Treklanta 2015 Volunteer Information

Treklanta is committed to providing our attending membership with an outstanding convention experience as demonstrated by a commitment to unparalleled customer service.  To achieve this goal, our all-volunteer fan-run convention is organized into various operational departments.  Opportunities to volunteer for at-con staff are available in many of these departments.  If you are interested in volunteering for Treklanta, please read the entire Policies & Requirements section below.  Departments, department heads, contact information and currently available opportunities are also given below.
Policies & Requirements
Previous experience on another convention's volunteer staff is preferred but not required.  If you do not have any previous convention experience, we will be looking for some other type of experience, skill or especially strong interest in the department you wish to work for.
All volunteers are asked to pay a $10 staff registration fee to cover certain basic overhead expenses such as con badge, lanyard, program book, con suite, etc.

Volunteers can click the "Add to Cart" button to pay their staff fee, request a specific department and advise us of any special experience or skills they have which may be useful and helpful to the convention.  Payments may also be made by cash or check at any staff meeting.
Requested Department:
Any special experience/skills?
Treklanta staff volunteers are encouraged but not required to purchase an official Treklanta staff shirt, featuring the Treklanta logo embroidered in the upper left chest area of a collared, two-button pullover sport shirt.  These shirts are $30 each and MUST be purchased at least two weeks prior to the convention.  Please click the "Add to Cart" button to select your size and desired color.
Volunteer staff members will be expected to work approximately twenty hours during the convention, generally in four-hour shifts.  This requirement may vary from department to department depending on need.  Each department head determines his or her department's exact requirements.
