Norwescon is run entirely by volunteers. Each year, over 250 people generously give of their time in order to make Norwescon the best it can be for its members and participants.
Volunteers are the backbone of the convention, from those of us who donate our time year round to those of you who lend a much needed helping hand for a couple of hours at the convention. Whether that is watching the doors at the Masquerade, helping out at the Registration Desk, or manning the Cloak Closet, we need that help.
## Volunteering at the Convention
Did you know that Norwescon needs volunteers on Wednesday to help set up our awesome convention? Please report to Grand 1 to help out! We will also need lots of willing hands to help during the convention in order to keep it running at top speed. Please consider visiting the volunteer lounge in Olympic 3 and signing up to give even an hour of your time. We have prizes!
## Stuffing Party!
Want to help out for a bit on the Sunday before the con (April 13th)? Please join us for fun and games as we take pieces of paper, paperback books, buttons and coupons and marry them together to form the packets that everybody receives at Registration. The more people we have, the faster it will go. Be the first in your neighborhood to see what sort of goodies everyone will receive. Cop a button or two advertising the next big movie. We might even have the latest programming grids on the wall for your perusal. For more details, please see [this weblog post][stu]!
2016 Summer Retreat: If you plan on joining us for our summer 2016 retreat to help plan for Norwescon 40 and beyond, please fill out this registration form. Thank you!
