We want you to join Team Arisia. Just fill out the our volunteer form so that we can count you in!

Team Arisia Headquarters will be located in the Quincy room on the lobby level, near Starbucks. Be sure to come in for your staff ribbons, timesheet, T-shirt, and nifty swag. Hang out, relax, and enjoy some snacks!.

Why Join Team Arisia?

  • All volunteers get a cool Arisia water bottle to keep you hydrated at the convention.
  • Eight hours of volunteering earns you a free staff T-shirt at the convention (only available to volunteers)
  • Twelve or more hours earn you a free membership to next year's convention.
  • Volunteers who help for at least 6 hours on Wednesday (truck loading), Thursday (load-in and set-up), and/or Friday (load-in and set-up ONLY, generally until 3 PM), are eligible to earn a Arisia 2016 (or 2017) membership. Make sure you get your timesheet signed!
  • You could earn all your hours for a free membership for Arisia 2017 and never miss a minute of Arisia 2016!! Just help out Monday (tear-down and load-out ONLY, generally after 3 PM) or Tuesday (load-out and truck unloading) for at least 6 hours to earn next year's membership!
  • Just being a volunteer can bring its own satisfaction. Without volunteers, we wouldn't have the convention that is Arisia. Everyone, from our Corporate President, Convention Chair to the person who has just an hour at the convention to give, is an unpaid volunteer giving their time to help make the Arisia Convention a success.
  • If you'd like some specific ideas about where to volunteer, check out our Help Wanted page or let us know at volunteers@arisia.org what you're interested in working on.
  • We have room on our Org Chart, so come join Team Arisia!
