Why We Staff an Anime Convention

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

Hi everyone! This is Kristyn, the Head of Communications for Zenkaikon. I’ve been writing many of the blog posts so far this year, but I thought it might be time for a more personalized one.

First of all, if you were thinking of applying to join the Zenkaikon staff, you may want to get your application in soon. We’ll be closing staff applications on January 15th.

I also thought this would be a good time to talk more about being staff – what it’s like, and what it entails.
