20 FEBRUARY 2012
And you'd better act now because from the sound of the email CCI sent out, volunteering at San Diego Comic Con is the new Ivy League.
"When volunteer registration closes, the Volunteer Department staff will go through the applications and prioritize first by returning volunteers, then by new volunteer applicants (starting with earliest date/time stamp). Confirmations will be sent to those who are accepted into the program within 10 business days. "Not Accepted" notices will also be sent within 10 business days."
If only general registration prioritized returning attendees. I can't provide any first-hand testimonials on what volunteering actually entails because I've never done it - but it is one way to ensure you see the Con. Which means, of course, that competition is fierce. Instructions are in the email everyone with a Member ID received, repeated here:
"Visit https://secure2.comic-con.org/memberid/ and login to your Member ID account. At the bottom of the "Member ID Change Menu" you will see a Volunteer button next to "Volunteer for Comic-Con 2012". Click this button and complete your application."
