The Committee

Our Committee is voted in every year by the Elect and is responsible for running the departments to keep our events running! We welcome any feedback about our departments at any time, and it’s through your feedback that we can continue to run the things you love at future events! You can use our Contact Us form, and we’ll make sure your feedback is passed on to the right team.

Team AVCon sounds cool! How can I get involved?

Applications for the 2023-2024 Committee are now open! Team AVCon has multiple opportunities for the community to play a more significant part in shaping AVCon. Team AVCon values the uniqueness of our team and understands that when unique people work together, we can deliver extraordinary results.


Team AVCon runs events throughout the year and collaborates with the broader community and sponsors in addition to the AVCon Festival. With more events happening throughout the year, there are more opportunities for people with different levels of experience and interests to help shape AVCon in their own way. Team AVCon values the uniqueness of our team and understands that when unique people work together, we can deliver extraordinary results.

AVCon enlists the help of over 400 volunteers to assist the Elect and Committee with the delivery of AVCon’s events, including the AVCon Festival. Volunteers range in age from 16 to 60 and help out in various activities to ensure our attendees have a fantastic experience. From assisting guests in setting up card games to working the ticketing booths, there are various roles for you to take on.

There are different volunteer roles avaliable throughout all levels of the organisation. For more information about becoming a volunteer for Team AVCon, check out our Volunteer webpage below.


The AVCon membership consists of past and present volunteers who have shown their dedication to making AVCon a success. The members of Team AVCon Incorporated have a great interest in anime, video games and Japanese culture. This interest drives them to make AVCon the best it can be and ensures that AVCon remains a festival for the fans.

The Team AVCon membership meets quarterly and annually to discuss and make decisions regarding all things AVCon.

Membership requires all members to have volunteered for an event in a previous year or be on the active standing Committee. If you’re interested in becoming a member, we recommend checking out our Volunteer page and seeing how you can volunteer at future events. Successful applicants will require a recommendation by an existing member of the Team AVCon Elect, Committee Coordinator Lead or staff under a Committee Coordinator Lead.

We recommend first checking out our Team AVCon Rules of Association. If you are interested in applying, email secretary@avcon.org.au, and we will be in touch.
