This page is pretty easy to use to let us know what volunteer jobs and shifts you want to work for us. It goes like this:

Locate the day you want on the drop-down menu Click [Change]. The schedule for that day will pop up, along with a listing of jobs available across the top and a list of times available to the left. For each shift that is available, a green box with a checkbox will appear. Simply click on the green box(es) you want, then go to the bottom of the page to enter your name and e-mail address. When you click [Send], your request will be sent to the Volunteer Coordinator where it will be processed and posted on the page. If you don't get the shift you requested, please remember that your request may not have been the first one received.

As slots fill up, the little boxes will go away, so be sure to sign up early! Thanks so much for giving us your time. The contributions you make helps to make DemiCon the wild and wacky time we all know and love.
