Volunteer Staff Openings

Membership Department

Registration Line Control Staff

Registration Line Control staff are our feet on the ground to help keep our Registration lines running smoothly. From load-balancing lines to answering questions, if you enjoy a quick-paced and adaptive environment, this position is for you. The majority of this position will require you to be on your feet for extended periods of time, however, we can accommodate special needs as necessary, with advance notice. Applicants must be friendly but loud when required. Be ready to adjust to a dynamic environment and be ready to think on your feet. Please contact membership@sakuracon.org  if you are interested in staffing for this position.

Registration Staff

Registration is always looking for more general staff. As the first contact with most attendees, customer service is paramount to being a successful Reg staffer. Previous computer skills, cash handling skills, and extensive customer service skills are a must. However, we do have a few positions available for clerical work as well. Please contact registration@sakuracon.org if you are interested in this position. This position requires you to be 18 years old or older.

Publicity Department

Info Booth Staff

Volunteers in our info booth answer attendee questions and help direct folks to where they need to be. Located in high traffic areas, volunteers at our info booths get to see and meet a wide range of attendees and curious onlookers. Great opportunity for first time volunteers, particularly students and extroverts. This position requires good customer service skills, a calm head, and the ability to solve problems, and is open to volunteers aged 16 and up. (Volunteers under the age of 18 must have an attending adult, but the adult does not have to volunteer.) Shifts are available Thursday through Sunday, and volunteers must complete a minimum of 16 hours volunteer time. Please email info.manager@sakuracon.org if you’d like to apply or have questions.

Programming Department


The Programming Department is actively looking for Room Moderators to help the 2023
convention run smoothly!
Some volunteer positions are more ‘behind the scenes’ and take up valuable convention
time, whereas being a Room Moderator puts you right in the action with the ability to
watch panels while you volunteer!
Room Moderators serve as the connection between attendees, room content, and the
Sakura-Con staff. They ensure a seamless experience and the safe operation of room
content in their designated panel room, enforce convention rules, act as a liaison between
room content providers and Sakura-Con staff, and record information about panels. All
together this is what helps ensure the Programming Department can provide the best
content year after year!

Room Moderator Requirements:
Be responsible, helpful, and show up for all required meetings and shifts.
Be able to work a minimum of 16 hours during the convention.
Be comfortable talking with large numbers of people, problem-solving in groups,
and taking charge to resolve problems.
Be familiar (or be dedicated to becoming familiar) with the convention rules.
Must be at least 18 years of age.
Must be physically capable of standing for long periods of time and walking long
