Are you looking for a way to be more involved with CON.TXT? How about volunteering at the con?

Volunteering can be a great way to participate in the con if you're new or feeling nervous. You'll have a place to be, designated things to do, and tasks that can range between social, lightly-social, and hardly-social-at-all.


Security/registration - check that everyone coming into the con space has a badge, loan out Upsuite badges, give panels their 5 minute warning. This is a seated assignment. You will always be working with another volunteer with a concom member nearby. Volunteers needed all day Friday-Sunday.


Downsuite set up - help concom members and other volunteers set up the Downsuite. Volunteers needed Friday morning before panels start.

Fan Fair set up and staffing - help concom members and other volunteers set up and staff the Orphans table during the Fan Fair. Volunteers needed Saturday afternoon.
Breakdown - help concom members and other volunteers pack up the Upsuite and the Downsuite after the con is over. Volunteers needed Sunday afternoon.

If you would like to volunteer, please fill out this survey  by July 18th to let us know your job preference(s) and what time slots you are available.

Hello! I received a scholarship for CON-TXT, which comes with a volunteer component. Is there a certain number of hours I need to contribute?

We would like each scholarship recipient to volunteer for at least two hours during the con. If you want to volunteer more hours, we'd love to have you, but it's not expected or required.

Congrats on the scholarship!
