Capricon is run for fans by fans. Without the efforts of the Convention Committee and a horde of helpful fans, there wouldn’t be a Capricon. If you have a little time you can help keep Capricon going. All you need is a willingness to help out. We can find something you can do in the time you have available.
If you would like to do a little more and volunteer 12 hours, you can have the cost of your badge reimbursed. The hours for some tasks count double toward reimbursement.
