If you want to volunteer, leave a comment or email to FFF.Houston@gmail.com with your name or scene name (whatever you prefer), your email and phone #, and what shift time you want to take and what job you prefer.

We’ll get back to you with whether that slot’s open and other details.

Job descriptions:

Schlepper — help vendors get stuff in from their vehicles on Friday or back out on Sunday

Wristband checker — stand at a security checkpoint and make sure no one passes through without the right wristband color on. Different colors allow different access.

Door security — during set-up and break-down hours, make sure unauthorized people do not enter and that nothing “walks away.”

Classroom monitor — Point person for all classes in a given room during a 3 hour shift. Before the class begins, introduce yourself to the presenter as the classroom monitor. If the presenter needs anything during the class (water, problem with the set up, etc) you fix it or tell us at the main desk about the problem. If they need you to bar the door during a delicate part of the presentation to prevent interruption, do so. You may also want to remind the presenter when their time is up.

Ticket table — sell admission to the event, parties, etc.

    i cannot stand good or for long periods but i could offer a 3 hour shift at the ticket table, so this would give me free access to the classes and vending? i dont care about the 2 nights of the parties.
