Volunteering

Interested in further supporting FangCon? Want to learn more about what makes a convention run? Want a chance at some pretty snazzy prizes? This is the page for you then! Behind the scenes we have volunteers who make up the backbone of FangCon. Any amount of time you can give is helpful, whether it's an hour or all day. We also like to give our volunteers tokens of our appreciation which can include exclusive prints, t-shirts, and other goodies that will be determined closer to the con date. These rewards will be based on the number of hours you dedicate to volunteering. If you'd like to volunteer, please click the link below and fill out the form. This form lets us get to know you and what area you can best help with. If you have any questions, please feel free to email Timber Wolf at wolf_wise@msn.com.
