GalaCon 2019 volunteers sign-up
For GalaCon 2019, we’re once again looking for volunteers that will help us make GalaCon once again the event of the year. GalaCon will be held on 27-28th July 2019 in Ludwigsburg, Germany, with preparations starting on 26th July. Volunteers will, as a guideline, work roughly half the convention time, and as compensation will have free entry the remaining time.
We’re offering several team categories, and we strongly suggest to apply for at least two or three of them. Some will be quite popular, others have high demands. Some volunteers may also be assigned to different teams at different times.
Here’s where we’re searching for help:
To apply for volunteering, fill out Alternatively, send an email to volunteer(at)galacon.eu (preferably in english).
Convention language is English, so you should be able to talk to people in English – don’t worry, most visitors won’t be native English speakers either. Due to the strict youth labor regulations on weekends, volunteers need to be over 18 years old to be accepted.
Although not strictly required, we would greatly appreciate it if you can arrive on Friday to help setting up the con, meet your fellow helpers and superiors and get to know the location. Especially if you’re a first-time volunteer!
Volunteering means working while others have fun, you should be aware of that. As compensation, you’ll get free entry in your off-hours, we’ll provide some snacks and water, there will be a signing session exclusively for volunteers, and maybe we can arrange some more extras for you. And of course you’ll be part of the largest European convention of the year!
Also note that we cannot provide any accommodation or meals, make sure you have some place to stay overnight. Budget hotels and hostels will be booked out early.
All informations that you provide will be treated with utter respect and will be kept strictly confidential to the team, and as needed, to the volunteer leaders. They will only be used for internal purposes at GalaCon, after which they will be deleted. All data handling will be in full compliance with §4 BDSG.
After applying, we will contact you soon that we received your application. Later on, we will let you know whether you will be accepted as GalaCon volunteer. This may take some time, as we collect applications first. To get an overview of the current status of the volunteer applications, or if you think some mail may got lost, check the volunteer thread at eurobronies.org.
If you’ve ordered a regular ticket and get accepted as a volunteer later on, we will of course give you a refund.
