Volunteer Manager 2007 Introduction
« on: November 19, 2006, 05:18:33 pm »
Hi Everybody! My name is Valerie. Most everyone calls me Vallie.

As of yesterday, I am the Volunteer Manager for Kumoricon 2007.

Just to give you a little bit of information about my history with our con, I have been attending and involved with the con since 2004. I volunteered in 2004 and 2005. Last year, I worked as a staff grunt and panelist.

I am extremely excited for this next year, and for how many people are already interested in becoming involved. I've been going through the threads where people have already signed up, and I have been emailing, or PMing those of you who have already expressed interest in becoming a volunteer for 2007 to get to know you all better and find out what specific part of the con you'd like to be involved with, how many hours you'd like to put in, how much of your soul you're willing to sell, etc. I am also arranging a mailing list of sorts so that when one of our directors needs 10 volunteers on any given day before the con to stuff envelopes or help with street team, I can get that information out to you all and see if there's any takers. ^_^

I'm thinking of also arranging meetups during the year, possibly connected to the dates of con meetings, so that we can all get to know each other better outside of the internets. It'll be a lot more helpful for me to know you and for you to know me before the con.

If anyone has issues, question, comments, etc. you can pm me here on the board, or feel free to email me. My email address is valliegirl@gmail.com That email is also on my profile, and the PM's get sent directly to my email address. And it gets checked multiple times daily. Smile

If you wish to get involved, and you haven't yet signed up on the forums, please PM me the following information:

1) Full Name (real)
2) E-mail
3) Forum Name
4) Age
5) General Idea of what you'd like to help out with ie: Be Gopher, Watch Video Rooms, Stuff Envelopes, registration, info booth, etc.

Eventually, I plan on coming up with a list of all the positions we need filled for volunteers, and even a schedule once we've got some idea of what's happening in the con and when, so that we have some form of order to this.

Also, if you're reading this and you think you might want to be staff instead, AWESOME! Please contact one of the directors you'd like to work with and they can tell you what you need to do to get it official. If you don't know which director deals with what you want to do, ask me and I can point you in the right direction.

It's ok, Jaz, I understand ya fine.  :)

Cool.  Hey, does Chris have his own email address, because I've just been talking to him through yours.  *L*

If you could either pm or email it to me, that would be cool.  :)  If not that's cool.  I'll just keep sending messages through you.

Also, is he on the boards?  If he's not, tie him down and make him get a handle.  ^_^

I know a couple of people interested in helping guy out and I want to be able to give the people directly involved a way to contact Chris if need be.  :)

Thank you Jaz!  You're awesome.

How old do you have to be to volunteer without an adult. My brother will be 13 at the time of the con and he really wants to volunteer but he doesnt want to have to hang out with an adult.

*giggles*  I know you want to volunteer.  I've got you on my list, believe me the second I have work for someone to do I will be contacting you.  Unfortunately, other than street team stuff, which you're on the list for, I don't really have a lot of things for people to do right now.  Unless someone has a huge emergency where they need 5 people to do stuff asap, I don't forsee putting any of my volunteers to work until sometime in January.

What??  Wait??  What's happening in January??  

WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO KNOW!!!


MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Seriously though, once I need people to actually start doing stuff, everyone will know it.  Right now we're just in the stages of confirming that the people who said two months ago that they were interested, actually are.

You've gotten back to me on that, Yay, so you're cool.

I know it seems boring and dead right now.  Just wait until like July.  

You'll get used.  Oh yes, You'll get used.

^_^  

Edit:

I just went and checked Child Labor Laws for the state of Washington.  As Kumoricon must comply with all state laws, I'm currently putting the minimum age for volunteering at 14.  Unfortunately, that will mean that your brother won't be able to volunteer.

:(

Also, for those who are policy makers if you want to cite the minimum age as being higher, I'm willing to comply.  Just let me know.
