We Still Need Volunteers!

If you've planned out your convention schedule and find yourself with a few hours to spare, or perhaps more... why not volunteer under the big top?

We have a number of volunteer positions and shifts available to meet just about anyone’s schedule. Our dealers room needs assistants. Our fursuit parade needs people to make sure the fursuiters stay on course. Our masquerade will need people behind the scenes to help our performers. AV and IT need people to run cable, run soundboards, and do other technical tasks. And we can’t do it without you!

Our staff are also constantly on the lookout for new faces to fulfill even bigger roles. If you have your eye on a staff position, volunteering is a great way to get our attention.

All of our volunteers get a special volunteer button to wear with pride. We also offer additional rewards for those who are willing to go the extra mile for us:

  • If you volunteer for 8 hours over the course of the convention, you’ll get a free T-shirt.
  • For 12 hours or more you'll get a free admission to FE 2015!

If you're interested, simply e-mail us at volunteer@furnalequinox.com and tell us a little bit about yourself. Our volunteers coordinator will also be at Registration, so if you're interested in a position, stop by and chat with us. We’d love to have you working behind the scenes!

Go Behind The Scenes and Volunteer

Perhaps you've attended Furnal Equinox for a few years now, seen all the big events, and you're eager to get a different perspective on the life of a convention.

Why not step behind the curtain, and look at what it takes to put on the show?

We are looking for responsible volunteers to help us out at the convention. We are always in need for volunteers, whether it's to set up or teardown a room, do a food run to make sure that our dealers are properly fed, or make sure that our fursuiters don't fall and hurt themselves. All of our volunteers receive buttons for their effort, and if you put in enough hours, you'll be eligible for rewards such as T-shirts and free memberships to next year's con.

If you're interested in helping out, send us an e-mail at volunteer@furnalequinox.com. We'll talk with you about your preferences. As we get closer to the convention, we'll work to develop a schedule that works for you.

Putting on FE takes a lot of work. If you don't believe us, go check out this video filmed at FE 2013...

Volunteer At The Con

You're probably already planning your schedule and the panels you want to attend at FE 2013, since we've posted ours. But if you have a few free hours, or perhaps plenty of free time... join our volunteer cohort, and help make the battle of putting on Furnal Equinox an easy victory!

We don't ask for any previous experience — just the motivation and desire to give the convention a helping hand. We have a number of volunteer positions available, in roles such as setup and teardown, transportation, registration, the hospitality suite, dealers room, fursuit parade, video gaming, our new Art Show and more!

In appreciation for any effort no matter how small, all of our volunteers get a special volunteer button to wear with pride. However, we do have additional rewards for those who are willing to go the extra mile for us. If you volunteer for 8 hours over the course of the convention, you’ll get a free T-shirt, and for 12 hours or more you'll get a free admission to FE 2014.

We'd love to have you! Simply e-mail us at volunteer@furnalequinox.com and tell us a little bit about yourself. We'll work around your schedule so that you can enjoy the convention as well. If you don't have time to send us an e-mail before the convention, just come to con ops at the con itself and we'll find a way for you to help!

Volunteer With Valour At FE 2013

The volunteers and staff of Furnal Equinox really are our soldiers in the trenches: they're out on the front lines each and every day helping Furnal Equinox happen successfully.

Their assistance is critical — without our volunteers, our con simply could not be the success it has been. So consider joining them this year. There's plenty of ways for you to help!

For example, if you're flying in early Thursday or not leaving until late on Monday, consider helping us out with setup and teardown. If you're good at managing a steady stream of people, Registration might need you. If your eyes light up at computer and audio gear, you should consider joining our AV team. Just have a few minutes to move a few chairs around or grab some food? Be a gofer and do a run for us!

If you haven't volunteered for a convention before or if you're only able to commit for just an hour or two, we still welcome your help. Even a couple of hours of service helps us more than you can know. For those who put in several hours, you'll also receive increasing rewards, including a T-shirt and free memberships to next year's con! And if you're interested in being part of Furnal Equinox's team as a staff or concom member, volunteering is a great way to get our attention.

For more details, check our Volunteer page, and if you're interested in helping out, send us an e-mail at volunteer@furnalequinox.com. We'll talk with you about your preferences, as we get closer to the convention, we'll work to develop a schedule that works for you.

FE needs your help! Show your valour, and volunteer today.

We Need You For 2013!

Next year FE is getting even bigger as we move to a new venue, with much more programming and events planned. But we need your help to make them happen!

We're recruiting furries who want to provide time and resources to helping make FE 2013 a great success! Now is the time to stand up and be counted!
