What It Means to Volunteer as GeekGirlCon Staff
With the exception of the Executive Director, GeekGirlCon staff positions are all volunteer, non-paid positions.
Attendance in-person or remotely for staff and departmental meetings is required.
Must maintain prompt and professional correspondence.
Most work is conducted over email and with in-person meetings in the Seattle area.
Between 2-6 hours per week of work is required for this role (including meetings, emails, etc) with more hours leading up to the convention.
The staff is a team of highly dedicated, geeky, and passionate volunteers; it’s a lot of hard work, but an amazing experience with lots of opportunity to help build GeekGirlCon for the future!
