Volunteers & Staff
The invaders are AVCon’s team of awesome dedicated volunteers who make the convention run. Without them AVCon couldn’t exist and as such, they are the public face, and working backbone of the event.
AVCon relies on it’s wonderful volunteers each year to ensure our event runs smoothly. One of the most important volunteer faction is our photographers.
Volunteer photographers will document everything over the weekend, from the guest Photo Booth to the Gaming Hall. They will work with our lovely guests and photograph all our events on the main stage while also photographing the festival and it’s attendees.
AVCon is looking for a variety of performers to be a part of our opening and closing ceremonies to begin and conclude the AVCon Festival weekend.
AVCon is looking for well-presented, charismatic people to host AVCon events. AVCon hosts mediate, talk to audience members, interact with guests and competition entrants.
We’re looking for people with bright and bubbly personalities, excellent customer service skills and a willingness to dance and perform to join our team.
