MTAC is an awesome event, and it takes YOU to make it happen! Volunteering gives you a chance to see what goes on behind the scenes at your favorite anime convention. It also lets you get in FREE!

To volunteer with MTAC, you must:

  1. Fill out our volunteer application.
  2. Attend ONE pre-con volunteer meeting (listed below for both in-person and video chat).
  3. Work at least 12 hours at the event.

Volunteers work in a wide variety of areas:

  • Watching doors and checking props in Access Control
  • Answering questions and helping attendees in Customer Service
  • Getting attendees checked into the event in Registration
  • Setting up our technical equipment in Production Services
  • Photography and video work
  • Panelist assistance in Programming
  • Autograph line management in Talent Relations
  • Merchandise sales in Gift Shop
  • And plenty more!

If you are under 18 and volunteering, please print and have your parent/guardian sign this PDF waiver and bring it with you to the convention.

If you live far away or have extenuating circumstances that prevent you from attending a meeting, don’t give up hope. Contact Vol Ops, and we will work with you!

At the Con

  • Come to Volunteer Operations (Vol Ops) before working.
  • Sign your Volunteer Consent Form and pick up your volunteer badge.
  • We’ll confirm your assignment and point you to the staff you’ll be working with.
  • Remember where Vol Ops is! We’ll be in that office the whole con – day and night – for any volunteer needs. Feel free to come back and check in from time to time if you’re looking to help out in between shifts. (Be sure to fulfill your assigned hours first!)
  • Last but not least, enjoy the con! Your hard work and dedication makes MTAC what it is, and you deserve your admission badge. Get rest when you can, have fun when you’re not working, and let’s make this MTAC the best one yet!
