Melanie Herz, volunteers
Yes, Please? From the Chairman all the way down to the person behind the registration desk, we are all Volunteers. And, we need more fans to help bring the 2006 World Science Fiction Convention to life.
This is a great opportunity for you to see the convention (in a different way). FROM INSIDE! You'll still be free to mingle with writers, artists, publishers and other Science Fiction fans, but volunteering puts you at the center of the action, and makes you the person people look to to make their convention a rousing success. You'll make friends and make a difference.
Many different people have to work together to make the convention work. Special skills aren't needed, just a desire to help in the continuance of this proud tradition. So, please join us. Meet new friends and connect with old ones. Learn a new skill or show yours off. I will be happy to help you find the position that suits you.
Volunteers form ready for you to print out and mail to us. (PDF file, you may need Adobe Acrobat reader.)
The Worldcon is Big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is...
Sorry, got carried away there. But a Worldcon like L.A.con IV is a big operation, and needs a lot of volunteers for it to happen from the months of pre-planning right through the wrap-up, months after the official end of the convention.
Volunteers are needed for a wide variety of tasks: registration, checking for badges, crowd management at various functions, helping set up and tear down for the convention, displaying wares at the Art Auction, newsletter distribution, food preparation for the con suite, running errands and basically performing all the functions that keep things moving smoothly at the convention.
Volunteers do not need a special skill. They just need to have a desire to help in the continuance of a proud tradition that is known the world over as the World Science Fiction Convention. So please join us! Meet new friends and connect with old ones. Learn a new skill or show yours off. We will be happy to assist you in finding the right position to heighten your experience as a volunteer. If you have any questions or suggestions to help things run smoother don't hesitate to contact us.
Remember though that all volunteers need to have Attending Memberships for L.A.con IV, so send in for your membership early to get the lower rates.
