Who is Team AVCon?

Team AVCon is the volunteer-run non-for-profit group behind AVCon. Since 2002, AVCon has always been community-driven. The Elect, Committee, and membership are enthusiastic, nerdy, and passionate volunteers. Every year, Team AVCon recruits volunteers of all ages and experiences to help make our main event and all our mini-events the best they can be for the wider community.

How Can I Join Team AVCon?

In 2022, Team AVCon will be running multiple mini-events to lead up to our main event. This opportunity allows 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.

Volunteer Pool

Team AVCon has created the volunteer pool where you can sign up to help volunteer at AVCon’s mini-events throughout the year. Invaders assist the Committee and Staff by taking on various roles throughout the mini-events, from setting up gaming tournaments to marshalling attendees. You don’t have to volunteer for each mini-event, however, volunteering at mini-events grants you the following perks:

  • Free entry into the mini-event
  • A shift at a mini-event counts as a shift at the main event which allows you to accumulate shifts to gain access the AVCon Afterparty (accessible after 3 completed shifts).

The Volunteer Pool form is available below and accessible from here (this link will redirect you to the Google Form). If you have any questions, please reach out to [email protected] or through our Contact Us page.

AVCon enlists the help of over 400 volunteers to assist the Elect and Committee with the delivery of AVCon’s mini and main events. Volunteers’ range in age from 16 to 60 and help out in various activities to ensure our attendees have a fantastic experience.
