Volunteering / Staffing

Donate Your Time

SNAFU-Con is run entirely by people who are donating their time and effort for the good of con.

If you're not interested in staffing, or volunteering, you can still help.

The most important thing you can do to help us is Register.
Tell your friends! Post a link to us to your deviant art, your facebook, your myspace, etc.
If you're a facebook user, become a fan, and invite all your friends to fan us as well.
We're looking for art to use. We will post a list of all donating artists with links to their deviant art (or other webpage).
Join our Forums! The forums need life. You can talk to us directly there, as most of the staff are members. Don't be shy, we welcome everyone to join and talk with us!


If you're interested in working with us more directly you can become a staff member or volunteer for the con.

Volunteer

Want to help out the con, but don't have the experience, or the desire to fill a staff position? Volunteers will get their registration fee refunded after working a minimum of 12 hours over the course of the 3-day convention. A volunteer can help with setup, tear-down, videoroom-sitting, registration desk, running panels, running a game in the tabletop area, and more. If you have a preference, our Volunteers Manager will try to place you where you'd like to be. We will also put pre-con advertising efforts with staff members towards your time (see next section). You must pay for your registration to volunteer. If you are interested in volunteering please email

Volunteers must fill out one of the following forms and hand it to a staff member before they will be allowed to volunteer.
Volunteer Contract Ages 18+
Volunteer Consent Form Ages 14-17

Pre-Con Advertising

We will be going to other conventions and anime events to try and bring in pre-registrations and spread the word about SNAFU con. If you would like to help with these efforts, we will count it towards your volunteer time. You may not even have to buy a badge if you put in all your hours before the con starts (easy to do)! If you are interested in volunteering please email .

Running Events

If you would like to run a panel or a game in the tabletop area, this can count towards your volunteering time.
To set up your panel, please email . To set up your game, please email .

After you've set up your panel or game, please also send an email to to ensure that your time is counted, thank you.

Staff

Do you desire more responsibility than the average volunteer? Do you have the drive to go out and get things done without a large amount of supervision? We are looking for staff members in almost every department. More information will be posted soon, but as we get going, keep a watch on the site for staff meetings, email to get on our staff email, and join the forums.

You can find Staff Policies here.

Too young?

No individual under 18 will be a staff member for the convention. However, if you are under 18, you may still volunteer with parental consent. Volunteers are welcome to attend staff meetings, and may be given assignments that will go towards their 10 hours.

Absolutely no minor under the age of 14 will be allowed to volunteer due to Nevada Labor Laws. Although it isn't exactly employment, we don't want to walk into any gray areas.

Minors ages 14-17 will be asked to have a release form signed by a parent or guardian before participating in any volunteer activities.
