Done.

Got in later than I planned.  Darn.

Oh well, I did the same thing last year, and still got a pre-con shift.   :) :)

This isn't the pre-con signup.  This is the volunteer registration.  There's no benefit to getting in early.  The only thing that matters is you get in before it closes.

Volunteers

Comic-Con 2020 returning volunteer registration is now open! Returning volunteer registration is only for those who completed at least one assignment during Comic-Con 2019 or were pre-approved by the volunteer department.


To avoid confusion regarding the "Priority List" and the "Interest List", we have made some changes for 2020!

Previously, volunteers who completed assignments at the last Comic-Con were put on the "Priority List" for the following year. We will no longer use the term "Priority" or "Priority List". These volunteers will be called returning volunteers and will register for the volunteer program during returning volunteer registration. Returning volunteer refers ONLY to those who completed an assignment during the previous Comic-Con.

The Interest List will remain the same. Anyone who has not volunteered before or is not considered a returning volunteer and would like a chance to register for the Comic-Con 2020 volunteer program can sign up for the Interest List. Signups are taken on a first-come, first-served basis until capacity is reached. There is no guarantee that getting on the Interest List will get you into the volunteer program. Returning volunteers do NOT need to sign up for the Interest List.

If you are a returning volunteer, log in to your Comic-Con Member ID account, select the “Volunteering” tab, and click the returning volunteer registration link. Returning volunteer registration closes on Monday, October 7, 2019 at 5:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT). You must register online prior to this deadline if you want to redeem your guaranteed admission to our Comic-Con 2020 volunteer program.

Volunteer Interest List

Sometime after returning volunteer registration is complete, signups for the Volunteer Interest List will open. The Interest List is for those that are interested in volunteering at Comic-Con 2020 but did not volunteer the previous year. Signups for the Interest List are open on a first-come, first-served basis until it reaches capacity. Check this page frequently for updates about Interest List signups.

Once the Interest List has reached capacity, those on the Interest List will receive an email notification with the date and time that Comic-Con 2020 volunteer registration will be available to them.  Registration will remain open for the Interest List as well as any unregistered returning volunteers, on a first-come, first-served basis until the program’s capacity is reached. At that time, the volunteer program will close and there will be no further opportunities to register to volunteer for Comic-Con 2020.

Volunteers

Comic-Con 2020 returning volunteer registration is now closed. If you are a returning daily volunteer, click "Returning Volunteers" below for additional registration options. If you did not volunteer at Comic-Con 2019 and would like to volunteer in 2020, select "Interest List Sign-Ups" below for important information.


NEW FOR 2020!

We have made changes to the daily volunteer registration program to make the registration process easier for our returning volunteers and fans who are interested in volunteering for the first time.

Goodbye Priority List and Interest List Registration! Hello Returning Volunteer and Daily Volunteer Registration!

In years past, daily volunteers who completed assignments at the previous Comic-Con were automatically placed on a “Volunteer Priority List”  and registered during “Priority Volunteer Registration”. For Comic-Con 2020, any daily volunteer who completed at least one assignment during Comic-Con 2019 is considered a returning volunteer and was able to register during returning volunteer registration. Returning volunteer registration is now closed.

New daily volunteers used to register during “Interest List Registration”. Now, that registration event will be called daily volunteer registration. During daily volunteer registration, any fan who signed up for the Interest List will have an opportunity to register for the Comic-Con daily volunteer program on a first-come, first-served basis.

Want more information about returning volunteers, the Interest List, and daily volunteer registration? Click each section below for important details!



RETURNING VOLUNTEERS

Comic-Con 2020 returning volunteer registration is now closed. The deadline to register was October 7, 2019. Returning volunteer registration was for volunteers who completed at least one volunteer assignment during Comic-Con 2019. Returning volunteers were able to redeem their guaranteed admission to the Comic-Con 2020 daily volunteer program during returning volunteer registration.

Returning volunteers who did not register during returning volunteer registration will have another opportunity to register during Comic-Con 2020 daily volunteer registration on a first-come, first-served basis. Remember, capacity is limited! You will receive an email notification when daily volunteer registration opens. You do not need to sign up for the Interest List.

If you are a returning volunteer and have any questions, please email us at [email protected]



INTEREST LIST SIGN-UPS


Comic-Con 2020 Interest List sign-ups will open soon! If you have never volunteered with Comic-Con, or if you took a break from our volunteer program, signing up for the Interest List is the first step in the process. You will not be able to register during daily volunteer registration if you have not added your name to the Interest List.

To sign up for the Interest List, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or check this page regularly for updates! We will announce here and on social media when the Interest List opens. 

IMPORTANT: The Interest List is limited in capacity. Signing up for the Interest List is based on a first-come, first served basis. Signing up for the Interest List does not guarantee you admission into the Comic-Con 2020 daily volunteer program.




DAILY VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION


Comic-Con 2020 daily volunteer registration will open at a later date. Daily volunteer registration is only for those who signed up for the Comic-Con 2020 Interest List and returning volunteers who missed returning volunteer registration.

Everyone on the Comic-Con 2020 Interest List, and any unregistered returning volunteers, will receive an email notification with the date and time that Comic-Con 2020 daily volunteer registration will open. Daily volunteer registration will remain open for the Interest List and unregistered returning volunteers on a first-come, first-served basis until the program’s capacity is reached. At that time, the volunteer program will close and there will be no further opportunities to register to volunteer for Comic-Con 2020.

If you have any questions about daily volunteer registration, please email us at [email protected]

This sounds like they're NOT going to send out emails to solicit people for the Interest List. 

Is anyone else getting that impression?

Possible. Did that happen in 2017 too?  That was the year with a one day sign up, before closing and we don't have mention of much advance hints that year in our 2018 thread.

Last year, the sequence for Interest List was more cautious.

September 14, 2019  emails sent.  Announcements via Twitter and Facebook.
September 19, 2019 CCI Volunteer page updated with date and time.
September 20, 2019 Interest List sign up goes live.

So correct me if I'm wrong, but there doesn't actually seem to be anything new process-wise. Only terminology changes, correct?

Yes, process looks the same.

I think we have a small mix of former volunteers (I lapsed last year) and first-timers on this thread.

So far, no email, just the tweet and Fb post.

They could send a reminder email after tomorrow's sale, as a gesture of hope!

I'd be a great yellow status update as well.

Last year, Interest List opened on Nov. 1st (with Returning Reg on Oct 13th and Open Reg on Nov 10th). So I can see Open Reg being sooner rather than later this time around.
