Apply as Convention Volunteer

You must have a Tabletop.Events (TTE) account in order to apply to volunteer.  You can find instructions on Creating an Account here.

Many conventions provide volunteer opportunities for convention attendees.  Some conventions will allow individuals to volunteer in exchange for a badge, while others will require a badge purchase first. 

Volunteering is handled at a Tabletop.Events account level rather than a convention badge level. Therefore, each TTE account will only be able to sign up one person as a volunteer.  If you are wishing to sign up with a friend, spouse, etc. each volunteer must apply from their own TTE account.  You will not be able to apply for multiple slots of the same shift from one TTE account.
