Pacific Media Expo (PMX) will have two types of volunteers
- “All-Convention” and “One Day”
volunteers. Each type of volunteer has different benefits
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.
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
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).
How do I become a volunteer?
For One-Day volunteers, you can just show up at the
Volunteer Office on the day of the convention you wish

and membership ID #, please complete the PMX
