LANFest is a community of gamers that support local charities by hosting the most epic LAN events ever! Since 2002, our volunteers have made a difference across the United States by supporting local charities unaware of the passion gamers have in making a difference. Join us to game and give.
We are Gamers Giving Back!
Our mission “LANFest is dedicated to empowering gaming communities and supporting charitable efforts by creating unique gaming experiences,” is the driving force behind everything that we do in the organization. We keep our planning, discussions, and actions true to the mission statement. We check our team’s actions to moving LANFest’s Mission forward and continuing our growth. We are open and transparent within the organization as we work toward our mission as a team.
Respect and Communication
Relationships are built on trust and respect. We listen, respect, and follow the guidance of LANFest leaders. All members are responsible to ensure an atmosphere of open communication and respect. We follow the expectations set out in the Communication Policy, and enthusiastically respond to all requests. We exercise respect for our team, and do our best not to stop the organization from moving forward.
Everyone's time and ideas are equally important and need to be heard. This means we are respectful of others opinions. Leaders will listen to the input of their team while taking positive direct action to fulfill their team’s job. We all do our part to foster a team environment by inviting each member to contribute and not interrupting. We are open to being mentored and giving of our time to mentor others. We are all working towards the same vision, and will go further as a team.
We know that we can rely on our team members to be honest, open, upstanding people; we strive to set that example. We hold ourselves accountable, and respond positively to feedback and assistance as leaders hold us accountable. We do not politic or lobby for our personal benefit, and all stakeholders will be present and heard before discussing any topic toward resolution. Follow the spirit of the LANFest Code of Conduct. We are clear in our work by creating unambiguous documentation and procedures.
We are a group of highly motivated, passionate gamers, and we support the organization by bringing that positive energy into our work. Humor and fun are part of our meetings and our events, but we must ensure our humor doesn’t hurt others. We all do our part to build and nourish the LANFest environment: safe, inclusive, family friendly, joyful, and the ultimate love of gaming!
We are an open and inviting community building on the strengths of our diverse members. We look for new members with different experience and skills to add to our team. Our events embrace the LANFest culture along with our online community. We build a brighter LANFest through following these core values, expressing positive behaviors, and working toward the same vision.
