WisCon is fast approaching, and we’re all fitting our schedules together trying to be twelve places at once, crying the familiar cry: “there are too many great panels!” But maybe you’ve got a suspicious gap in your schedule, or maybe you just need some downtime after digesting the great panel you just went to. Wouldn’t it be great if you could schedule in some time to help out at the con as easily as you can schedule which panels you want to see?
Okay, maybe that’s a bit much of a lead up. But we’re happy to announce that you can now schedule your volunteer shifts in Con Suite ahead of the con – no trying to remember while you’re there, no wondering if anyone needs volunteers at the times you’re free.
You can now view all the open Con Suite shifts and pick the time and the role that you’d prefer online. Want to count people so we have accurate numbers for next year? You can see when we need a Counter. Want to help serve food? Check out the Food Service shifts. Are you an introvert that wants to help but doesn’t want to handle the “hospitality” part of the hospitality suite? Help out with Food Prep, being an Annex Attendant, or Clean Up Crew. Want to spend the whole con enjoying panels and parties, but still want to help out? Food Prep and Tear Down volunteers will be working Friday morning and Monday afternoon. And all shifts list the physical abilities required of that shift.
To sign up, all you need to do is enter your name (this does not have to be your real name), and an email. If you have any problems getting signed up, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we can sign you up on your behalf.
