This form must be completed by either yourself or your parent/guardian.
By completing this form, I understand and agree that I am donating my time as a volunteer with no expectation of compensation from AWA LLC or anyone else. I know of no reason, medical or otherwise, that I am unable to volunteer. I assume all risks associated with volunteering and understand that I will be held liable for my actions and conduct. I, binding my heirs, release AWA LLC, its board, and officers from all liability associated with me volunteering at AWA. As a volunteer, I further agree to abide by any and all AWA policies at all AWA events, meetings, and venues. Furthermore, I agree to the terms and conditions set forth in the Anime Weekend Atlanta Volunteer Waiver & Release of Liability.
You are required to have a Guardian Consent Form on file with AWA. A copy will be emailed to you and can also be found here. Please, download the form, have a parent/guardian complete it, and submit it via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in person to Crew Resources at any Volunteer meeting at your earliest convenience. AWA must have a Guadian Consent Form on file for the current year before your badge will be issued at the Convention. It is valid for one(1) year.
New Volunteers are required to submit a $20 badge deposit. Cash only. Deposits may be paid to Crew Resources in person at Volunteer meetings or at the Convention. Badges will not be issued until payment is received. Deposits are refunded Saturday and Sunday of the Convention to those who have completed 14 hours of work.
By completing this form, I understand and agree to the terms and conditions outlined below. I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless AWA, LLC (AWA), its affiliates, directors, and/or associates from any and all claims which are brought by, or on behalf of, myself and which are in any way connected with my participation in the convention. In being permitted to participate in any activities organized, operated, or sanctioned by AWA, I hereby acknowledge and agree to the following terms and conditions:
I understand that the materials and tools provided, such as radios, hand-trucks, etc., by AWA, LLC are and remain the property of AWA, LLC and I agree to return these tools and any remaining materials to Anime Weekend Atlanta at the end of my volunteer service. Should I fail to return any property belonging to AWA, LLC, I understand and agree that I am held liable and will submit, replace, or otherwise compensate AWA, LLC upon request within 30 days.
I further understand that participation as a Volunteer may involve physical activities and/or requirements (i.e., standing for long periods of time, lifting objects weighing 15 pounds or more, dancing, role playing) and may be inherently dangerous, carrying the risk of serious or grievous injuries, including bodily injury, damage to personal property, and/or death, which will demand the exercise of reasonable care to avoid said dangers. I am voluntarily participating in this activity with knowledge of the hazards and potential dangers involved, and agree to accept any and all risks of personal injury and property damage. I further acknowledge that the activities will be conducted in facilities that may or may not be open to the public.
Should it be necessary for me to receive medical care while participating as an AWA Volunteer, I give the AWA personnel permission to use reasonable discretion in obtaining medical care for myself, and grant permission to any physician or other qualified medical providers, including but not limited to nurses and ambulance personnel to render whatever medical care they deem necessary and that all charges for services, equipment, and supplies incurred for such treatment shall be my sole responsibility, and I agree to pay for all that was associated with rendering medical care to me.
I HAVE CAREFULLY READ THIS AGREEMENT AND FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS CONTENTS. I AM AWARE THAT THIS IS A RELEASE OF LIABILITY. BY SUBMITTING MY VOLUNTEER FORM, I AGREE TO IT OF MY OWN FREE WILL.
