–Volunteer applications are now closed–

Izumicon is a fan run convention in Oklahoma – people just like you make the show happen year after year and we couldn’t be more grateful!

In addition to all of the great perks such as badges, t-shirts, and discounts, you can join a huge family and contribute to creating a wonderful experience for attendees and guests alike.

What is expected of Izumicon staff?

  • Staff members are required to work a minimum of 18 hours throughout the 3 day weekend. Yearly staff meetings also count for one hour per meeting and there are 4 per year.
  • Each department has different goals and requirements you will need to meet. Once you have turned in your application, come to a staff meeting and chat with the directors and veteran staff members to find out what your specific job will be like.

Is there an age requirement?

  • You must be over the age of 16 to be a part of the Izumicon staff. Those who are between the ages of 16 – 17 will need a Parental Consent Form on file with us by the time of the convention in order to be considered.
  • Some departments, such as Guest Relations and those that deal with adult content may have higher age restrictions.

Does Izumicon cover expenses, accommodations or other expenses?

  • You will be responsible for covering any travel/expenses/accommodations you require. We do suggest you take advantage of our group rate at the Renaissance OKC Hotel if you need hotel accommodations.

Please attend at least two staff meetings, so you will be prepared to volunteer! Meetings are held at 4:30pm on the following Saturdays in the Cox Center, and orientation/interviews are conducted after the meeting ends for departments that require it.
