Priority Ticketing is designed to compensate teachers and other volunteers who have donated hours that could otherwise be used to attend classes. That means you must be volunteering or teaching:
- During class hours (10am–12noon, 2pm–5pm), and
- On a day when you are registered to attend with classes
You must also have registered for Convention by May 25th.
As in years past, special priority will be given to teachers and volunteers who work during class time. However, this year the process will be merged with the new online ticketing process. There won’t be any special on-site procedures or forms. Teacher/volunteer priority is taken into account during online class assignment. See Taking Classes and Ticketing FAQ for more details on this new feature.
If you teach and/or volunteer one hour during class time on a day when you are attending with classes, you are eligible for priority consideration for 2 classes on any day on which you are attending with classes.
If you teach and/or volunteer two hours or more during class time on days you are attending with classes, you are eligible for priority consideration for 4 classes on any day on which you are attending with classes.
Please be aware of these important new deadlines for participation in priority ticketing:
- Teachers must have entered their teaching forms before the closing date for teaching form entry.
- Volunteers must have signed up for their volunteer hours before the class requests period ends.
These key dates can be seen on the Schedules and Previews page.
Please note that only a limited number of priority tickets for each class will be available. Teachers/volunteers requesting this priority will have their requests filled in order based on their ticketing sequence number. A class cannot be sold out by priority ticketing before the regular ticketing process begins. So it is important to enter many choices for your top picks during online class registration.
