Volunteering

Many of our attendees tell us that their volunteer experiences are what make Convention most satisfying. If you haven't volunteered before, why not try it this year? It's an opportunity to meet interesting people and see Convention in a whole new light.

On the Thursday of Convention, we will need people to help set up. During Convention, we will need people to help with Registration, Ticketing, Model Menu, and Silent Auction. On Monday evening we need people to help take down and pack up. Even one hour of your time will help.

Volunteers who give up an hour or more of their class time may be eligible to receive Priority Ticketing for classes.

All volunteers must register for volunteering (in addition to any other activities you are registering for). On your registration form, select the "Interested in Volunteering" option on your registration form and fill in the volunteering information fields, in addition to all the other fields on your form. Once you've registered, you'll be able to see and sign up for volunteering in the Volunteering Areas section of the Convention web pages.

  • If you will be taking classes on any day, choose the "With Classes" option when you register and select the days you will be attending classes. (You can volunteer on days that you're not attending classes.)
  • If you are not taking classes and commit to volunteering for two or more hours per day, please complete the Registration form as Staff so we can arrange for you to have a Staff Badge, which will allow appropriate access for your volunteering tasks.

If you have any other questions about volunteering, please contact the Volunteer Team at convention-volunteering [at] origamiusa.org.
