The success of the Fetish Fair Fleamarket® depends on the generous support of our volunteers. From the people checking your ID and attaching your wristband, to the people loading vendors in and out, to our programming staff, SIGs, Lounge hosts, and the NELA Board. We know we have said it before, but it is just as true today as it was when we first said it; we need you to volunteer! The Fetish Fair Fleamarket is completely volunteer run, and we need people to help make it happen.
For the Winter Flea we have two groups of volunteers:
- ID checkers and wrist banding folks at registration
- Doors & Floors - checking wristbands at various points throughout the hotel
- Vending load-in and load-out
- Help manage classes by introducing presenters, collecting feedback forms, etc
- Door people to help with crowd control and checking wristbands
We also need help with Events including DM's and Logistics - separate announcements about that will appear in our social media networks.
If you would like to volunteer, we are offering different 'thank you' gifts for your time. If you volunteer four hours of your time, we will give you free admission to the event. If you volunteer for 6 hours, you will get a one year Associate Benefit Card (which gets you discounted admission to FFFs and classes) as well as free admission. If you volunteer 6 hours, you will get the previous, plus a T-shirt. Anyone who volunteers for NELA will get an invitation to the volunteer party, normally held in April. Volunteering 10 or more hours will get you an invitation to the party for free, and volunteering 12 or more hours will get you and a guest an invitation to the party for free.
