So you want to be part of the At Con Volunteer Super Squad that helps make Zenkaikon work? The ACV Super Squad are the unsung heroes who help the staff make this convention possible. Many Zenkaikon staff, including many department heads (this one included) started out as convention volunteers. The ACV Super Squad takes on tasks that help to free up staff members who are already up to their ears in other responsibilities. You ultimately decide how long, and when, you would like to work, but we appreciate any time that you can offer no matter how long. We also reward you for the hard work that you do! Are you a parent whose kids are at the convention and you’re looking for something to do? Well, good news! We need volunteers like you to help make this an even better experience for your kids!
What the ACV Super Squad does:
The ACV Super Squad help convention staff with things like event set up, line control, badge checking, guiding attendees, and standing ever vigilant at places like workshops, panels, and the masquerade. There’s even a need for volunteers who want to help with breaking down the convention at the end of it.
What the ACV Super Squad does not do:
Squad members do not handle money, function as security, or undermine the integrity of Zenkaikon or its affiliates.
