Volunteer in the Dealers Room

Reytypus and Kylo Plat by Erik AppelhofWe need volunteers to help our Dealers load in and set up their exhibition spaces during Setup Hours on Friday morning, which often involves moderately heavy lifting (both physical and emotional; some Dealers are grouchy). Process is reversed during Teardown on Sunday afternoon. Volunteers may also be asked to check badges to ensure only dealer-badged members have access during setup hours. Whoever safely loads in/out the most boxes of books will be anointed Knight Errant of the Bibliophile Legions (seriously, we can find a sword and make this happen).

Volunteer for six hours and you get an exclusive, not-for-sale platypus parody t-shirt.

You can see all our Volunteer opportunities here.
