SO YOU WANT TO BE A CRAFTCATION ASSISTANT!
Fantastic! We are thrilled by your interest in becoming a Craftcation Assistant! This volunteer position is an awesome way to attend the Craftcation Conference – especially if you’re on a budget! In exchange for volunteering your time as a Craftcation Assistant, you will be able to register and attend classes for FREE on the days/times that you are not volunteering! This applies to all Assistant Departments.
FULL DISCLOSURE: Craft workshops, business think tanks require advanced registration. As we are one week away from the first day of the conference, registration is now closed and we are on a waiting list for most workshops in these categories. This doesn’t mean you won’t be able to attend any workshops, though! You will just need to sign up for the workshop waiting lists displayed in each of the classrooms. More waiting list information will be sent to you upon completion of your registration.

OK – HERE’S THE FINE PRINT:
Craftcation Assistant assignments will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis. You may be asked to help in a different area that you were originally assigned the day of the conference if we have a need.
While we are happy to waive the price of your ticket in exchange for your time, please note that we DO NOT PROVIDE ACCOMMODATIONS. We suggest sharing a room with a friend (or three) to keep those costs down.
