PLEASE NOTE, if you are accepted as an GAMMA.CON volunteer YOU WILL NOT BE REQUIRED TO PURCHASE A TICKET.
Volunteers must work at least a 4 hour shift and will be able to participate in all things the convention is offering when not working.
If you have any problems or questions, contact the Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
The event times are 3rd & 4th August 2019, at EPIC (Exhibition Park In Canberra), From 10am - 5pm for the day and 7pm - Midnight for @night on the Saturday and from 10am to 5 pm on the Sunday.Please note: you may also be required for setup and pack down outside these hours.
The times listed are rough estimates and not necessarily representative of the period you will be working. If you volunteer please make sure you have the time needed to work the event booked out ahead of time.PLEASE check your inbox and spam filters for our emails to make sure you get your responses and rosters.
You will need to attend at a set up shift time or arrive before the event opens by at least 40 - 60 minutes so you can take part in a walk through and briefing of the event and important details.
Additionally we will be having 2 briefing nights before the event that you should attend. These will be held at the "Harmonie German Club of Canberra" 49 Jerrabomberra Avenue Narrabundah on the nights of the 24th and 25th of July from 6:30 pm each night.
IF YOU ARE AVAILABLE TO WORK ANYTIME OVER THE WEEKEND, PLEASE ONLY SELECT 'ANYTIME!'.
No! All volunteers will be given a free pass for the day! We will however, keep very close attention to who does and doesn't show up to their shifts. Those found deliberately ignoring their shifts in order to obtain a free pass will be removed from the convention. Those found to not be doing their shifts and otherwise ignoring their shifts will also face potential removal from the event.
* When and how will we find out if we have been accepted?
Applicants are to be notified by email within 2 weeks after you have applied so be sure to check those inboxes and spam filters and that you gave us the right address.
*I have not received an email/response yet am I still needed?
Please make sure to check you spam filters and that you gave us an address on the form we can reach as we have had some issues with emails getting sent to spam filters or wrong emails before. As for if you are still needed unless you are contacted and told you are not needed to volunteer assume you are still needed and have the days and times you selected free so as to attend and help us make this event bigger and better.
* What do we get for volunteering?
All volunteers will be provided with a free pass to the event, a free T-Shirt, lunch/food options on the day, early access to the convention as well as great memories and other cool perks.
* What happens if something comes up and I can no longer volunteer?
If for whatever reason you are accepted as a volunteer and then something comes up which prevents you from volunteering at GAMMA.CON, just tell us prior to the event and we will sort it out, not an issue.
* I'm also doing X, Y & Z role at GAMMA.CON can I volunteer?
It depends, for example ceremonies team members are welcome to volunteer as their work shouldn't overlap with volunteering, but running a tournament in games would leave you with little time for anything else.
* I still have more questions!
