How Do I Join?
If you have an interest in becoming a volunteer please apply to be a volunteer at http://www.myfwa.com and click on the “Apply to Staff or Volunteer” option on the dashboard. It is the green smiley face, because our volunteers are awesome.
As a volunteer, you are welcome to work as many hours as you can contribute. If you put in 40 hours (load and load out count double time), you can then be eligible to join as a staff member the following year. As a volunteer or staff, there are lots of perks but once you hit 40 hours, your next year’s badge is comp’ed.
Please list your areas of interest in the order of preference and we’ll try our best to match you up with where you want to be!
Hospitality: Got a burning need to know what it is those God Level furries are up to? Volunteer with hospitality and you’ll be able to help out with the consuites! Duties may include: keeping things clean, fetching ice, keeping the paparazzi out of the God Level Suites, and making sure the food doesn’t run out.
Animal Control: Got sharp eyes? Many areas of the convention are Badge Only and we’ll need YOU to make sure that everyone has an official FWA badge.
Dealer’s Den: Here we’ll need help setting up before the con and breaking down after the con.
Fursuit Games: In this section, we’ll need some help setting up and breaking down the games as well as monitoring them. And if you’re going to be bringing your camcorders and don’t mind videotaping those wacky fursuiters for us we’ll be much obliged!
Registration: Registration needs your help too! We’ll need some friendly furs here to help with printing and laminating during the con. It’s going to be busy work so don’t forget your game face!
Main Events: Getting our Main Events room set up before the convention, and striking it after the convention is no small task! You also get to work with some really cool people an equipment.
And many others….
