San Diego Comic Con 2018 Volunteer Interest List

By Miclpea

The Volunteer Interest List for those who want to be a volunteer at the 2018 San Diego Comic Con is now live. The Interest List is for those who did not complete an assignment in 2017 or if you are interested in volunteering for the first time.

If you successfully completed a volunteer assignment in 2017, you will be automatically added to the Priority List. The Priority List volunteers will be given first preference when volunteer registration opens.

At a later date, those on the Priority List and the Interest List will be notified by email when volunteer registration will open. Those on the Priority List will have 10 days to volunteer before the remaining slots open to those on the Interest List. Once those slots are filled, volunteer registration will be closed. The general public must sign up for the Interest List to be considered for a volunteer assignment.

If you are unable or are not chosen for a volunteer assignment for San Diego Comic Con, you can try for WonderCon in Anaheim, March 23-March 25, 2018. WonderCon will announce their volunteer registration in early 2018.

Below are the SDCC volunteer instructions from Comic Con International’s website. We advise you to review this carefully before you log onto your Member ID account.

Sign-ups for the Comic-Con 2018 Volunteer Interest List are now open. To add your name to the list, simply log in to your Comic-Con Member ID account, select the “Volunteering” tab, and click on the link to the Interest List. Being on the Interest List does not guarantee that you will get into the volunteer program, but it does gives you an opportunity to apply. Don’t delay, sign up today – space is limited and it fills up fast!

Once you have added your name to the Interest List, you will be notified when online volunteer registration opens at a later date.
Here’s how volunteer registration works:

Comic-Con 2018 online volunteer registration will only be open to those volunteers who completed assignments in 2017 (the Priority List) and/or who have been added to the Comic-Con 2018 Interest List. Everyone on the Priority and Interest Lists will get an email notifying them of the date and time that online volunteer registration will be available to them. Registration is done through the Comic-Con Member ID system. The Priority List will have a chance to register first and will have a 10-day window in which they are guaranteed to get into the 2018 volunteer program.

After Priority List registration is over, volunteer registration will open up to the Interest List on a first come, first served basis until the program limit has been reached. Once the volunteer program has reached capacity, it will close and there will be no further opportunities to register to volunteer for Comic-Con 2018. Comic-Con volunteer registration will not be open to the general public at any time. You must be on the Priority List or Interest List to receive information about online volunteer registration.

If you are not on the Priority List or the Interest List, another volunteer opportunity you might want to check out is WonderCon Anaheim from March 23 – March 25, 2018. An announcement regarding the opening of online volunteer registration for WonderCon Anaheim will appear on the WonderCon Anaheim “Volunteers” page and on our social media sites in early 2018. Watch for it!

We thank ALL of our volunteers, past, present and future, for their help and enthusiasm in making Comic-Con International and WonderCon Anaheim great experiences for all!

Good luck to all those who plan to volunteer for either con!
