Volunteering

Dragonflight GameCon is volunteer run: without our meeple-army of volunteers there would be no convention! We offer our deepest gratitude to all our volunteers, those who have helped in the past and those who are currently helping with the convention. We have some typical volunteering roles listed below, but if you have ideas for ways to contribute, please reach out.

Our volunteers receive special swag and admission benefits – see the bottom of this page for details.

Volunteering at Con

During the Con, there are lots of opportunities to support, including:

  • Registration desk
  • Game librarian
  • Photographer
  • Kid’s area
  • Auction staff
  • Set up & Take down
  • Event runner

Volunteering outside of Con

There are plenty of activities that take place throughout the year that help bring our convention to fruition. Many people volunteer throughout the year, at times other than during the convention.

Event Hosts vs Volunteers?

Event Hosts are volunteers. They are specialized volunteers. They run the games and events that make up the really fun part of the convention. Time requirements for Event Hosts differ from those of regular volunteers. See Event Host Info.
