A con is nothing without volunteers and JordanCon is no different. Volunteers are part of what makes the con run so smoothly, and you can be one. I know what you are thinking. “If I volunteer I will miss out on all the fun stuff.” But guess what, you won’t!!
Volunteer shifts are only 90 minutes (the length of a panel). Plus volunteer sign up doesn’t start until 3 days AFTER the schedule for Jordancon is released. This gives you a chance to look over the schedule, decide which panels you just can’t miss and when you have time to volunteer.
Now you may be wondering, “What can I even volunteer for? It is my first time at JordanCon.” Well, volunteering is a great way to meet people and get a real feel for the con.
You can volunteer to help with the Art Show, the ConSuite (That is where you go to get food. We will do a post about that later.), Registration, the JordanCon Store, or be on stand by for your selected period of time.
And there are other perks besides getting to meet people. You get an awesome Ribbon (or badge swag, as I like to call it). You also get to participate in an exclusive raffle for some pretty cool items. (I won two Wheel of Time graphic novels.)
Important things to remember:
- Volunteer Shifts are only 90 minutes each
- You get to choose where you volunteer
- You can sign up for as many or as few shifts as you like
- You get a ribbon
- You get to participate in an exclusive raffle
- Check the JordanCon Schedule to figure out when you can volunteer
And most importantly
- You can volunteer AND have a great time at JordanCon
