Volunteers

We need you!

MidSouthcon is a non-profit organization that is run entirely by volunteers. We needs volunteers in almost every department we run. There are many opportunities available to volunteers at every level.

To be a volunteer you must be at least 13 years old. Volunteers under 18 must have permission from a parent or guardian. All volunteers will be required to sign a liability waiver (volunteers under 18 must have their parents sign).

Benefits of volunteering: All volunteers who sign up and work at least one shift will get access to our Amenities Room for the weekend where we provide drinks, snacks, and a few hot meals.

  • Volunteers who sign up in advance to work 12 hours will receive a free weekend membership.
  • Volunteers who sign up in advance to work 8 hours will receive EITHER a weekend membership for $10 OR a free MSC tshirt*.
  • Volunteers who sign up in advance to work 4 hours will receive a weekend membership for half price.
  • Additionally, volunteers who work 16 or more hours will receive a free weekend membership as well as a free tshirt*.

*free tshirt is based on availability and sizes are not guaranteed.

 

BE AWARE that volunteering is a commitment on your part. Once you sign up for a shift you are expected to be at that shift on time and ready to work. Failure to show up for assigned shifts could result in confiscation of your badge and being banned from further volunteer activities at future conventions.

To sign up as a volunteer just fill out the form below. Any questions you might have can be emailed to volunteers@midsouthcon.org. We also have a Facebook group you can join for questions and information at https://www.facebook.com/groups/mscvolunteers/ .

This will also be your convention registration! You do not need to fill out the regular registration form unless you need to register non-Volunteer family or friends!

Once you have submitted this form you will be directed to our Volunteer Matters log in page. ***If you volunteered in 2017, DO NOT make a new account, use your account log in from last year. (If you have forgotten your account name, you can email volunteers@midsouthcon.org and we can look it up for you.) If you are a new volunteer, create an account. Once your account is confirmed, you will be able to log in to see all the available volunteer opportunities. After you have finished signing up for shifts you'll receive an e-mail detailing what awards you have earned based on your commitment. If you owe any fees toward your registration, you'll be sent instructions and a special payment link based on the hours you have committed to.
