Volunteer Application

Thanks for being awesome! SoonerCon runs entirely on volunteer power. Volunteering with SoonerCon is a great way to meet fandom friends and pros and help out the community. We value the positive experience of all SoonerCon participants, and this includes maintaining the safety and security of attendees, guests, vendors, and our volunteers. For this reason, we now require that volunteer applicants complete a background screening prior to volunteering at that year’s convention.

Please take a minute to review our Volunteer Screening Policy and FAQ. For questions, feel free to email via the contact form or call us at 800-745-0398.
