2013 Volunteer Badges Application
« on: February 04, 2013, 10:35:58 AM »
I saw on the official cci facebook page that Volunteer applications have already opened up? I didn't receive that email, but I recieved the announcement of the badge sale on the 16th. Has anyone else had that problem? My husband didnt receive it either, neither of us opted out of emails(and yes I've checked both of our spam boxes)

Have you volunteered in the past for the show? That's who got the email, previous volunteers. New volunteers will have their day soon, but repeats get first shot.

Ah yes that makes sense why I didn't get the email, as I am a first timer for all of this :) I won't fret then!  :D

Thank you :) In general, how long after preapproved volunteer aps go out does it take for first time volunteers?

Also, do you think its possible the husband and I would both be picked or is that a gamble?

oh and one more, with those apps do they ask for experience with volunteering for other events or crowd control things? I have experience volunteering for warped tour and i did parade control at disney world...but i dont know if that would help my chances lol. i can hope right?

last year volunteer registration was before the first round of badge sales, but so far there's been no word about that. With Wondercon coming up soon, they may have new volunteer registration after the badge sales, but that would bring a flood of people signing up.

If you both are early registers to the volunteer pool, then you stand a good shot of both being accepted in, pretty sure it's "first come first served"

No experience necessary! You'll be given instructions as to what to do, and the area/group leaders are always wonderful people to work with and will answer any question that you have.

Awesome thanks! I will just keep my eyes open for an email from them for first time volunteers :)

If only one of you gets approved, msg me and I'll give you instructions on what to do next. Most likely if you reply as soon as you get the volunteer email, you will get in. Its a quick sign up process. I've volunteered before most recently last year and its awesome!! Good luck.

You'll need to log in to your Member ID first and then there's a small link on that page.
