The rest are still in consideration.

I have already submitted an application for a volunteer position but I yearn for a position where I can contribute more to the making of the convention and hence my eagerness to apply as a staff member. I must confess that I have no experience in running an animé convention however, I do have a burning passion to learn new skills and a desire to help others.
Mune wrote:Thank you Deaf for voicing your concern and interest in becoming a staff member. Staff members are required to show up for monthly meetings and contribute to organizing and planning of the events. We understand everyone's schedules are different, therefore not being able to attend a couple of meetings is acceptable as long as you make an effort to know what you missed. During the convention, staff members are required to fulfill their assigned tasks and do what is necessary for a smooth convention. Every staff member's dedication level is different. We know some people work two to three jobs and barely have anytime to help plan, but as long as they show dedication and will be able to help out during the three days that AR will be open, we can manage something. If we feel that they are not showing enough dedication and input, we will notify them about the option of becoming a volunteer.
As long as you have the passion to learn and the desire to help others, we will to our best ability provide you with the knowledge and experience you seek. Learning never ends, therefore this con will be a great learning experience for not just yourself but for our team as well.
