    Many thanks to Serenla for doing such a wonderful job as our Conference Co-ordinator. She's been responsible for co-ordinating JordanCon for our membership and we will miss her greatly!

    • Liaise with Jordan Con staff to organize official TarValon.Net activities at the conference.
    • Communicate with the community about attendance, roommates, and official events.
    • Moderate the Conferences forum and update with information as appropriate.
    • Work with the Director of Marketing and the Director of Community Outreach to promote our site and publicize our annual scholarship at Jordan Con.
    • Ideally, serve as a resource to the community about other major fantasy conventions in North America.

    Requirements

    • Must be a member of any rank in good standing for at least 6 months.
    • Must have attended at least one official real life event, preferably Jordan Con.
    • Must be able and willing to travel to Jordan Con at your own expense.
    • Must be able to dedicate about 5 hours per week to this role. More time may be needed around April and less at other times of the year.

    If you would like to apply for this position, please send an email with the subject line APPLICATION – Conference Coordinator – YOURNAMEHERE explaining why you think you would be a good fit for the position to events@tarvalon.net, keeper@tarvalon.net and amyrlin@tarvalon.net.

    It's so fun I've done it twice! And in between years when we didn't officially have this role. :)

    Please feel free to ask me any questions via my PM box.

    There is none. Life is a seemingly endless round of disappointments until death.

    Does it really matter? It's efforts will only end in misery anyhow.

    I prefer a seemingly endless round of ecstasy until death. We should hug it out and make strange faces at one another. :mdd
