Volunteering: Gofer Pre-Reg

Gofer Pre-Registration

Thank you very much for your interest in volunteering with us for Otakon 2016! Otakon is a huge show and we can't put it on without the help from our very dedicated team of volunteers.

This information pertains to Otakon 2016.

Due to the large number of Gofers required to help at Otakon 2016, Gofer Operations is opening Gofer pre-registration to everyone (for a limited time). Once your registration is approved, you will receive a confirmation e-mail from Gofer Ops. Please be sure that your spam filters will not block messages from

What this means:

  • When approved, you will be guaranteed a Gofer slot.
  • You do not have to stand in line for Friday morning Gofer Call.
  • You will be eligible to attend either of the Thursday Orientations.
  • You can check-in and receive your registration materials (badge, program guide, etc.) at Gofer Orientation on Thursday so you can help with Thursday Pre-Reg.
  • You will be eligible to work on Thursday for either the Matsuri or Pre-Reg check in.

Please take note:

  • You STILL need to pre-register for Otakon. Gofer Pre-Registration is separate from your convention/membership registration. You will not be able to access the Gofer Registration form until you are pre-registered for Otakon 2016.

  • Not all submissions will be accepted. We need TOP-NOTCH people for Otakon Gofers. That means you present yourself well, put Otakon's needs before your own when on duty, and carry a friendly, helpful attitude with everyone you deal with, members, staff and fellow Gofers alike. In addition, you must meet all the requirements mentioned on the Volunteering: Basics page.
  • There IS a time and number limit!
