Thanks for taking interest in helping out Anime Crossroads. This page contains general requirements and guidelines for becoming a volunteer staff member.
Note: If you are an out-of-state volunteer, you are exempt from requirement #3. All other requirements and guidelines still apply. Please remember that you are responsible for your own accommodations and transportation during your stay at the convention.
There will be two separate sets of meetings, one will be early on and the other will be closer to the convention date. Remember that you must attend two (2) staff meetings, one from each set. The dates and times of these meetings will be announced beforehand so that you can plan accordingly. Also, all staff members are required to attend the pre-convention staff meeting held the day before the convention. If you are unable to attend a meeting, please notify the Staffing Director as soon as possible. You must be able to provide a legitimate reason for your absence.
KEEP IN CONTACT
Please remember that it is your responsibility to keep in contact with the Staffing Director and the Director of the department you are assigned to. Please contact the appropriate personnel if there are any changes in your status or if you have any questions or concerns (i.e., unable to attend a meeting, changing contact information, etc.). Also, check your e-mail inbox and the Anime Crossroads forums frequently – information and updates will be sent and posted regularly.
Anime Crossroads does not tolerate disrespect to anyone at all. Please treat everyone with respect and courtesy. It takes respect to get respect.
If you are 17 years and under, your parental guardian must complete a Parental Consent Form. These forms are available at staff meetings, or can be downloaded from the Anime Crossroads website (http://www.animecrossroads.com). Please print out the form and mail it to the Staffing Director when completed.
While there is no formal dress code, we do ask that you refrain from wearing attire that may be considered offensive or that could detract from your work performance. If you plan on cosplaying while working, please contact your department director to make sure it’s okay. Some departments may enforce their own dress code – please contact your department director for additional information.
We expect all staff to be available when assigned and ready to get to work. If you think you are going to be late, notify your department director as soon as possible. Try to arrive early enough to prepare for your shift.
BE HELPFUL AND FLEXIBLE
Always find out how you can be of additional help. There is always something to do, or some department that needs assistance. If you need something to do, and your department is covered, ask the Staffing Director about what you can do to help.
As part of security measures being taken at the convention, please make sure to check attendee badges at all times. Badges should be visible at all times. If you find someone without a badge, please kindly direct them to the Registration desk.
If you are unable to fulfill your duties for any reason please let your department director or Staffing Director know as soon as possible. If you are not working as assigned, you can and will be dismissed. Your badge will be removed and you will be asked to leave or pay the appropriate fees for your remaining attendance.
