Title: ALL NEW - Member Services openings
Post by: kjayers on May 13, 2010, 08:03:39 am
Openings in the Secretary's department! 

Introducing (drum roll, please) The Member Services Office (MSO).

Ever have trouble getting down to the Merch table to pick up your staff shirt?  Now it's in the MSO!
Ever wonder where to find your staff badge? Now it's in the MSO*!
Cosplay need emergency repair?  Visit the MSO!
Suddenly wishing you'd packed band-aids?  MSO!
Con-goer needing more specialized attention than appropriate for Info Booth (considering the line of 20 people behind him/her)? Send them to the MSO.

But it doesn't run itself.  If you want to support your fellow staffers in a less-trafficked venue than Con Suite, consider signing up for Member Services.  We handle:
•   Incident Reports
•   Nurse Station
•   Cosplay Repair kits
•   Staff Swag handout (T-shirts, dog-tags, badges for non-prog, water bottles)
•   Info Booth Resource (back up materials in case some walk away)
•   Second Level Customer Assistance (being defined)

I'm looking for a manager, two assistant managers, and at least 3 staff.  Expect to commit at least 24 hours (not including load-in and load-out) over the course of Con-Thursday through Con-Tuesday in chunks of 4-6 hours.  More people means shorter shifts.

* Unless you report to Jaki, in which case, she has it.

Only question is, since I turn 16 in june would I be old enough?

There's a general meeting (http://www.kumoricon.org/forums/index.php?topic=12841.msg579788#msg579788) tomorrow in Beaverton.  You can introduce yourself to me (Jo, the Secretary).  It would be cool to come to the rest of the general meetings (see the calendar), and I'll probably have one meeting of just the MSO team in August to finalize the con schedule.

Sounds like an awesome position to have, but to far gone to make it to the meeting this early morning. :(

Last chance to register for staff is coming up quick!  The deadline is August 7.  You can still volunteer after that.  Contact me if you need help with your registration.  secretary@kumoricon.org
