No Worldcon can operate without the vast number of willing volunteers who help us put on the convention. ConJosé would be delighted to hear from anyone who would like to volunteer to work on the convention. Please stop by the Volunteers Desk to sign up.

Please print and complete the Volunteer Release Form and bring it with you to the Volunteer Desk. If the Volunteer is under 18 years old, the form must also be signed by a parent or legal guardian, but they do not need to physically appear with the Volunteer.

Information Volunteers Need to Know

Set-Up in the Convention Center will begin on Wednesday. If you have experience driving a 15' or larger truck and will be available to help on Tuesday, August 27th, Wednesday, August 28th or Tuesday, September 3rd, and have not already communicated with Dawn Plaskon or Peggy Rae Sapienza about this possibility, please contact us.

Volunteers who arrive on site after Saturday evening, August 24th will be welcomed (and put to work) by Peggy Rae Sapienza. Volunteers expects to be co-located with Registration in the Fairmont Hotel (Room: TBD) until we move into the Convention Center on Wednesday, August 28th.

Numerous and varied prizes have been donated for Volunteers. Prizes will be randomly drawn from among the Release Forms which Volunteers have completed.
