JOIN OUR TEAM AND HELP MAKE OUR CONVENTION SHINE!
Interested in opportunities to work with a local event and give back to your community?
Conventions take a lot of hard work and we can’t do this alone. We are looking for dedicated individuals who have a drive to create and sustain a fun, safe and all inclusive environment everyone can enjoy!
At the beginning of each year we will post announcements about positions available within our staff.
It is our wish to educate, train and teach others everything we have learned over the many years in hopes they will do the same moving forward. From Volunteering to creating new entertainment we want to help everyone achieve their full potentials and see how bright we can all shine together.
Current staff positions *COMING 3/05/20 (Link inactive)*
All applicants must be at least 18 years of age.
We look forward to hearing from you and wish all applicants the best of luck!
Safety and Volunteer Teams!
Do you want to help LUMI-CON become a safe space for everyone? Then look no further!
LUMI-CON is looking for individuals who want to enrich their convention experience and the experience of others at our events. For many years conventions have depended on dedicated, helpful and driven people who make their con homes the best they can be.
And they cannot do it without you!
On our teams, you will learn what it means to be a part of our LUMI-CON family and inner workings. You will be entrusted to help maintain a safe and informative convention for everyone who attends.
In the future, as you compile experience with us we’ll be keeping a close watch on those who go above and beyond for their fellow attendees and exceed expectations. Those individuals may be offered staff positions when they are available.
Being part of an event isn’t just about showing up and doing what you have to, it’s about making your contribution count and changing lives in our day to day operations.
There is no need for previous volunteer experience (but it is helpful).
We look forward to working with you and helping you reach your full potential in your time with us, so take the next step in making LUMI-CON a great experience!

- Set up & Tear down teams

Safety and Volunteer benefit Information:
At LUMI-CON we value your time and appreciate your help, but we also wish for you to enjoy our event as much as you wish to help it flourish!
We’ve come up with what we think is a fair system for your time below!
To be eligible for DAY PASS reimbursement you must:
- Work (1) 3-hour scheduled shift
To be eligible for a 3- DAY reimbursement you must:
- Work (3) 3-hour scheduled shifts (Total 9 hours)
- You may roll over your pass into the next year to enjoy the event!
*If for any reason you cannot work your full weekend shift we will reimburse depending on the number of shifts completed.
*The LUMI-CON Parent Pass!:
Sometimes we know a parent/guardian may accompany you to the event and may not know what to do with their time as they wait for you. Why not get them involved in your hobby and ask them to volunteer for you! With this pass option, your parent/guardian can earn your pass and theirs by completing shifts and showing them exactly why you love to be a part of cons!
To be eligible for a DAY PASS reimbursement and a Parent pass they must:
- Work (1) 3-hour scheduled shift
To be eligible for a 3-DAY PASS reimbursement and a parent pass they must:
- Work (3) 3-hour scheduled shifts (9 hours total)

At LUMI-CON we understand that family is important but sometimes they may fall short of seeing what makes our convention community so special. We hope that this parent/guardian pass option can help bridge those gaps and educate them to understand you a little better!
