VOLUNTEER

Conventions with out volunteers are like Peanut Butter without Jelly, Rock & Roll with out a Drummer, or like the Seasons without Summer .

Come and be part of a fantastic weekend of fun and entertainment!

Volunteering for a convention like  M7 Con, is a great way to give back to the community, meet new & interesting nerdy friends, and be a part of this amazing convention! We would be nothing without our volunteers, and you can help M7 Con be even bigger and better for years to come!

Volunteers must work at least 4 hours per day. Some may be split shifts. You will receive a volunteer badge which MUST be worn while volunteering.

Volunteering does not guarantee access to the guests.

Volunteers will not have access to any of the VIP only events such as the dinner, meet and greet, or Q & A.

Volunteer positions will include registration, bag check if applicable, checking wristbands at door for all but VIP events. 

On occasion a volunteer may be asked to be a gofer to acquire items needed for a guest, or attendee.
