Volunteer Compensation and Protocols

MisCon 33 Volunteers

Our volunteers are an important part of what makes MisCon a wonderful event.

Volunteer Rewards

Volunteers earn Cthulhu Cash in return for their help. Cthulhu Cash is considered to be the same as money during the convention and can be used throughout to purchase art or even items from independent vendors. Volunteers that go above and beyond are rewarded. A volunteer may earn $5 Cthulhu Cash after 4 hours of work and $5CC every 2 subsequent hours. The maximum amount that a volunteer can earn is $50CC. A volunteer may use this system to help towards next year's registration fee.

Cthulhu Cash can be picked up at the Volunteer/Info Table and is accepted in the Art Show, the Merchant Room, and Registration.

One Volunteer will be given a free pass to the next year's convention as well as an Award Certificate signed by the Guest(s) of Honor praising them for their services. They may even win a little convention swag!

Criteria to win this are based upon the following:

  • Total Time
  • Positive Attitude
  • Above and Beyond duties

Volunteer Protocols

  1. All volunteers must check in with the Volunteer Director or a member of the Volunteer Team at the Volunteer Table:
    1. Upon arrival at the convention to receive official schedules and other materials that may be necessary for their positions.
    2. Before and after all shifts.
    If a volunteer fails to check in and/or check out they will not be awarded the hours for that shift. This will seriously detract from total accumulated hours and may cause the volunteer to lose a chance at earning the Best Volunteer Certificate and its benefits.
  2. All volunteers will undergo evaluations. This will ensure that volunteers are properly rewarded for their services as well as establish foundations for volunteering at future conventions. It also enables the Volunteer Director to accurately place each volunteer in departments that suit their abilities and status.
