All staff must meet the following minimum requirements:

  • Must be 16 as of December 14th, 2017
    • Children Age 16 and 17 must get parental permission to host a panel.
Panel Hosts can receive reimbursement for their time.

For each panel, up to two people may receive “panel host hours.” These can be turned in after the hours at worked at the Registration desk at the following rate:

  • If you turn in 5 or more panel host hours, we will refund the entirety of your pass, as long as it is a normal 3-day or single day pass.
  • -OR- If you turn in 4 or more panel host hours, we will issue a cash refund of $30.
  • -OR- If you turn in 3 or more panel host hours, we will issue a cash refund of $20.
  • -OR- If you turn in 2 or more panel host hours, we will issue a cash refund of $10.

You may also convert these hours into Volunteer Hours at the Rate of 1 Panel Host Hour = 2 Volunteer Hours, but the only award level for Volunteers will be 13 or more Volunteer Hours equals one fully refunded pass (3-day or single day only).

Each person may only receive one refund per convention year (Panel and Volunteer). Refunds will only be available until Sunday at 8pm ET.

Some panelists will receive early access capabilities for 2017. Keep an eye out in your email.
