Volunteering for Comic-Con International is not only fun, but also a great way to give back to the pop culture community! As a nonprofit educational organization, Comic-Con has a very important mission: to spread the awareness of, and appreciation for comics and related popular art forms, primarily through the presentation of conventions and events. Without our amazing and dedicated group of volunteers, we simply couldn’t make Comic-Con happen! So for that, we send you our sincerest gratitude.
For those who completed at least one volunteer assignment in 2013, you will have the first chance to register as a volunteer tomorrow, February 4, 2014. An email from Comic-Con International with instructions on how to register online through your Member ID account was sent to you last week. We are very excited to see many returning faces for 2014, so please be sure to follow the instructions in your email for registration tomorrow.
Our volunteer program is so popular that the Volunteer Interest List for Comic-Con 2014 reached capacity . Over 11,000 of you have expressed an interest to volunteer this year and we wish we could take every single one of you! For those of you who are already on the Interest List, please keep in mind that space is extremely limited and not all of you will be accepted. Once returning volunteer registration has closed, check your email frequently for the announcement Interest List registration. We anticipate that volunteer registration for those on the Interest List will reach capacity the same day that it
If you did not volunteer in 2013 or did not sign up for the 2014 Volunteer Interest List, you will not be able to volunteer for Comic-Con this year, but rest assured there will be another opportunity to express your interest in the 2015 volunteer program sometime after Comic-Con 2014. And please don’t forget about our sister show, WonderCon Anaheim! WonderCon Anaheim also utilizes a large volunteer pool and will have open volunteer registration sometime in March.
Thank you again to all of our volunteers. Comic-Con not the same show without you!
