FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • What do volunteers do ?

    Sample duties at the convention can include:

     

    •     Badge entry check and clearance.
    •     Convention materials assembly.
    •     Specific panel, exhibit, and event assistance.
    •     Various inter-departmental delivery duties.
    •     Any and all tasks requiring extra hands to ensure that the convention is running smoothly.
  • Do I have to pay to be a volunteer ?

    Absolutely not. Volunteering requires no payment to become a volunteer.

  • Will volunteering cause me to miss all of the stuff I want to see and do?

    Our priority is to make sure you have fun at Animania even while you are a volunteer. You should not have to miss out on any event you want to go to. The Animania volunteer program staff will not make you miss out on anything due to volunteer work. That being said, there are minimum hours of volunteering you must meet to qualify for reimbursements and prizes. It is up to you to make sure you meet your required minimum hours of volunteer work.

  • Can I still cosplay while volunteering?

    Yes! You may cosplay while volunteering only if it doesn’t impede you from wearing the volunteers vest and performing your duties. However, while you are on duty, you are a representative of Animania and need to have a professional appearance.

  • I applied but I haven’t received a response. Does that mean I’m not accepted?

    Applications for volunteer positions are reviewed and responded to in bulk once the application period has closed. You will not receive a response before we review all the applications.

  • How long do volunteers have to volunteer for ?

    Volunteers must volunteer for a minimum of 8 hours.

Other Things a Volunteer Should Know

The MPEC is where all volunteer operations will be managed. This will be your home base as a volunteer. This is where all our meetings are held, where volunteers check in and out for shifts, eat, relax and store your belongings.

 

Meetings:

 

  •     There are two orientation meetings held for volunteers before the event. You must attend one of the orientation meetings. If you         can't make either of these meetings, please let our Volunteer Manager know. animaniawf@gmail.com
  •     There are also impromptu meetings. The exact times of these are last minute and are announced. Please keep your ears and eyes open for such meeting announcements while volunteering.

  • Free Pass (For Yourself) To attend Animania
