Agreement *
As part of being an AVCon volunteer, you will be required to attend ONE training seminar in order to be cleared to volunteer at the event. There will be multiple seminars to choose from on different days (of which you only need to attend one). Failure to attend will result in being removed from the volunteer pool. Dates/locations for the seminars will be announced at a future date, but will most likely be in the weeks leading up to the convention and will be in the Adelaide CBD. Attendance to one of these training seminars is non-negotiable as they are required for WHS and insurance purposes. A section of these seminars involve taking part in no pressure & fun team building exercises. We consider these a great way for you to break the ice and get to know your fellow volunteers, as well as a vital part of our overall team building process. Please be aware that it is compulsory that you attend the seminars and take part in activities.
Frequently Asked Questions (PLEASE READ)
Do I have to Purchase a ticket still?

No! All volunteers will be given a free pass for the weekend! 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.

When and how will we find out if we have been accepted?

Applicants are scheduled to be notified via email of the status of their application early May

What do we get for volunteering?

All volunteers will be provided with a free pass to the event, a free T-Shirt, lunch on the weekend, early access to the convention as well as great memories and other cool perks. ALSO, access to the exclusive AVCON STAFF ONLY AFTER PARTY!!!!

I'd like to know more info about each individual area at the convention, can I get some?

Sure, give this link a read: https://1drv.ms/w/s!AgHK20U4DogVh-4t_gXJgrYazhoMdw

Do I have to do anything before the convention to prepare?

Besides attend a seminar, not much. There may also be optional meet-ups and other fun events which you are encouraged to come to, but are not vital to volunteering at Avcon.

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 on Avcon weekend, 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 Avcon, can I volunteer?

It depends, for example ceremonies team members are welcome to volunteer as their work shouldn't overlap with volunteering, but maids wouldn't have the time. It's best to ask your relevant committee member first.

I still have more questions
