Policies

  • Timeliness: You will report to the volunteer head for your scheduled time. We will be depending on you for the success of the convention, so dependability is key. Please please please, let us know as far in advance as possible if your availability changes- you can get in touch with the volunteer head or email volunteer@anthroweekendutah.org. When you're supposed to be somewhere, be at that place, and don't leave until you are released.
  • Dress: Use common sense and wear respectable clothing, as you are representing Anthro Weekend Utah. A good rule of thumb is pants or shorts in good shape. As with all public areas of the con, keep it PG. If what you are wearing is deemed innapropriate, you may be asked to change.
    You are welcome to wear costume pieces, such as feet, hands, ears, and tails as you volunteer; we only ask that you refrain from wearing any full-face coverings so you can perform your functions more easily.
  • Conduct: Please be respectful and dependable. You are the face of the con, and crucial to its success. You should be kind and courteous to hotel staff and con attendees, and listen to the Volunteer leader and the Con Chairs. You must obey the convention rules as well.
  • That's it! Thank you for volunteering, and welcome aboard!
