Staff Openings

Welcome!

Thanks for being interested in joining our amazing staff of Furry Weekend Atlanta. From our commitment to Southern Hospitality, to making sure each attendee enjoys the con to it’s fullest, our staff reaps the benefits of being part of one of the fastest growing cons in the furry fandom!

Furry Weekend Atlanta is a complete volunteer operation, but that does not mean there are no rewards for being staff - keep reading to see what being on staff entails as well as what fringe benefits staff can receive. Oh and... staffing is blast and will introduce you to some new life long friends!

Staff Responsibilities

  • Furry Weekend Atlanta staffers must always display their very best Southern Hospitality. This means showing kindness, warmth, and welcoming of visitors to the event. This is a must. You should treat all guests like they are special, because without them we just won’t happen!
  • Furry Weekend Atlanta staffers must have a willingness to put in the time it takes to make their section and the con a whole a success!
  • Staff members should have a good idea as to where you want to work within the convention, even if it is as a "floater" or general-purpose staff member who goes from job to job as needed.
  • We do have meetings! Although we understand that not everyone can take their time out from life, we would love to see you attend!
  • Staff should be available to help set up and tear down their sections (and others) so the con can run smoothly. Although not necessary, arriving on Wednesday and or leaving on Monday to help setup/tear down goes a long way to making the con a success!

We are flexible! However if you don’t feel that you can contribute enough; we would still love to have you as a volunteer!
