Footwear – please wear comfortable shoes.

Casual Cosplay is permitted however Crew vest must be worn and visible. All costumes must be approved in advance to ensure it does not limit your ability to perform your duties.

Practice good personal hygiene. Avoid using excessive amounts of perfumes, colognes, and/or hairsprays that may cause a problem for allergy sufferers.

Volunteers are responsible for dressing according to this policy for their shifts and checking with supervisors about dress that is appropriate and safe to wear. In the case of a different dress requirement based on an activity or event, volunteers are responsible for ensuring they have the appropriate clothes for the shift.


Volunteers are needed in three overarching categories: 1. Safety and security 2. Show and vendor support 3. Parking

Although specific shift duration may vary slightly, planning calls for volunteers to work a six hour shift. You can volunteer to work one (6 hours) or two shifts (12 hours) per day. You can also volunteer to work two different shifts on the same day, yet in different categories. You can volunteer to work one day (Saturday or Sunday only) or both days (Weekend).

Volunteers working more than six hours in any given day will be provided a no cost meal voucher redeemable at cafeteria sales inside the arena. Water will be provided to all volunteers at no costs. Volunteers working a single shift, can attend AnchorCon for free, the morning of or afternoon of your assigned shift.

During the AnchorCon, a volunteer coordinator and events table will be set-up inside the arena. You will report here prior to, and after, your shift. If working multiple shifts or multiple days, the same applies.

Volunteers will be asked to attend a safety briefing at the arena a day or two before the event—day and time to be announced well in advance. This will be your opportunity to receive a volunteer briefing, volunteer information packet, and ask pertinent questions.

During your assigned shift, you will be provided a distinctive lanyard that you must display--this clearly identifies you as an event volunteer. The clothing you wear must be neat, clean, and respectful of all individuals.
