Markster Con is looking for friendly wizards (or muggles) to volunteer on Nov. 18th. Volunteering does not mean you'll be busy doing your duties the whole time so you'll still be able to enjoy the event. We have several positions that don't require your entire evening so please consider volunteering. Doing so will help the event go over smoothly and will also get you a FREE TICKET, plus several other perks (free event t-shirt*, ticket to a future Markster Con event*, customized keepsake name-tag/lanyard – *denotes that certain perks are only available with specific tasks).
VOLUNTEER POSITIONS (currently available):
• Registration: Two shifts to pick from — will help register attendees with hand-held bar code scanners (provided by event organizers), distribute info. handouts and buttons and answer potential questions about the event by attendees.
• Set-Up or Tear-Down: Two shifts to pick from — will help set-up tent area, hang signage and clamp lights, set-up registration and other simple tasks (does NOT require heavy lifting or climbing ladders).
• Merchandise Sales: Two shifts to pick from — will help with event t-shirt sales & chocolate frog sales, as well as a few other simple tasks.
• Prefects (Group Leaders): Eight shifts to pick from — will carry a house banner and help lead house groups from bar to bar (i.e. cat wrangling) which can be done while enjoying the event yourself.
• House Letters (Calligraphists and Assistants): Two shifts to pick from — will either assist calligraphists or write names of attendees on Potter Pub Crawl Attendance Letters. NOTE: Assistant does not require knowledge of calligraphy, but calligraphy position does.
• Floaters: Two shifts to pick from — will help assist event organizers with crowd flow or other simple tasks needed at registration.
By VOLUNTEERING, you WILL GET a free ticket to the Potter Pub Crawl. If interested, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject heading "I want to volunteer for the Potter Pub Crawl" and we'll add you to a super-secret Facebook group where you can request an area to volunteer in. Don't delay as we expect volunteer positions to fill up quickly!
