Volunteer

Our volunteers take time out of their busy schedules, giving their spare hours to make sure the convention runs successfully. Without them, Furnal Equinox simply wouldn’t happen. As our convention grows, we try to offer more to our attendees, and that requires us to constantly grow our volunteer team.

Volunteers often work just a few hours here and there while attending the con.

Staff

Staffing is a larger time investment, and usually involves duties before the convention as well as during. Our core team of Staff, Department Heads, and Directors work closely together to make sure the inner workings and fine details of our events go as smoothly as possible.

Staff are also Volunteers, but they are the core members of our team. They commit more time to working the convention than Volunteers, but they also receive more perks and rewards, and are assigned to a designated department under which they work. Some staff positions are very involved, while others are less so, and some positions get most of their work done in the months before the con even begins. See below to find positions that best fit you here at Furnal Equinox!
