The Volunteer Director is an Executive Officer of Tallahassee Comic Con. Any decision made by the Volunteer Director is considered final. The other Tallahassee Comic Con Executive Officers will listen to any serious grievance, comments, or concerns any volunteer has with or about the Volunteer Director, but misuse of this may result in being barred from volunteering.
The convention does not enforce any formal dress code, but we ask that you not wear offensive or risque clothing. Some areas have higher dress code requirements, which you will be informed of if accepted into those areas. If you are provided a volunteer t-shirt or badge, we ask that you wear it during your volunteer shift(s).
No alcohol or use of illegal substances while volunteering. If you become intoxicated during your shift(s) or report for your shift(s) while intoxicated, you will be removed from our volunteer list, ejected from the convention, and barred from becoming a volunteer for not less than two years.
Try to be helpful and polite. You will be provided with a map, schedule and program so you can acquaint yourself with as much of the convention as possible. If all else fails, the Information Desk will have the answer, or they'll be able to make a referral.
Try to show up at least 5 minutes early for your shift. This allows time if you have to be briefed, and it's a lot less nerve-wracking to the person who's waiting for you to show up.
You will receive your volunteer badge either at a meeting prior to the convention, or it will be available for pickup at Volunteer Registration from 3 pm – 7 pm Friday, December 1st, and beginning at 8 am on Saturday, December 2nd and Sunday, December 3rd. If you will be arriving at a time when the Volunteer Registration booth will not be open, then you will need to make arrangements with the Volunteer Director to pick up your badge, or wait until such time as the Volunteer Registration booth is open to pick it up. DON'T LOSE YOUR BADGE!
While you're volunteering at the convention, you do not have special privileges. You don't get to skip lines or break general convention policies. When you're not on duty, you have exactly the same privileges as any other convention attendee.
Try to get enough to eat, enough sleep, and stay hydrated!
