Call Out For VCON 42 Volunteers

We’re Looking for YOU!

Yes, you!

The VCON 42 team is looking for volunteers to help promote the conference over the next 3 months and to help out with this year’s epic festivities.

VCON is a fan-oriented and 100% fan-run convention and our volunteers are the most important resource we have. They are the gears that make VCON happen – without them, there wouldn’t be an event.

And because of that, we offer HUGE membership discounts to everyone who does a certain amount of volunteer work for the convention whether leading up to or at the event such as a weekend general membership ($75 value) for just $10!

If you’d like to help us make this year’s event the most amazing science fiction, fantasy and gaming event you’ve ever been to, fill in the VCON 42 Volunteer Sign Up Form.


If you have any questions, please reach out to this year’s Volunteer Liaison, Tiffany Riddell, at volunteers [at] vcon [dot] ca


This year’s VCON Volunteer Picnic will be at Trout Lake (John Hendry Park) on Sunday, August 12 from 10:00 AM4:00 PM(ish).

  • The organizing committee (ConCom) chair, vice chair, department heads and assistants are all volunteering time throughout the year and at the event.
  • And last, but by no means least, everyone who gives up a few hours of time at the event to help with important day-of tasks such as registration, security, running a workshop or whatever – they are all volunteers.
