Pre-Con day is Friday, October 19, 2018. Volunteers are encouraged to come to the venue to receive training, assist with setup and to familiarize themselves with the venue layout. Volunteers are also able to pick their schedules on this day.
Post-con day is Monday October 22, 2018. Volunteers are also encouraged to assist with clean up. Clean-up can start as early Sunday, October 21, 2018 evening.
All volunteers must wear their name badge while in the convention center or while working any pre-con events.
Volunteers are not permitted to bring minor children with them during their shift, unless there is another person present at the con who can care for the child.
Floor volunteers are not allowed to carry cameras or take photos while on duty.
Volunteer shirts are to be worn during the work shift at all times. They are not to be worn inside the event after your shift ends, but they are yours to keep after the event.
All volunteers should wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Please refrain from wearing torn or dirty clothing or open-toed shoes. Comfortable walking shoes are best, as most volunteers will be doing a lot of standing and/or walking.
We ask all volunteers to act in the best interest of VikingsCon by respecting attendees, fellow volunteers and staff, as well as promoting a safe and healthy environment.
Volunteers must refrain from any deliberate acts that may create a dangerous or unhealthy situation during the show. This includes, but is not limited to, the use of illegal drugs, consumption of alcoholic beverages and assaulting, threatening or disregarding the safety of an individual. Anyone who might be under the influence or is exhibiting dangerous or risky behavior, will be reported to security immediately.
Volunteers are not permitted to use their volunteer status to promote or conduct personal business. Anyone caught doing so will be escorted off the premises and have their badge revoked.
The Green Room is OFF LIMITS to all volunteers, EXCEPT the Green Room Assistant. If you are escorting a celebrity guest to the Green Room, your duties end at the door.
All volunteers should be prepared to tackle any task given to them by VikingsCon Staff, but you will not be asked to do anything that you can’t or don’t want to handle.
