Volunteer for WeeM Now!

Volunteering offers you a great opportunity to be in the spotlight, become part of the cast of WeeM 43, and hobnob with the stars of WeeM! Volunteer at HalloweeM and earn your Volunteer Pin — the rest of the attendees will be so jealous! It’s the volunteers that make WeeM so special. In addition to the organizers, we need people to help us. There is much to do and you get to meet some of the nicest people (afterall, Mensans who volunteer are the best Mensans). Consider volunteering for any of the following:

  • Set up at the hotel on Thursday
  • Work in hospitality to make sure food is available throughout the day as well as at mealtimes and there are plenty of beverages
  • Registration
  • Help check that the people at WeeM are indeed registered (wearing their badges for the appropriate day) and meet the age restriction at functions like Pretentious Drinking
  • Greet speakers, show them where to go and ensure they have the equipment they need for their program
  • Tidying up of Games Room
  • Tearing down on Sunday and packing everything up

Volunteers get the coveted WeeM pin (new design every year) and also earn tickets for the Volunteer Raffle. People working the wee hours and those that sign up in advance earn double tickets! Check out our Volunteer Form to see the different positions and time slots available. The online form will be available through Tuesday, October 29th. We encourage you to sign up in advance so we can plan better. However, there will be sign-up sheets onsite near registration for those who decide to contribute any time during their attendance at WeeM — get a friend to join you and increase the fun. We really do appreciate all those who pitch in. It wouldn't be such a great RG if it weren't for all that people do.


The latest Programs At A Glance (PAAG) gives you an idea of when many of the tournaments and programs will be scheduled and helps you avoid volunteering during a time slot that may conflict with something you wish to attend. As always, there may be last minutes changes due to cancellations and/or conflicts.

Deadlines

  • Registration - Discounts for advanced registration are available through October 18th. (Note: Full payment is required by the appropriate deadline to qualify for the discount for which you registered. And full payment must be received by October 18th or you will be required to register at the door.)
  • Excursions - Although there are no spots left for the Excursions, you can still be waitlisted. Signup is closing early on October 18th. Since space is limited, the deadline may move up depending upon demand. If you have signed up and are unable to go, please cancel ASAP so someone else can enjoy the tour.
  • Vendor space - Please complete and submit a Vendor Application by October 20th. If you have any questions after reviewing the Vendor Flyer containing all the details, contact the WeeM Vendor Liaison../images/email-regular.s.gif .
  • Lodging - The hotel extended our deadline! The hotel is offering a WeeM rate of $117 through TODAY, subject to availability. If the hotel block is full, please contact our WeeM Chair../images/email-regular.s.gif who will try to expand the block.
