Volunteer Application

Thank you for your interest in helping to make our Quantum Leap 20th Anniversary convention the best event it can possibly be! Please complete this volunteer application only if you're certain that you can be dedicated to the position(s) you are volunteering for.

We may receive too many applications for a particular committee, so please select multiple choices. If your application is accepted, we will e-mail you to confirm that you have been accepted as a convention volunteer, and your section will be assigned within the coming months. The volunteer duty roster will be sent out to you shortly before the convention.

Since the con is for the benefit of charity, we’re unable to "comp" memberships for volunteers, so you will be responsible for purchasing a ticket to attend the event. At the same time, we realize that you will want to enjoy the weekend’s activities, so we plan to schedule on-site volunteers for no more than a 2-hour shift each day. We also plan to express our heartfelt thanks to our committee members and on-site volunteers for all their hard work via a special Sunday evening party. (Please be aware, though, that status as a committee member and/or on-site volunteer does not include admission to the celebrity guests’ Green Room.)

Thanks again for volunteering!! This event is for the fans, and it wouldn’t happen without the support and generosity of people like YOU!
