It is NOT TOO LATE to volunteer for Gen Con. Volunteer now!
EVERYONE MUST COMPLETELY FILL OUT THIS FORM, even if you are a returning volunteer who filled out a form last year.
Thank you for your help and understanding!
Volunteering for True Dungeon at Gen Con has some great benefits. Not only will you get to see all the fun happening behind the scenes at True Dungeon, you will also make new friends with some really cool gamers who also volunteer. In addition, the following benefits are available:
HIGHLIGHTED BENEFITS IN 2017
1) Most Volunteers Receive a Stipend to Help Cover Con Expenses
Depending on the position you fill, you will receive a check at the end of Gen Con for the amount below:
Certified Coach or DM: $250 (full-time) / $100 (part-time)
Specialized Role*: $150 (full-time) / $75 (part-time)
Local Install Group: $100 (full-time) / N/A (part-time)
General Volunteer: $100 (full-time) / $50 (part-time)
To sign up for either one of these certifications, select that job as a preferred position on the volunteer sign-up page, and you will be contacted later with additional information. If you work all your scheduled hours at Gen Con, you will receive your stipend check at the end of your Sunday shift.
The online certification process will be available in early Summer of 2017. It will involve a series of online reading assignments, videos and exams. More information will be released soon.
2) Volunteers Get a FREE limited-edition token!
Full-time volunteers will receive a free Ultra Rare, limited-edition, volunteer-exclusive token at the end of their shift on Sunday! Part-time volunteers will receive a slightly less powerful Rare version of the same token! Shown above are the tokens you can receive free for volunteering. These are cool items, and they should be a big hit with collectors.
3) Full-Time Volunteers Get a Spot in an Adjacent Hotel
All full-time volunteers get a spot in a 4-person hotel room adjacent to the Gen Con. This is a really nice benefit since those hotel rooms are very hard to come by.

IMPORTANT NOTE: ANYONE interested in volunteering must fill out this form — even if you filled out the online form in the past. We must make sure your information is correct, and the only way we can do that is to have you fill out this form again.
Due to the number of volunteer applications we receive every year we use a number of sorting functions to assign people to roles. Please complete the form to the best of your ability to insure that we can schedule you in the appropriate role.
All volunteers (and prospective volunteers) MUST fill out all the applicable fields. This information will be kept secure, and is used to select and schedule all volunteers.
