What it’s like to volunteer with Further Confusion

Further Confusion is 100% volunteer run. From first-time Gofurs, to long-time Board Members, all members of FurCon staff work on the convention in their spare time. We are constantly amazed by the positivity and dedication of our volunteers, who are truly the backbone of our event.

Volunteers receive a lot of perks!

As of FC2017, all volunteers receive free registration, or a $70 discount on sponsor or super-sponsor registration. Our dedicated Hospitality team serves up free hot meals for our volunteers every day of the convention. Hotel booking is easier than ever when you help us out; our staff room block allows you to easily book a room without rushing on release day. And at the end of a long day, we’re delighted to offer our volunteers front of line privileges at our main and second stage events.

Volunteering doesn’t have to be a huge time commitment!

We work hard to make sure that our volunteers can find balance to enjoy the con themselves as well as helping out — most at-con volunteer expectations are for 8-12 hours across the convention, or 4 hours per day or less, and there are also plenty of entirely-pre-con positions. We’re happy to help you find a position that fits your schedule.

Meeting schedule

We encourage our volunteers to attend monthly meetings, either in person or remotely. Ability to attend meetings is not a requirement of volunteering; its just helpful! Our volunteer meetings are typically held on the third Saturday of each month, at 1PM. Here are the dates and locations of our upcoming meetings:

Saturday, October 21, 2017 Hilton San Jose
2nd Floor Santa Clara Room
Saturday, November 18, 2017 Hilton San Jose
2nd Floor Santa Clara Room
Saturday, December 16, 2016 Billy DeFrank LGBTQ Community Center, Ballroom
Saturday, January 6, 2018 Billy DeFrank LGTBQ Community Center, Ballroom




Note: Regrettably, Further Confusion is unable to offer crash space to volunteers. Volunteers who were planning to rely on this space should make other housing arrangements for the con. We apologize for the inconvenience.
