Safety and Security Team Guidelines

We want every attendee to be comfortable at Anthro New England 2018, and that starts with creating a safe environment for all. These guidelines apply to the Safety and Security staff that make this possible.


Safety and Security Team Essentials

  • Safety and Security Team members help for 24 hours, spread throughout the convention
  • You will know your role and responsibilities in advance
  • You will know your schedule in advance

Once your Safety and Security Application is submitted, we’ll reach out to speak with you further. The safety of our attendees is incredibly important, so we interview each member of our Safety and Security team.

We know working on the Safety and Security team can be a demanding job, but we want you to love Anthro New England. Before the convention, we’ll work with you to schedule shifts. You’ll know exactly when you’ll be helping and when you’ll be free, so you can still have fun with friends.

Generally, shifts are scheduled in 8 hour blocks. You can expect your shifts to be scheduled sometime during the following times:

  • Thursday, Feb 22 — 4:00PM - 2:00AM
  • Friday, Feb 23 — 9:00AM - 2:00AM
  • Saturday, Feb 24 — 9:00AM - 2:00AM
  • Sunday, Feb 25 — 9:00AM - 7:00PM


We love to reward the members of the Safety and Security Team. For every 8 hour shift you volunteer, you’ll get two meals on the house. Work 24 hours and we’ll give you some sweet swag - including a convention shirt and free registration to the convention.
