  • How do I sign up to be a volunteer?
  • It's simple. Just stop by the Convention Operations Office and sign up. We'll find something for you to do -- trust us! Please do not contact us prior to the convention to offer your services except as noted above, or if you have a specific question or suggestion. In our experience, people's plans change far too often to reliably assign volunteer duties too far in advance.

  • What volunteer opportunities are available?
  • The short answer: we'll always have something you can do. Smiling

    The longer answer: we have a rather detailed list of volunteer activities found on our volunteer page. This list is updated with the latest information just a few weeks before each year's convention. However, that list only covers major tasks. There are always little things (such as running equipment or setting things up) that will need to be done, and we would be grateful for any help we receive for those jobs.

  • I want to volunteer my services for a specific function that is not listed above. Who do I contact?
  • Contact the Director of that function (see the Contact page) beforehand. You will still need to check in with Con Ops so that we can keep track of your hours. Again, we do not schedule volunteers ahead of time since people's plans (and our own schedule) are subject to change.

  • Is there a minimum age for volunteers?
  • Volunteers must be a 18 years of age to volunteer at Anthrocon.

  • I want to volunteer my services as a medical professional to run a first aid station. How do I go about it?
  • Thank you for offering! Unfortunately, insurance and liability concerns prevent us from offering official first aid services. The Convention Center will be providing a professional EMT during certain hours in that portion of our convention.

  • Can I volunteer for security?
  • Security is handled by the Dorsai Irregulars. If you would like to help out in that department, please send an email to the "security" address mentioned on our contact page.

  • What do I get for volunteering?
  • That's the GOOD part! If you volunteer just twelve(12) hours over the course of the convention, we'll give you a free Anthrocon T-shirt. If you volunteer eighteen(18) hours or more, we'll not only give you a T-shirt, we'll give you a free membership to next year's Anthrocon. Depending on the time and work performed, some hours will count at a 50% bonus, and some will count double!
