We are currently reformatting our benefits for 2015 Walk-in volunteering.
Walk-In Volunteers are those who purchased a convention badge that decide to help during the convention as a walk-in applicant.
Those who choose to walk-in volunteer will be held to the same guidelines and policies that the Crew and fellow con-goers are held to. Not everyone can just volunteer and there is a limited number that will be allowed to sign up for walk-in volunteering.
Volunteer Office is located on the first floor of the Waverly in the Boardroom.
Friday 1:00PM to 6:00PM
Saturday 10:00AM to 6:00PM
Sunday 10:00AM to 1:00PM
Q: How old do I need to be to be a Walk-In volunteer?
A: Walk-in Volunteers must be eighteen (18) or older at the time of the convention. We are not taking any one under the age of 18 anymore for legal liability. Must be able to verify your age with a valid form of identification. (i.e. valid drivers license)
Q: Do I need to purchase a special badge?
A: No, you just need a regular attendee badge. The number of days that you purchase is the amount of days that you are allowed to volunteer for. Becoming a volunteer does not mean that you can get a free pass to the remainder of the convention if you purchase a one day pass. 1 day pass = 1 day
A: Walk-in Volunteers are placed with Panda Support, no exceptions unless approved by a Department's Head Director in-person. Walk-In Volunteers will be paired with a Con Ops Crew member or Supervisor when sent on tasks.
A: Walk-in Volunteers are not allowed to possess prop weapons or weapons during their shifts. Lockers are available for those who need to store personal items while on-duty. Walk-in Volunteers are free to dress according to the dress code guidelines for the all convention attendees.
A: No good deed goes unrewarded. That's right. There are incentives for volunteering. The reward system is based on the number of hours you have worked. The minimum of eight hours (8) is required to receive basic incentives for time worked.
