Between the Veils offers 3 levels of involvement:
Division Heads, Department Leads/ Staff, and Volunteers.

Division Heads

Division Heads lead teams of Staff and Volunteers in various areas of the conference, and report to the Conference Manager and Board of Directors. They work 5-15 hours per week during the months leading up to the conference, depending on their role. They are then on shift or on call as leaders throughout the conference itself. Division Heads are compensated with free conference registration, a personal room throughout the conference, meals, and a paid percentage of the total profit produced by the conference. The percentage paid varies depending on the workload of the Division Head.

 

If you are interested in being a department head, view the available positions below and submit your application and resume. Candidates who seem like a good fit will be invited to interview via Zoom.

Department Staff & Leads

Department Staff and Leads ('Staff') work on a particular task, aspect, or department of the conference for a total of 24 hours or more. Staff report to Division Heads, and direct Volunteers.  Many of these positions work on their division before the actual conference begins, and all will at least be in communication with their Division Head and other Department Staff before the weekend of the Conference. In exchange for their help, Staff receive free admission to the Conference, a hotel room shared with one other Staff member, swag including a T-shirt, and access to the Staff Lounge with snacks and other goodies.

Talented staff of all kinds are needed, including people with skills in..... 

  • Graphic design, PR, social media, and marketing

  • Light and sound tech, wiring, and IT systems

  • Stagecraft, construction, and equipment logistics 

  • Food preparation, catering, and service 

  • Customer service, hospitality, and helping people feel welcome

  • Medical, first aid, and wellness assistance including mental health providers

  • More!

An intake form is coming soon for people interested in being staff. In the meantime, please email conference@betweentheveils.org if you are interested in one of these roles.

Volunteers

Volunteers are people who contribute to the Between the Veils Conference by giving some hours of their time during the conference to help in areas such as registration, set up and strike, gate and welcome, etc. Volunteers receive a T-shirt and access to the Staff Lounge (and lots of praise and appreciation) for their help. Volunteers report to Department Staff and Leads.

If you choose to volunteer for two 4-hour shifts (8 hours total) 1/2 of your registration will be reimbursed. If you choose to volunteer for three or more 4-hour shifts (12 hours total or more), your registration fee for the conference will be reimbursed. 

A form will be posted here soon where you can put in your name and interests for our volunteer team to process. In the meantime, if you have questions about volunteering or would like to be put on a list to have the form emailed to you once it comes out, please write to volunteers@betweentheveils.org
