Comic-Con 2014 Returning Volunteer Registration Opens Today, February 4th at 9:00am!

Comic-Con 2014 - Volunteer Registration - SDCC - HeaderFor those who completed at least one volunteer assignment in 2013, you will have the first chance to register as a volunteer today, February 4, 2014!  An email from Comic-Con International with instructions on how to register online through your Member ID account was sent to you last week. We are very excited to see many returning faces for 2014, so please be sure to follow the instructions in your email for registration today.

Here’s the CCI email sent to those pre-approved for 2014.

At last – what you’ve been waiting for! Beginning at 9:00 am Pacific Time on February 4, 2014, online volunteer registration for Comic-Con International 2014 will be open to YOU, our PREAPPROVED VOLUNTEERS (those who completed at least one assignment in 2013).

Instructions: Beginning at 9:00 am Pacific Time on February 4th, you may log into your Member ID, click on the “VOLUNTEERS” tab and you will see the link for online volunteer registration. Click on the link and follow the instructions. It’s easy! You’ll get an email confirmation at the end of the registration process.

Only those on our preapproved list will be able to see the link when they log in to their Member ID.  You will have 10 days to sign up to volunteer for 2014.  Preapproved volunteer registration will close on February 13, 2014 at 5:30 pm Pacific Time.  At a later date, we will open online volunteer registration to those on the Interest List. Once we reach our limit, we will close the volunteer program and there will be no further opportunities to register to volunteer for 2014.

Hope to see you in 2014!

Our volunteer program is so popular that the Volunteer Interest List for Comic-Con 2014 reached capacity early this year. Over 11,000 of you have expressed an interest to volunteer this year and we wish we could take every single one of you! For those of you who are already on the Interest List, please keep in mind that space is extremely limited and not all of you will be accepted. Once returning volunteer registration has closed, check your email frequently for the announcement regarding Interest List registration. We anticipate that volunteer registration for those on the Interest List will reach capacity the same day that it opens.

If you did not volunteer in 2013 or did not sign up for the 2014 Volunteer Interest List, you will not be able to volunteer for Comic-Con this year, but rest assured there will be another opportunity to express your interest in the 2015 volunteer program sometime after Comic-Con 2014.  And please don’t forget about our sister show, WonderCon Anaheim! WonderCon Anaheim also utilizes a large volunteer pool and will have open volunteer registration sometime in March.

Comic-Con 2014 Volunteer Registration Info!

Comic-Con 2014 - Volunteer Registration - SDCC - HeaderComic-Con is now implementing a new program called the Volunteer Interest List. You can find this when you Log in to your Member ID Account. This does not guarantee that you’ll be volunteering for 2014, but it will give you an advantage. You’ll be notified via EMAIL when Volunteer Registration opens up… So just do it now if you plan on volunteering! Good luck!

Comic-Con uses over 3000 volunteers each year! The program is very popular and fills up quickly. Volunteer registration is done entirely online before the convention. We will not accept any volunteers on-site.

Volunteers who completed at least one assignment at Comic-Con 2013 receive priority in the online volunteer registration process and will be notified via email when returning volunteer registration opens. After returning volunteer registration is complete, online volunteer registration will open to the general public. At this time, we anticipate that volunteer registration will open to the general public in early 2014.

If you did not volunteer in 2013 and are interested in volunteering for 2014, log in to your Member ID and look for the message “Click here to sign up for the Comic-Con 2014 Volunteer Interest List.” Once you have signed up, you will be notified via email when online volunteer registration opens at a later date. The registration date and time will not be published anywhere online, and you will only be notified via email. This information will not be made public on social media sites or to the general Member ID population. Being on the interest list does NOT guarantee that you will get in, but it will give you an advantage. Registration is filled on a first come, first served basis so please be sure to sign up with a permanent email account and check it frequently.

To volunteer for Comic-Con 2014, you must be age 16 or older by June 30, 2014 and you must have a valid Comic-Con Member ID. To sign up for a Member ID, click here. Member ID registration is easy and it’s free!

If you are accepted as a Comic-Con Volunteer, you may volunteer any or all of the days of the show. Your volunteer commitment is only 3-hours on any day you choose to volunteer and you will get a free badge for that day. You choose the day(s) you want to volunteer, we choose the time and the assignment.

Assignments do not require any special skills. When you are not on assignment, you are free to enjoy the show with same privileges as a paying attendee. We do not provide housing, travel, or meals to volunteers. As a Comic-Con volunteer you can expect to have fun being a part of our Comic-Con team and knowing that you helped make it happen. Oh, and the not-available-in-any-store-one-of-a-kind volunteer t-shirt!
