Gen Con Indy 2013
16/32-Hour Page Levels
What is a "Page"?
Pages are volunteers who devote a set amount of time to assisting in all areas of the show, from helping with special events, running errands, handing out show bags, checking badges, assisting Game Masters, etc. No task is overlooked or under-appreciated! Page positions are easy to learn and do not require previous experience to qualify for the assignments. If you're interested in helping the Gen Con Team and can devote 16+ hours over the five days of Gen Con Indy (Wednesday - Sunday), we have a 16-Hour Page level that's right for you. Those who are able to devote 32+ hours to the Gen Con Volunteer Program but aren't looking to commit to consecutive shows should check out the 32-Hour Page level and the great benefits it offers (must be at least 18 years of age). It's an easy process to become a Gen Con Page, so read on to find out how it works!
What are the Benefits?
16-HOUR PAGE (must be age 14 or over)
32-HOUR PAGE (must be age 18 or over)
How Does it Work?
PRE-REGISTRATION: Review our Volunteer Policies and submit your volunteer application prior to the July1 deadline. To access the application, log into your Gen Con account by clicking “Log In” in the upper right of the page, hover your mouse over the “Volunteer” header, and click “Volunteer Application”. Fill in the appropriate information, update your contact information (which will also update your Profile page), review the volunteer policies and medical waiver, and check the appropriate boxes in order to complete your application. If we receive your application before the deadline listed, we will contact you via email or phone before the show with more information and your onsite volunteer schedule. This will make it easier for you to schedule events around the times you know you will be working. You will also need to purchase a 4-Day badge to Gen Con Indy either through our online registration system or onsite before you begin your volunteer shift.
ONSITE: Report to the Volunteer HQ kiosk either during a pre-determined time or when you have some time to spare. The Volunteer HQ staff will give you a timecard and send you to an area needing assistance. At the end of your shift, have the area manager sign your time card. If you have no direct supervisor, report back to the Volunteer HQ kiosk for a signature. When you have completed your required number of hours, submit your timecard to the Volunteer HQ staff. 32-Hour Pages should also submit your hotel receipt to Volunteer HQ. Specifics regarding submitting hotel receipts can be found on our Volunteer Policies and Volunteer FAQ pages.
POST-SHOW: If you are unable to turn in your timecard (and hotel receipt, if applicable) to Volunteer HQ before the convention has ended, you may mail your paperwork to Gen Con LLC, Attn: Customer Service & Volunteer Manager, 120 Lakeside Ave, Suite 100, Seattle, WA 98122.
If there are any discrepancies on your timecard or hotel receipt, you will be notified via the email address or phone number provided on your timecard. It is very important that you provide us with clearly written contact information to prevent any delays in receiving reimbursement. If we do not receive a completed, signed timecard with your hours and any other paperwork within four (4) weeks after the show, you will not receive credit for the hours you worked or any reimbursement.
If you have questions regarding our Volunteer Program, check out the Volunteer Policies and Volunteer FAQ or contact the Customer Service & Volunteer Manager at volunteers(at)gencon.com or 800-529-3976, x3806. Customer Service hours are Monday - Friday, 9:30 am - 5:00 pm (Pacific). During the convention, all inquiries can be made at the Volunteer HQ kiosk.
