Truck loading on Wednesday, setup on Thursday & Friday until 3 PM, tear-down on Sunday evening & Monday, and truck unloading on Monday & Tuesday count as double, so you can earn a membership without missing any of the con. For more information, contact us. You may not transfer an earned membership.

Food Services Need You!

Arisia provides free food in Consuite, Green Room, and Staff Den.  Con Suite serves all attendees, Green Room is restricted to participants and panelists, and Staff Den is for staff working the convention this year.  Cleaning up and the restocking of snacks and beverages are the fundamental tasks in all three rooms.  Working in the Consuite is a great way to connect with the attendees of Arisia while providing much needed help.  The Green Room is where the pros go to recharge between their professional duties, and the Staff Den serves a similar purpose for staff members, so volunteering there also involves helping to maintain the room's status as a haven from the bustling fandom outside its doors.  We have lots of people to feed and we have a great time doing it, so please join our team!  You can email to ask questions and/or volunteer for any of these positions.
