Volunteers must complete the duties assigned to them during that shift and cannot break from their duties to attend a signing, panel or any other show attraction. SiouxperCon is depending on the diligence of the volunteer during those hours.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Dress comfortably, as you will be only given one shirt for the whole weekend. If you need to wear it more than one day, we recommend you wear another shirt underneath the SiouxperCon shirt. Shorts and slacks are permitted. No sandals or open-toed shoes are allowed. Please do not wear heavy or intrusive jewelry (“intrusive” being anything that can potentially harm you or people around you).

The SiouxperCon volunteer shirt must be worn during all shifts the volunteer works. SiouxperCon cannot guarantee a shirt in your size. If SiouxperCon is out of shirts in the volunteer’s size, the volunteer must wear a shirt of a larger size. If all sizes are too small, the volunteer will not be furnished with a shirt.

While working as a volunteer, you are representing SiouxperCon. It is essential that you are kind, courteous, knowledgeable and professional at all times to ensure attendees and exhibitors enjoy the show.
