2D Con is held annually and is 100% volunteer based, we rely on our volunteers to organize and run the event. We strive to make sure there are volunteering opportunities for everyone, even without prior volunteering experience!
Volunteering for 2D Con is a great way to help the local gaming community and meet new people!

We have a few simple expectations for our volunteers at 2D Con. As a volunteer, you must:
- Be registered for 2D Con.
- Commit to at least 4 hours of volunteering.
- Attend pre-event volunteer meeting.
- Be polite and considerate of other volunteers and event attendees.
While these are our expectations for all volunteers, your level of involvement with our event is entirely up to you! You have the freedom to decide whether you want to help with planning sessions or if you’re just helping out during the event itself.
Let us know which areas are most interesting to you and we will work with you to ensure a pleasant experience as one of our volunteers!
Volunteer perks are based on hours worked during the convention cycle. Working 2D Con events outside of the main convention will count towards these hours.
