Worktraders are a vitally important part of the event – we couldn’t do it without worktraders!  It also works well for the workers – it’s a great way to get to know people, to become a contributing member of the community and make good friends while earning a good discount off of the registration price.  If it is your first year at the Congress, we have you start with doing a half-trade to allow us to get to know each other and to give you enough time to experience the event.  When you have successfully completed a half-trade you are eligible for a three-quarter trade, full trades are usually given to folks who have attended and worked for several years.

Registration for a half trade is $125 (before May 20) and the trade is about 10 hours.
A three-quarter trade is $75 (before May 20) and the trade is around 15 hours.
After May 20 worktrade prices go up by $25.

Our greatest area of need is in the kitchen, with tea kitchen second.
