Quiet Room Staff Head

This is an at-con job, with a little Pre-con work (recruiting volunteers).

Arisia has set aside space for a quiet room, a place for people to take a break from the convention, the lights and noise. It will be open during the day (10am to 9 pm or so) and to prevent abuse, it needs to be staffed. It also needs to be opened in the am, closed down at night and possibly have someone call housekeeping to tidy or replenish the water setup.
