- 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
firstname.lastname@example.org. When you're supposed to be somewhere, be at that place, and don't
leave until you are released.

You are welcome to
wear costume pieces, such as feet, hands, ears, and tails as you

coverings so you can perform your functions more easily.

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!
