VOLUNTEER JOBS AND DESCRIPTIONS
Programming volunteers help assist the Programming team with the Programming/Panel rooms. They are responsible for making sure the panels start on time by contacting the SilvrFire Staff in the Autograph and Artist Alley areas 30 minutes prior to each panel to let them know a particular guest/artist panel is coming up. They are also responsible to help fans find seating. Each member of the programming team will be wired in to a communication system in which they will be able to contact the required people immediately.
Registration volunteers are responsible for keeping the Registration Area flowing smoothly. This includes directing the attendees to the correct lines when they arrive. (Exhibitor/Artist/Professional/Guest/VIP/Advance/On-Site/Student Tickets, etc.).
Line Control controls the attendee lines. Wherever there may be an issue with a long line, Line Control will swoop in and keep it under control. Line Control is responsible for making sure that no one gets in without a wristband or a VIP line without a VIP pass.
Artist Alley volunteers will assist the artists in this area. You may have to sit at an Artist’s table while they take a break or escort them to the Panel rooms for their programming session(s). You will also control the smaller lines in this area and if the lines get too long.
In the Autograph Area, tasks include assisting SilvrFire Staff members keep the lines moving and answering general fan questions. Occasionally we will have volunteers sit at a guest table when they are on break, in a photo op, or at a panel. Please do not linger and hang around celebrity booths without assisting with in that area in some capacity. If we receive any complaints from celebrities that specific volunteers are making them feel uncomfortable, we will ask you to leave. SilvrFire is responsible for keeping a safe and controlled environment for our celebrity guests and talent.
