|What is the difference between a STAFF Volunteer and a GENERAL volunteer||A STAFF volunteer is a volunteer who was recruited or asked to help out a department. They are generally arranged by the department head/coordinator. They have additional responsibilities all year long. If you would like to work directly with the convention or a department as a STAFF volunteer to help make future conventions awesome then we suggest staying in touch with a department head or director. We are always looking for a few good people to help make Delta H Con a great convention.|
