Volunteering Information

Pacific Media Expo (PMX) will have two types of volunteers - “All-Convention” and “One Day” volunteers. Each type of volunteer has different benefits and responsibilities.

All-Convention Volunteers

Responsibilities: All-Con volunteers agree to work 16 hours over Pacific Media Expo including the day before and the day after.

Benefits: Two meals a day and a refund of their membership fee after the convention. There is also a limited amount of sleeping space. Volunteers must be pre-approved and space is assigned on a first come, first served basis until it is all allocated. Once you have submitted your request, please wait approximately ten(10) working days for a response.

One-Day Volunteers

Responsibilities: One-Day volunteers agree to work for 4 hours.

Benefits: Refund of their One-Day membership. In certain circumstances, senior volunteers may work one day and receive a refund for a different day. There are no food or crash space benefits. One-Day volunteers, do NOT need to pre-register. You may instead show up to the volunteer room with a completed version of this form as well as payment for a One-Day membership. One-Day volunteers may also roll their payment over to other days and volunteer for multiple days of the convention. This plan is ideal for people who have already made arrangements for sleeping space at the convention.

What does volunteering entail?

Volunteers sign up for two-hour shifts over the duration of their agreed work period. By varying your assignments, you can view the different parts of the convention. By focusing on one department, you can make new friends or learn the job well enough to staff in future years. When not working their shifts, volunteers are encouraged to enjoy the convention. All volunteers must be 18 years old or older as of midnight, May 27th, 2004 (I.D. will be checked).
