If you answered yes to one or more of the above questions, we would love to have you join our staff! Staff members are the ground-floor individuals that make sure the convention runs smoothly. You can help with setup, help with organizing, help with running events, and a whole wide range of other things as a staff member for the con.
What do you get out of it? You can make tons of friends among staff and you get the satisfaction of knowing that you were part of an awesome experience for hundreds of people. That not enough? Staff members also always get a platinum-level staff badge, and we sometimes give away prizes at staff meetings. Being on staff can be a lot of fun!
Join Con Staff
Welcome to the staff application form for Anime-ZAP!! We are looking for dedicated, and motivated people with a passion for our convention! Here's your chance to give back to all the awesome things we do, and help us create amazing memories for other fans.
Please understand the commitment you are making, by reading the basic requirements. We love motivated people, but you need to be able to commit to the time and energy needed to be on staff - we love to accept the inexperienced and give you a chance at having fun while helping us too!
Perks of being on staff:
Learn new skills ranging from event management to hospitality to audiovisual technology!
Network and make friends with other great members of our community.
Unending adoration of other congoers! If you are joining staff just to get free perks, and not because you have a passion for making other people have fun, then it's probably not for you!
