The executives and staff would like to thank everyone who came to AnimeIowa 2013!
Attendance was again high, and once again everyone demonstrated what great bunch of people we have coming to this convention. Your maturity and honesty is truly welcomed and we appreciate your willingness to work with our staff as they do their best to ensure a safe and fun environment for everyone.
We learned many lessons this year and intend to implement new policies, tweak some existing ones, and generally come up with better ways to do some things. Again, we thank you for your honest feedback and want to ensure you that we are indeed listening! If you haven’t done so already,
please take a few moments and fill out an online feedback form or comment on the feedback sections of our forum. You will definitely be heard, so
be honest and respectful.
Next year will be even better! We’re already working on signing up guests and discussing programming ideas. Look for information on the forums as it comes available, and remember to give us feedback!
On a final note, it is demonstrated year after year that the convention cannot be successful without competent staff. We are always looking for people who bring their own talents to our group, and if you would like to help us out by being a staff member then please let us know! Look for an announcement of the first staff meeting and come join us.
Thank you all again for attending and we hope to see you all back next year!

AnimeIowa 2013 IS ALMOST HERE!!!…..and it’s time to plan for AnimeIowa 2013 Pre-Con Setup. This is one of the days (other than Sunday) you can earn double hours for prizes within the volunteers booth. Prizes such as pre-reg for 2014, entrance into the recharge room, and more!
The Volunteer meeting will be at The Coralville Marriott Lobby (unless directed otherwise) Thursday July 25th, 2013 at 11:00am sharp. At that time the storage truck will be leaving the Coralville Marriott to go to the storage locker. If you can make it before then you’ll get a ride or directions on how to get to the storage locker. If you want to help unload the storage truck when it gets back, try to be there by noon, or 12:30. Volunteer jobs are first come, first serve and setup will go on as long as it needs to.
If you would like to know more, see and reply to the Setup Volunteer forum topic, watch this information youtube video, or email email@example.com. See you at AnimeIowa 2013!
