Anime Fusion is a non-profit convention that is run entirely by volunteers. It takes a lot of dedicated team members to keep Fusion running, and we need your help! Anyone interested in joining staff is invited to attend a staff meeting or contact us by email.
 

What's the difference between at-con volunteers and staff?

You might have volunteered at a convention before - doing tasks at the event in exchange for prizes. Anime Fusion offers a volunteering program at our convention as well. See the Volunteers page for more information on volunteering at the convention.
 

Staff, on the other hand, work on the convention year-round. The various departments are responsible for planning every aspect of the convention, from the layout of the rooms to the lighting of the cosplay contest stage. We have monthly staff meetings where we check in on how everything is going and help each other out wherever we can. It's a great way to meet other anime fans in the community and make new friends, while making a direct contribution to a convention you love and helping it run smoothly. If there's something new you'd like to see at Anime Fusion, or something you wish would change, joining staff is the best way to make it happen!
 

Staff Perks

Staff do not earn prizes like at-con volunteers, but they enjoy several other perks:
 

- A reduced registration rate of $25 their first year on staff, and comped registration in the following years
- A discounted rate on hotel rooms at the convention venue
- Access to the staff lounge during the convention with snacks and beverages
- An invitation to the Sunday night staff pizza party after the convention
- Ability to run for the Board of Directors and vote in the annual election
- Treats and social time at staff meetings and events throughout the year
- The feeling of accomplishment that comes from working with great people to create something special for your community!
 

Staff service is also a fun way to earn volunteer hours for your job or school credit, and it looks great on a resume! All staff work pre-scheduled hours at the convention, so you're free to enjoy the event the rest of the weekend. If you want to see Anime Fusion continue to make thousands of anime fans happy for years to come, please consider helping us make it happen. No experience? No problem! Our department heads and other experienced leaders are happy to help train you, and find a place where you can make a valuable contribution. We all started out as volunteers ourselves.
