Volunteer

CONvergence is a volunteer-run event and couldn’t exist without countless hours of work from hundreds of dedicated fans. That’s true from the Department Heads and Staff of the Convention Committee to the at-con volunteer who works a single hour as a badger.

Check out some of the volunteer positions available. There are ways to help out for all interests and ability levels! We’re also always looking for convention committee (ConCom) members to staff departments for the convention year-round.

All CONvergence volunteers attending the convention must register for the convention. (Volunteering does not get anyone a free membership.) If you have any questions or would like to volunteer in any area of the convention, please contact the Volunteer department.

IMG_6256If you’re looking for opportunities to volunteer during CONvergence, you can either contact the volunteer department ahead of time, or visit the Volunteer Table during the convention!  (The Volunteer table is located in Veranda 2, right next to Registration & Badge Pick-Up.)

Volunteer Table Hours

  • Wednesday 9:00am – 6:00pm, 9:00pm – Midnight
  • Thursday 9:00am– 10:00pm

  • Saturday 9:00am – 10:00pm

The Volunteer Table is our primary at-con location to coordinate and gather volunteers. It is also where you will pick up and turn in your Volunteer card, and where you’ll be able to get your volunteer ribbon, t-shirt and other cool volunteer perks!

We will have volunteer positions posted on a whiteboard at the Volunteer table throughout the Convention. Be sure to watch closely because they will be changing periodically.

Volunteers are always needed after hours, too! If the Volunteer Table is closed for the night, stop by The Bridge to find out about at-con volunteer opportunities!

Volunteers Den

CONvergence provides a space for our valued Volunteers to relax after their shift, get some healthy food, have a massage or just hang out with other volunteers. Check out our Volunteers Den page for more info!

Volunteers Party

Every year, CONvergence invites each and every one of that year’s volunteers to come together for our annual Volunteers Party, complete with snacks, games, door prizes and more!
