Help Wanted

Registration Desk Staff

Do you want to welcome everyone to Arisia? Are you calm under pressure as well as friendly? At Con Registration Staff need to be able to use a computer well (search, point and click), follow written procedures, maintain a happy, helpful presence in the face of thousands of attendees, and handle money and credit card machines accurately. The work is not physically demanding, but requires a lot of mental and social engagement with few breaks.

The ADH of Food will assist the Div Head to recruit people to lead Food Areas, work with that year's Arisia leadership group to find appropriate hotel space for their areas, make a realistic budget for the division, provide guidance to staff in the division, and accurately represent needs for the division.

Programming Update

Thanks to over two hundred people for suggestions this year!

As of early August, we will no longer be actively culling from the brainstorm forum. Arisia will take the rest of August to process submissions and then contact potential panelists around Labor Day.

The brainstorm forums remain open year 'round. You can continue to submit ideas for future conventions whenever you like. And see our Program Participant Form if you'd like to get an invitation to Arisia programming.
