Volunteering is as easy as showing up to FanimeCon, getting your badge, and letting us know you want to volunteer! No need to attend meetings or learn anything in advance. We train you on the spot and tell you what you need to know.

Why Volunteer?
Because FanimeCon needs your help! Work just 20 hours and get a full reimbursement of your weekend membership or 5 hours to get reimbursed for a single day badge. Volunteers are wanted at all hours in virtually all departments, so stop by and find the schedule that works for you.

What do I need to know?
Volunteers need to be at least 18 years old. If you are over 18 years old, you will need to provide photo ID to volunteer. Teens that are 13 years old or older can still volunteer, but they must have a minor waiver form signed by a guardian to do so. Reimbursements will be mailed out after the convention.

Where do I sign up?
Once you get your badge, immediately head over to the Volunteers Room located on the second floor of the Marriott right next to the hallway leading to the convention center!

When do you guys open?
The Volunteers Room hours are as follows but subject to change.
Thursday: 5 pm – 9 pm
Friday – Sunday: 8 am – 9 pm
Monday: 8 am – 4 pm

Important Updates for 2013!

  • You cannot reimburse another person’s badge. For example, you cannot work 10 hours to reimburse your badge and another attendee’s one day badge.
  • Only people who volunteer can get reimbursed.
  • Thursday hours are for pre-registered members only! If you are not pre-registered you will not get credit for double hours worked on Thursday.
  • Volunteers can only sign-up for a maximum of 3 hours on Monday (6 hours credited) and are on a first-come, first-serve basis. This means volunteers cannot work off all their hours on Monday, unless they have a one-day Monday badge.
