    program. San Antonio is hosting Accord and Requiem on Saturday, November 2
    at the same hotel wherein we are hosting the National Event in April.

    Come out and preview the site! Bring your Accord drama! Bring your Requiem
    best!

    We happily welcome your RSVP at the Facebook Event:

    Schedule:
    Saturday, Nov 2, 2013
    12:00pm Check-In
    12:30 – 5:30pm – Accord
    5:30 – 6:30pm – Break
    6:30 – 11:30pm – Requiem

    Storytelling Particulars:
    Approvals: I would like players to either e-mail me a copy or bring an
    additional physical copy of their character sheets and approvals with
    mechanics or particularly strange approvals, with all pertinent data, prior
    to game.

    Proxies: I allow proxies when there is a body willing to play the
    character. I don’t care how this is achieved. If you want to hire a hooker
    or something to stand and move around as your character, that is ok. I do
    not want to run your character. The hooker idea would probably be
    expensive. Teaser will come later, closer to the date of the event.

  • 2014 MES National Event – Coordinator Leads All Call

    *Hello, MES!

     

    *We are looking for a few good men or women to step up and help make the
    first annual MES National Convention a success! I’m looking for coordinator
    staff leads who have the time and desire to volunteer for some demanding
    leadership positions. Below, you will find general expectations for
    convention staff leads as well as more specific job outlines for the
    coordinator lead positions. Applications will be accepted until August
    10that 11:59 PM and should be emailed to the National Event Lead at
    national.event.lead@mindseyesociety.org and cc’d to the MES NCA at
    nca@mindseyesociety.org. Please include your MES resume and a statement
    about what you would bring to the table in such a position. Also, include
    any unique ideas that you have to improve the function of the position in
    question. Then, include any relevant real life experience and note any DA’s
    from the past two years. Please include at least two references. Title your
    email [2014 National Event Lead Application] so that none of the
    applications get lost in the shuffle. Thank you for your time and
    consideration!

     

    *Expectations for all Coordinator Staff Leads*

     

    Coordinator Staff Leads will work closely with the Event Lead to put on a
    successful show. Lead positions will be time consuming, requiring attention
    to detail, organization, high amounts of energy and the ability to interact
    with not only organization members, but with the hotel staff in a manner
    that is consistent with our highest standards of behavior. Several lead
    positions must also be able to handle large sums of money in a responsible
    fashion. Consistent reporting leading up to the convention, as well as the
    submission of a final report directly after the completion of the event
    will be expected of each Staff Lead. Reports will be submitted to the Event
    Lead and CC’d to the Event Second. These positions are selected by the
    Event Lead with approval from the NCA.

     

    *Event Second*

    An Event Second basically functions as the right-hand of the event lead.

    This is the person to whom decisions default if the event lead is unable to
    perform his or her duties for any reason. This should be someone who can be
    relied upon to complete delegated leadership tasks and complete projects in
    a timely manner. Event Second is likely to be a very demanding position and
    should only be accepted with commitment and understanding of this fact. He
    or she must posses the ability to handle money responsibly.

     

    *Media Manager*

    This position is designed to manage announcements for a con (streamlining
    general announcements), act as a point of contact for the con (to help
    ferry people to the right place), and to design and manage Websites,
    Facebook, G+, Wiki, and other media. The creation of these resources will
    be done in consultation with the Event Lead and the NCA staff to ensure
    that all necessary functionality is implemented. He or she will also drum
    up interest in the event, promoting it consistently and posting regular
    updates on email lists and other media when needed.

     

    *Registration Lead*

    Registration is a position that is handled before and at the convention and
    is responsible for assembling a team to handle the registration desk (both
    Pre-registration and at the Door Registration). The Registration lead must
    be able to handle large sums of money responsibly. He or she is responsible
    for registration being staffed at all times.

     

    *Charity Lead*

    The Charity lead is responsible for suggesting charity events and
    fund-raising events for approval by the Event Lead, and will be responsible
    for full project management of approved events. This person must posses the
    ability to handle funds responsibly. Experience with charity work is
    preferred.

     

    *Prestige Lead*

    The Prestige Lead is responsible for collecting the volunteer hours and
    donations prior to and throughout the convention and reporting them to the
    Event Lead in a prompt manner. This position will be encouraged to enter
    all of the information as the event weekend progresses and to meet the
    deadlines for delivery one week post convention.

     

    *Volunteer Lead*

    The Volunteer Lead is responsible for soliciting and scheduling volunteers
    before the event and at the event. It is also important to work closely
    with the Prestige Lead to ensure that all volunteer hours are accounted.
    The volunteer lead will work closely with the Event Lead, other coordinator
    staff leads and the St lead to staff the convention efficiently and
    effectively.*

     

    Vendor Lead*

    The vendor Lead is responsible for soliciting and managing vendors for the
    dealers room at the convention. The Vendor lead will communicate regularly
    with vendors and keep the event lead abreast of the situation regarding
    vendors for the convention.

     

    *Security Lead*

    The security lead will be responsible for organizing security efforts
    during the convention. Traditionally, we have always policed our own, as it
    were. Hotels tend to appreciate this effort to keep our convention from
    troubling other guests while still allowing members to enjoy the
    convention. The security lead will assure that a suitable security staff is
    on duty for the duration of the event. This lead will also be involved in
    the training of said volunteers.

     

    *Production Lead*

    **The production lead is responsible for setup and breakdown efforts during
    the convention. Settings and ambiance, as well as functionality will the
    concern of the Production Lead. This person will work together with the
    Event Lead and ST Lead to deliver the best possible setting for the
    convention. This person should also be able and willing to communicate
    effectively with hotel staff as needed.

     

    *Hospitality Lead/Concierge*

    Hospitality is showing MES members the region and the event staff’s
    hospitality. The Hospitality lead will be responsible for securing food and
    beverage donations for the hospitality suite as well as organizing any
    games/activities to be hosted there. They will also be responsible for
    assuring that the Hospitality Suite remains staffed during all hours of
    operation. Hospitality will also be responsible for putting together a
    concierge service in which local attractions and businesses are showcased
    along with any other helpful information for convention guests.

     
    *NOTE *: Additional duties may be added at the discretion of the Event Lead
    and the NCA, as needed. These descriptions are meant to give volunteers a
    good idea of what their responsibilities will be, but do not encompass
    every possible duty of a job. If you have any questions, please do ask
    before applying for or committing to one of these positions.
