Get Involved!

Do you enjoy attending Arisia? Would you like to help us make Arisia continue to be one of the best science fiction/fantasy conventions around?

Come volunteer!

Arisia wouldn't exist without volunteers.  Everyone, from our Corporate President or Convention Chair to the person who has just an hour at the convention to give, is an unpaid volunteer giving their time to help make the Arisia convention a success.

How do you volunteer?
