Origins wouldn’t exist without our team of volunteers – we want you to join that team! The available shifts for Origins 2020 have just been published and are ready for you to schedule your time. Why should I volunteer?
Volunteering is a great way to make new friends, learn more about the show, and get a few extra perks to make your trip to Columbus easier.What are these perks you speak of?
For each 4-hour shift you volunteer for, you bump up one perk level. See the full chart below for an overview of all the possibilities.
What is a Volunteer Lead and how do I become one?
Leads are volunteers that have worked with us in the past and have demonstrated exceptional leadership skills. They are in charge of specific areas at the show, including fielding attendee questions and managing their volunteer teams. If you are an Origins volunteer fitting this criteria and are interested in becoming a Lead, please email Jim Godin (Meetings Manager) at firstname.lastname@example.org. What happens at the Volunteer Appreciation Party?
To celebrate all the hard work our volunteers have put in to make the show a success, we host a party with food and cash bar, recognize outstanding volunteers, and distribute games provided by sponsoring companies.How do I sign up for a shift?
Simply go to originsgamefair.com/volunteer, click on a location you’re interested in, and create an account to reserve your spot. If an area is fully staffed, you can sign up for the Waitlist to be notified if/when a shift opens up.
