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 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!

I have that green check mark for 2018. :) One less thing to worry about, until signing up again and the two sales. Lol

So... I tried to sign up my nephew (Who will be 16 in January) as a volunteer, but when I try to sign him up, I get this message:
"We're sorry, but you must be at least 16 years old as of June 30, 2018 to volunteer for Comic-Con International. We appreciate your interest in volunteering and hope you will try again when you meet the minimum age requirement."
All his info is up to date, and yes, even his birthdate:  JANUARY 2002
I already sent an E-mail regarding this issue, but I don't know if he'll get a chance, CC is too busy and I don't know if they even respond E-mails at this point.

 :(

If I don't succeed, can his mom take him as a child with her?

Wow...that seems quick.  Last year, I thought it stayed open for a couple of days...??

Wow is right...

Maybe they got their quota of interest a lot sooner than they expected.

Much shorter. According to last year's thread, volunteer interest list opened Nov 15, and was observed as full on November 29 (it may have been full before then). That's almost two weeks.

Forum housekeeping: I added a calendar link for the closed date for archival purposes. I also set this topic as sticky, and set the 2017 thread as non-sticky.

Ah, I'm so excited. I had to miss this year because I moved to a different country. But I'm coming back just in time for SDCC! Hopefully I can volunteer again.
