The Milwaukee Paranormal Conference is a small staff of people who are passionate about making the event happen. We very much rely on volunteer help. Here’s a list of some specific things we need, but we will add more as we realize we missed stuff. Volunteers get a discount on shirts and we are going to organize a volunteer party in October. We appreciate you and if you’re interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you to the list. Let us know if one of the positions is right for you or if you’re open to anything.
Street team– hanging flyers, distributing promotional postcards. Everyone is encouraged to help us out by spreading word online. Our website is milwaukeeparacon.com and this year’s Facebook event page is here: https://www.facebook.com/events/129428029207864
