Call for Volunteers:
Hey you! Yeah, YOU!!! Do you like comics? Want to help us put on our comic conventions? GREAT!!! Send us your name, contact information, any special skills that might be of help, and your T-shirt size.
At this point, if you’re asking, “What’s in it for me?” you might want to take a step back and re-think this. We do these shows for the LOVE of comics and to help support our chosen charities. The MCBA is comprised solely of volunteers, from the show organizers to the floor sweepers (who if need be are often the same people). No one receives a paycheck or profit sharing of any kind. And just like most of our comic creator guests, our dedicated volunteers are willing to do a LOT for our shows, even with no guarantee of reward.
You get into the show at no charge and get you a free MCBA volunteer shirt (but you have to work for them both). We’ll feed you. And, at the MSP ComiCon show in May, you’ll be invited to the Saturday Night Social with other volunteers and guest creators.
And you’ll get to hang out with a fun group of comic fans that are also crazy enough to volunteer to do this. And the rewards go beyond some free food (and believe us its good food!), and a T-shirt. The core volunteers become like a second family as do many of the wonderful and talented comic creators who attend our show on a regular basis.
Make no mistake, we work hard to put on one of the best comic conventions you’ll find. Our guests and dealers consistently tell us that WE are their favorite convention. It takes a lot of work and patience but we all pull together and cover each other to make it happen. If you want to be part of the team, let us know. We’ll be glad to hear from you!
We are always looking for committed, enthusiastic volunteers. The more of us that work hard to put on each show, the more free time we have at the show to have fun.
To express your interest, and in order to keep in touch with you all we’re asking you to respond with the following information.
We will be get touch via email as volunteer activities are scheduled.
