What is required to become a Gofer?
In order to pre-register as a gofer you must also complete your pre-registration to attend Otakon. Though we may take a limited number of at-con volunteer signups, if you're interested in volunteering with us we STRONGLY URGE you pre-register. We do have a cap on the number of volunteers we accept so pre-registering is the only way to make sure we have a spot for you. We can process your registration at the Friday morning Gofer Orientation, if necessary.
What will you need to bring with you?
A final word.
Many Otakon staffers, including con-chairs, section chiefs and department heads, started as gofers.
