One Week Left For Agent Applications
There is only one week left to apply to be a volunteer agent for GeekGirlCon 2016. Applications will promptly close on August 1st at 10 PM PST (next Monday), so make sure to get yours submitted soon!
There are only two requirements to become one of our agents. You must available to work a minimum of 2 shifts that about about 4 to 5 hours each, and you need to be at least 16 years old. Most importantly, you’ll need to bring a ton of enthusiasm, because we’ll have plenty to do and see throughout the weekend. We’ll need help making sure that every activity and panel goes off without a hitch. Agents will spend time on both the convention floor and behind the scenes helping set up equipment, handing out passes, and so much more.
The first ever GeekGirlCon was held in the fall of 2011. During that weekend, I was in Florida adjusting to college life. Five years later, I’m now working out of Seattle, breaking into the gaming industry and working with GeekGirlCon as a Copywriter. Everyday I work with GeekGirlCon, I’m taken aback by how talented everyone on the team is. Everyone is extremely motivated about putting on a great con, and we’re all major geeks that are passionate about empowering and celebrating the achievements of women in geeky culture. We’re also all volunteers. Everyone involved, from year-round organizers to our agents, volunteer their time to put together a spectacular gathering that is now an annual event.
This year, our 6th GeekGirlCon will be held at Conference Center at Washington State Convention Center October 8th and 9th. We’ve got a great lineup, including a recently announced collection of artists and exhibitors, historically brilliant panels, and plenty of fun activities to leave you breathless come Sunday evening.
Make sure to submit your application no later than August 1st by 10 PM PST, and I look forward to seeing you there!
