Get Involved!

There’s a ton of ways to get involved with Kogan Con! Such as… 


Want to get involved with the Kogan Con Community?

Kogan Con is a non-profit event, so all of staff are volunteers! Volunteers are the lifeblood of the convention as much as the attendees are. Our staff works hard to be everywhere all at once, but unfortunately, that is just not possible. This is why we need volunteers! People with free time to help the hour-to-hour operations of the convention run smoothly so everyone can have a fun, safe, and nerdy weekend.

Every 4 hours of volunteer earns you….

1. General Admission badge cost refunded to you (Up to $15) and Volunteer Exclusive Kogan Con Swag


2. One 50% coupon off a Kogan Con Merch Item and and Volunteer Exclusive Kogan Con Swag

  • Door Badger: Checking for badges at different events and entrances to the convention
  • Registration Help: Helping attendees get registered and helping the registration staff keep everything running smoothly
  • Runner: Assisting various departments with general upkeep and tasks of their area to keep the convention running smoothly and on schedule.
