Volunteering at Genericon is a great way to give back to your favorite college-student-run con and will now be much more structured. In previous years, you could anticipate long hours and late night shifts. With our departure from 48-hours of convention, we can now have a significantly more pleasant experience for our volunteers. The longest possible shift we now offer is 8 hours in one day, with two 4 hour blocks with a one hour break in between.
- Guard duty
- Sitting in on showings or the dance
- Handling the registration table
- Line control during autograph signings
