Volunteer

In person, virtual, or hybrid we can’t do it without you. First con or 50th, one hour or dozens, we need your help. It is a great way to meet other fans and help make Balticon a fun time for all.

Email volunteers@balticon.org to volunteer or find out more about volunteering for Balticon.
