Thank you for your interest in helping out with Anthrocon. We depend on our small, but dedicated army of volunteers to help with the thousands of things that need to be done. While we cannot pay our volunteers for their unselfish service, we can at least try to make their efforts worthwhile. As you work, we will ask you to keep track of your hours on a form that we will give to you in room 309 of the DLCC. 

If you would like to discuss volunteer opportunities in advance, please email

You will be given a timesheet and a fabulous ribbon when you sign up. Once you work six (6) hours during the convention, we will give you a small token of our appreciation TBD. If you work for twelve (12) hours during the convention, we will give you a free Anthrocon T-shirt! If you work more than eighteen (18) hours, we will give you a complimentary membership to Anthrocon next year.

Here are some examples of what we need help with:

  • Loading and unloading

  • Registration volunteers

  • Art Show volunteers

  • Artist Alley volunteers

  • A/V assistants

  • Headless zone volunteers

  • Door Guards
