Volunteer Information Meeting May 18th

Are you interested in volunteering at AnimeIowa 2013? Then you may be interested in joining us at the Volunteer Information Meeting. The meeting will take place May 18th, 2013 at 4 p.m. at the Coralville Marriott Hotel and Convention Center. All the project leaders will be on hand to talk about their various departments, give you an idea of what their department does and what they need volunteers for! If you’ve thought about volunteering and just weren’t sure that it was for you, this meeting will give you a chance to actually talk to the staff and find out what kinds of jobs you can do. You don’t have to be a certain age to volunteer, nor do you need to have prior volunteer experience.

Volunteers are the blood of this convention. We can’t run Anime Iowa without you. This meeting is NOT mandatory. If you can not make the meeting, that’s perfectly fine. Just come visit the merry band of volunteer staff in the volunteer booth!

For more information be sure to check out the Volunteers page or the Volunteer thread on the forum. If you have any questions or simply want to express your interest in Volunteering, simply email volunteers@animeiowa.com.
