VCON Needs Volunteers!

VCON is a fan-oriented and 100% fan-run convention and our volunteers are the most important resource we have. They are the gears that make VCON happen – without them, there wouldn’t be an event.

Because of that, we offer HUGE membership discounts to everyone who does a certain amount of volunteer work for the convention, whether leading up to or at the event. As an example, some volunteers will get a full-weekend general membership ($75 value) for just $10! There are other perks too, like free t-shirts, other convention swag, not to mention all the ego boosts and warm fuzzies you could want for doing a good job.

 

Are YOU Ready?

  • The organizing committee (ConCom) chair, vice chair, department heads and assistants are all volunteering time throughout the year and at the event.
