a personal response from Volunteers-departmenthead@ACen.org so you know your submission has been received. Thank you in advance and I can't wait to meet all of you!

  20. Volunteering!

    Ok, Carolyn! Looks like your doing a great job here! Thanks for all your help and all you do! It's nice to know the forums were in good hands when I couldn't be here. Keep up the good work! See ya'll soon!
  21. Volunteering!

    Let's clear some things up... (hope this helps) No one is actually a volunteer until they have filled out the sign up form in JFK and have been put into the computer by a Volunteer Staffer and has their age verified. You must be at least 16. Please, read the rule sheet & take a time card. Please turn in your time cards at the end of each day you work. Please, take a new time card the next day you work. If you really haven't heard from me yet, then that means I haven't heard from you = ) So yeah, you bet I want you to write me again! Please, send me your form! I wanna know about you guys before you get there! What are you good at, where would you guys like to volunteer at aka you are just fine sitting door for someone or you wanna get right in there and start carrying boxes to where ever they need to go. Or my personal favorite, I wanna run back and fourth all over con, As Many Times As I Can Getting As Much Stuff As I Can Done! Now that's an answer! = ) Remember, a lot of times, when your volunteering it shows that you care enough about con to want to help and if your in the right place aka a department that you like and they like you, there could always be a chance that they would want you to help staff their department next year. Keep that in mind too. I'm sorry, but I can not comp anyone's badge. It's been stated early on, that everyone who wants to volunteer should have a paid convention badge first. But we are more than welcome to have your friend sign up as a volunteer too after they do so! SO yeah, come on over to JFK once you guys have your badges! Sign up! Take a Time Card and we'll get you guys out there! Hours do not roll over to the next year. Also, you might have missed this, but we are bringing something special back. The Volunteer with the most hours award (this years hours only). Starting Thursday and going to Saturday Midnight. The office closes Saturday Midnight so be sure to get the time cards in, or the time will not count. Keep in mind, those who need crash space hours will get the time first, those are required where as trying for an award is extra on your part. Make Sense? If you need anything else cleared up, feel free to ask! You can write the Volunteers E-mail box directly or you can talk to the ADH here as well! Can't wait to meet everyone at Con! Don't forget to sleep (and I don't mean in the lobby) Seriously. If you don't have a room, let us know, we're here to help. = )
  22. Volunteering!

    C- I see where the confusion is, the "Badge Name" part is on our form. The "Volunteers Sign Up Form" that they will get when they walk into JFK to sign up (and the Rules sheet) I've been mailing out a copy to everyone that has filled out the ACen.org form. So they know what the rules are and what will be needed to sign up. So your right, it's not the ACen.org form, it's the Volunteers Sign up form that will ask them for both identification names. Thanks C! And sorry about the confuzzion! = )
  23. Volunteering!

    You already did write me about this directly. I do not understand why you put it on the forums as well. Your information is in correct. So I would like to clear it up before someone else reads it and thinks that is what they can do. You must pay for a Convention badge before being able to Volunteer. If you have not already purchased a badge and will be paying for it at ACen you must do so by going through the registration line. There will be no Convention Badges in JFK. JFK is where Volunteers Department Headquarters will be. JFK is where you go to sign up to be a volunteer for ACen. We have nothing to do with the purchasing process of a Convention Badge. Please, go to Registration first for a Convention Badge. For you directly, if you would like your skills and experience to be forwarded to a certain department, that can be done or they can be submitted by you yourself directly. Each department has their own e-mail addresses and can be reached there. This forum is mostly used for other volunteers to talk to other volunteers, talk to us, and for those who want to find out about volunteering in general. Each Department, usually, will not be here to read what is written, that is why I'm saying if you would like your info to go directly to a certain department, it can. Did that help any? Let me or the ADH know if you have any more questions. = ) We'll see you at Con! Let's make it a Great One!
