I just updated the misti-con site.

Join here for information:


If you are angsting over getting a ticket, but know you are going to go.  There are some big volunteer opportunities.  They need people with a good understanding of fanfiction, fanart&crafts, and organizing, and selling.  So if you have more time than money, here you go.

I had applied to be a volunteer but never heard back. I enjoy and am pretty good at organizing

Write jon at his email address. These are for BIG volunteer jobs. I know you can handle that. =)

Thanks I might put you down as a reference

I think if you reveal your muggle day job, that will be highly impressive. XD

I took your advice and showed how my muggle job works for applying so cross fingers, I'll be there no matter what I look forward to it every year

Good Luck! Which one did you go for?

The Fanfiction one, since while I love SS/HG I generally read all aspects of fanfiction looking for quality and I mentioned my protocol background ect we'll see. If not I am happy to prefect again it's fun for me

They are going to have a gallery and they need someone to organize it. What I figure is you get folks to send in their art to the hotel, and you have to set up and display it, make sure it's labeled. You will also need to work with con security to make sure the arts and crafts do not grow legs and walk off. You would have to hand hold artists and tell them the process and handle their emails, tweets, phonecalls and what not. Additionally, you need to advert to artists in fandom. That's my guess. You may get a budget to handle. Does that help? The chairman of arts and crafts is a big job, you are the museum curator for con. =)

Adding, I guess the chairman of arts and crafts would also decide to have a craft show. =)

I understand. These are big jobs. You may want to volunteer to help that chairman though, setting up and adverting are short term things.

I would try for one of these, but I have been informed of new minions and their projects that I am responsible for organising. O_o. I don't think my project will be moving forward quickly at this rate.

You mean Job minions or you have a volunteer job at con already? =)
9th-Aug-2012 01:34 am (UTC)
I have job minions. Clay knows that I am willing to volunteer at the con, but I don't think I could do a Chairperson position justice.

I could, but I fear for my time due to my job is like drinking from a firehose at times and always when it is inconvient for fandom stuff. Also I would be required to....tweet, and do stuff with my wireless phone, and deal with the public, and be diplomatic, and deal with folks who will not read process because all they can do is handle a tweet. -sighs-

Just thinking about it gives me the herky jerky twitch. I am a great organizer, I am good at handling data, and I am really good at advertising, and I am very good about being a hard ass about deadlines. (think project manager- I am a very good planner) Some people do not like that about me, but I know myself well enough. I know what kind of hell my real life can be.

Exactly! I can be an excellent organiser, but non-fandom stuff tends to rugby tackle and kidnap me for long periods of time. I too don't tweet or anything else beyond Facebook and LJ as far as social media is concerned. And people skills? There is a reason I work in a laboratory instead of with patients...I have no patience. Dealing with undergrads is about as much as I can handle. I am twitchy at the moment because they are threatening to have me lecture for the med students. Med students in large groups make me stabby.

If only. :(

I weep. I could help with soooo much.
9th-Aug-2012 01:10 am (UTC)
Hugs. Hugs Hugs. I KNOW, oh how I KNOW you would be so qualified to handle this. Probably more than most.

I'm hoping there will be a craft faire! I have very recently, (as in about 2 hours ago) gotten back into jewelry making! LOL Trying to match stuff up in house colors currently!

Go to the misti con site, get on the forums and ask for a craft fair. The more folks wanting it the more likely it will happen. =)
