Arisia 2017 is looking for volunteer for the following staff position:
Arisia produces several publications, including the pocket program, souvenir book, restaurant guide, and at-con newsletters. Each of these has a person responsible for them, and we need someone to coordinate it all. You'd be keeping track of progress against timelines, helping publications get the information they need when they need it, and coordinating between publications that need the same information to help Arisia speak with one voice. This position requires good negotiation skills and attention to detail.
If interested in this position please email email@example.com
Position: Press Liaison
Responsibilities: Be "ON DUTY" for specific hours at the convention to Greet and orient any incoming press, supply them with the press packet, obtain relevant signed forms, and answer any questions they may have about Arisia or conventions. Volunteers should be somewhat outgoing and be able to speak clearly and professionally. It would be helpful to have someone with a number of years of experience with Arisia, to be able to answer questions. They will need to have a working cell phone at con.
Time: Shifts during con, to be determined.
Contact: Tanya Washburn, firstname.lastname@example.org

Time: Flexible shifts at con, training happens pre-con
