Volunteer Compensation and Protocols

MisCon 31 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 food or even items from independent vendors.

A volunteer may use this system to help towards next year's registration fee.

A Cultist may earn up to 25% towards MisCon Preregistration. A High Cultist may earn up to 50% towards MisCon Preregistration. 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 Positions

  1. Acolyte: Children volunteers, Age 6-14
  2. Cultist: Baseline volunteers
  3. High Cultist: Super volunteers.
    • A High Cultist works a minimum of 10 hours, assists with either a) Thursday Set Up b) Monday Tear Down c) After Midnight Clean Up.
    • A High Cultist may earn up to 50% off next year's convention registration fee.

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 status of high cultist 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.
