Thank you for taking an interest in being a part of our wonderful Anthro New England con staff! Our team is committed to giving our attendees the best experience possible. As such, we hold our staff to a very high standard.
ANE staff roles are volunteer positions, but there are rewards for being staff – read on to see what staffing a con entails as well as what benefits come along with the positions.
Please review the below information in full before submitting an application – it’s important you understand the full extent of what your role entails!
- Anthro New England staffers are held to a standard of behavior above our attendees. You must have a good attitude, be willing to work as part of a team, and be able to communicate!
- Anthro New England staffers are expected to work for a significant part of each day at the convention. Generally a minimum of eight hours per day is typical. Exceptions include those roles that put in similar hours before the convention.
- Prospective staff members should have a general idea of what position they feel they would fit in, even if that position is “general support person.”
- Prospective staff members should be prepared to attend online meetings ahead of the convention; we do not require that you attend every meeting, and meetings are not very frequent, but these are helpful to keep all staffers informed.
Being a staffer is a commitment and is not for everyone! Volunteer positions are always available if you still want to pitch in but would prefer a lower-commitment role. If you are interested, however, please peruse our open positions below!
Joining con staff definitely comes with benefits! All staff will receive the following perks:
- Con Staff T-Shirt
- Attendee Level Registration
- Other Perks (TBD)
In addition, Core Staff will receive:
- Staff Hotel Room Space (Shared with other staff)
- Additional Perks (TBD)
