Volunteer - TooManyGames

What are the DEFENDERS?

Your volunteer role as a member of TooManyGames is to aid in the overall running of the convention for the enjoyment of attendees, guests and volunteers alike. You are an integral part of how the convention operates and we can’t do this without you. We want to make sure that you are given the opportunities to show off your skills as a volunteer to the best of your ability, while still being able to enjoy the convention.

Your role/s and responsibilities will be based on the department you request/are assigned to and will vary based on the needs of the department. Each of these responsibilities are subject to change and may require some more experience than others in order for you to be placed in that department, based on the needs of the position/s.

I’ve always enjoyed helping out at TMG. It’s one of my favorite conventions to attend and volunteer. I look forward to hopefully volunteering again and doing everything I can to help out with anything gaming related.
