Volunteers are essential to Tokyo in Tulsa, without them it would be virtually impossible to run the convention!
What You Should Know
A minimum of 15 hours is required over the course of the 4 days it takes to setup, run, and break down Tokyo in Tulsa. In return for those hours of service, volunteers are given a weekend pass along with a Minion shirt, and other benefits. Being a volunteer doesn’t mean you won’t have time to enjoy everything the convention has to offer, but it is a serious investment of your time. We need volunteers who are dedicated to making Tokyo in Tulsa the best it can be.
Long term perks also exist; we usually have a Dead Dog event, as well as quarterly events where volunteers get a discount or free entry. Not to mention, for those interested in moving up in the world, we usually recruit Support Staff and Concom straight from volunteers.
Approved volunteers will get:
- One free minion t-shirt
- One free full weekend pass
- Free meals while on shift
- Specialty access to Vendor Room and Guest Signings
Approved volunteers are required to:
- Filled out the Volunteer form before it closes on July 12th at 11:59pm ( NO EXCEPTIONS )
- ALL volunteers must attend one of our our training meetings:
8/1, Thursday night at 8pm OR 8/2, Friday morning at 8am
- Attend all required meetings – 2 for new volunteers, 1 for returning volunteers
Volunteers under the age of 18 must have prior authorization from an AD or Director before signing up. Any approved volunteer under the age of 18 will have additional paperwork that will be required for a parent or guardian to fill out prior to the minor’s meeting.
While we want everyone to have a blast, there are a few things you must know. Volunteer positions are limited. We would love to accept everyone but sometimes we get too many requests. You will be notified by email if you are accepted. If you are accepted as a volunteer, please remember that your behavior is an example to the other attendees. If your behavior is not to the standard of the Convention, Hotel or Convention Center you may lose any or all incentives earned, no longer be allowed to volunteer, and possibly be removed from the convention.
This form is for Volunteers only – Support Staff, Concom and AD’s will have a different form.
