We are always on the lookout for more staff and volunteers to help us make GameStorm fantastic. We have several openings in areas including public relations, event coordination, operations, and many others. If you would like to see behind the ‘curtain’ and help the event become even better, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also be posting some descriptions of key positions that need filled on Facebook as we move forward.
How to reach us:
We have several avenues of access for you to reach out and talk to the various Members of the GameStorm Convention Committee. If you have questions, want to talk to us, or have an idea you would like to share, we would love to hear from you.
