First off, yes - I'm really late with this. I usually post this much earlier, and I apologize for the short notice.
One of the special things during the Mega Mouse Meet event (Saturday,
12/8 from 1:00-3:30 p.m.) is that we station representatives from participating communities outside the meeting room to greet newcomers. Disney Internet fans are sometimes shy and not sure about this whole "meeting face to face" thing, and having a friendly face greet them and welcome them makes a big difference!
Each participating community is being asked to provide at least three volunteers who are willing to act as greeters. They'll need to work just one hour each (or less, if we have enough), which will leave them free to enjoy the event the rest of the time. The one-hour time commitment worked well last year, so that's what we're planning for this year, too.
In general, greeters do the following: welcome folks to the Mega Mouse Meet, make sure each person has a name tag (greeters will walk around with the same label sheets as on the reception table), assist folks finding the webmaster, author, community, or company they may be looking for, hand out Swag Bags and Pocket Guides, and offer general assistance.
If you're planning to attend the Mega Mouse Meet and would be willing to help out as a greeter, please let me know, either by posting on this thread or by sending me a PM or an email with your name and e-mail address (so that you can be contacted with further information and they can check you against the list at the volunteer check-in). Due to my procrastination, I need to get the list of volunteers to the coordinators in the next few days, so please sign up as soon as possible.
Thanks for your help, and I'll see you at MouseFest!
