Your AA Manger for 2009
« on: November 09, 2008, 04:18:31 PM »
My name is Jennifer Cox and I am you AA manager for Kumoricon 2009. Most you here know me and I have talked with at one point or another (I was the artist last year with the painted wall scrolls if that helps). I thought I would take a moment to say a little about myself:

-I have been with Kumoricon since 2006 as an artist.
-I work as a part-time Editorial assistant and freelance artist
-Graduated from Portland State with a BA in Anthropology in 2006

I look forward to working everyone and making 2009 a fantastic year; one to be remembered (but not because things went down the chute...)

Registration for table spaces will be opening here soon. Once this is available, it will be announced. We are looking at offering both full tables and half-tables. I would like to know if people are needing power or not at their booths. Once I have a walk through and determine booth size and how many, I will have more information available for the public.

If you ever have any questions, comments or concerns please email me first at relations@kumoricon.org or you can PM me here at the forum. I should have a response to you within 24-36 hours. Please put in your subject "Artist Alley Question" "Artist Alley Rocks" or something in there about Artist Alley so I can reply in a timely manner.

Also, I will not accept bribes unless they involve something with dark chocolate, grenade launchers, and/or cute guys. ;)

I would like to leave you with a question and you can respond at will: What are your expectations for Artist Alley this year?

I like to make sure expectations are pretty straightforward..I show you mine and I hope in turn you show me yours...sorta speak. ;)

Seriously, Eric set a high standard when it comes to being a AA manager, so I hopefully can take some queues from that.

Great pun, even if unintended!

cues vs. queues i.e. long lines to wait in.....

Thank you for taking on the responsibility. I'm very happy we have an new AA manager.

The only things I expecting are exactly what you said, that we will be informed when AA opens and all inquiries will be dealt with in a timely manor. Oh, and that I'll have a great time, but that happens whenever anyone expresses any appreciation of what I do, so there's no worries there.

Oh snap, how awesome is this! An exciting change , considering not only have you always seemed so very level headed, but you've been to the Kumoricon AA enough to know what it's all about <3.

I will say that if I get a table, (and I'll be partnering up with Patches once again) we'd like power if at all possible.

My expectations:

The only thing that really matters to me is good solid communication. An AA coordinator doesn't have to offer water, or cookies, or hover around like a mother hen, all they have to do is be there for those who want help or have questions. Just someone who's mature, and an adult and can be neutral should anything serious arise. I have no doubt you'll handle everything quite well and I am inexplicably excited about you being the new AA manager! I'll be scouring the forums when tables open up ;).

aww, shucks, you're too nice.  :D

Thanks for your input. I did a walk through today with our awesome Facilities Liason, David. There are some electrical outputs, so there should be power at most tables. Keep in mind, nothing is set in stone at this time.

If can I have it my way (..nudge nudge), I am hoping to have at least one person(AA specific beyond just Yojimbo) on shift at all times to offer assistance and to make sure nothing blows up, sort of speak. I know how wild all you artists can get--  ;)
