About the role of Volunteer
Anime Ohio would not be possible without the numerous
volunteers needed to maintain the event from start to finish.
Volunteers for Anime Ohio
are also a reflection of Anime Ohio to the guests and attendees as
well as ambassadors for the cities of Cincinnati and Sharonville to any
visitors and out-of-town guests. Therefore, Anime Ohio selects
energetic, positive, and outgoing individuals to be volunteers for Anime Ohio
and its other supporting events.

Volunteer Terms and Conditions and Release
One of our
priorities is for everyone to have fun and enjoy themselves this weekend. Fans
attending this weekend that need each and every one of you to have a successful
and safe event. The growth of Anime Ohio will not be possible without
volunteers and we thank you for your participation.
Here are some policies we have in place to give the fans and
attendees an informed, safe, and well-organized event.
1) Volunteers are not permitted to wear hats, costume makeup, or
costumes while on duty for Anime Ohio (unless the role assigned
calls for it). Volunteers must be identifiable with nothing hiding any facial
2) Volunteers will be given a uniform T-shirt, which must be worn
during the time periods of volunteering at the event. This is the one common
feature that identifies volunteer staff with the patrons and attendees of
the event for easy assistance and guidance. The shirt or top you wore to
the convention center maybe worn during break periods or at the end of the
shift. If you are wearing your Volunteer shirt on a break and your assistance
is needed, you maybe called into service.
3) Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older at the time
of Anime Ohio (June 27, 2020).
4) Volunteers must be available the entire period they have signed
up. Please be available for the entire shift that you signed up for. If your
schedule has changed and you are not able to make all of periods you signed up
for, please let us know as soon as possible. If you can make it for part of a
shift, have to leave early or arrive late, please let us know. Many shifts and
roles are designed to be covered for certain time frames. If you are unable to
cover the entire period, we can plan accordingly to place in a position that
accommodates that schedule.
5) Volunteers are NOT PERMITTED to ask for free or
complimentary autographs or photographs by guests. Arrangements are made
between the guests and organizers to receive a certain number of pieces to be
distributed to the most active and worthy volunteers. If a volunteer wishes to
have a certain piece or a personalized piece, then they seek it on their own
