Defenders are the most important part of TheGameCon operational team; they help attendees, keep the peace, run different events/ activities, and keep the convention fun and moving forward for all attendees. A Defender is more than just a volunteer is, they are an individual with a passion for gaming, and community that sculpts how every attendee experiences TheGameCon.
The Defender Selection Process is made to make sure all individuals who have a drive to improve TheGameCon are accepted. Previous Defenders are accepted automatically if no strikes are on your account, if you have a friend that is a Defender or was a Defender and has been accepted please have them reefer you, you will get accepted faster.
I am a new Defender. Yes, you will need to purchase the Defender Deposit to be confirmed.
I am a returning Defender. No, you already paid your deposit during your first year. The Defender Deposit is a one-time fee to help pay for your equipment for the first year.
What if I can't pay for the Deposit? You can contact the Defender Coordinator for a waiver of the Defender Deposit.
