A gopher is a volunteer who helps out setting up, running and breaking down the convention by performing a wide variety of tasks. These tasks completely depend on what needs to be done at the time. They also help out visitors with questions or issues. They are expected to do so in a friendly manner at all times. We’ll also ask our gophers to help out before and after the convention when able. The more hands we have, the faster we can work.
Being a gopher is about team work and trying to bring out the best in yourself. You’ll work in a team, with all kinds of different people. If this seems like fun, why don’t you sign up as a gopher and see the convention from a very different perspective? You might not know this, but a lot of Staff started out as gophers. Give it a try!
