As Norwescon 40 has finished, we are in our summer “down time” where we all rest, relax, and take some time off before starting to gear up for Norwescon 41.
However, if you’re at all interested in getting involved with Norwescon, you’re more than welcome to join us at our annual summer Volunteer Appreciation Picnic on July 15!
Otherwise, we’ll start holding our monthly ConCom planning meetings for Norwescon 41 starting in September of 2017. See you then!
We will post openings for positions we’re looking to fill here, but there’s a good chance that there are a number of other positions that could use a willing volunteer, or any number of other ways you can help out! If you’d like to chip in with putting Norwescon 40 together, see what’s listed below, or stop by one of our ConCom volunteer meetings, or even swing by the Volunteers office during the con. We’ll be thrilled to see you!
