SDCC San Diego Comic Con Volunteer Program details, straight off the presses:
“Beginning at 10:00 am Pacific Standard Time (PST) on Wednesday January 27, 2016, online volunteer registration for Comic-Con International 2016 will be open to our PRIORITY VOLUNTEERS (those who completed at least one assignment in 2015 or were pre-approved by the Volunteer Dept.). You are one of our priority volunteers.
Instructions: Beginning at 10:00 am PST on January 27, 2016, you may log into your Member ID, click on the “VOLUNTEERING” tab and you will see the link for online volunteer registration. Click on the link and follow the instructions. As usual, you’ll get an email confirmation at the end of the registration process. The 2016 Volunteer Orientation packet will be attached to the email confirmation.
Only those on our priority list will be able to see the link when they log in to their Member ID. You will have from 10:00 am PST January 27, 2016 until 3:00 pm PST February 5, 2016 to sign up to volunteer. You are guaranteed to get into the volunteer program for 2016 during this time period. At a later date, we will open online volunteer registration to those on the Interest List to fill any remaining slots. Once we reach our limit, we will close the volunteer program and there will be no further opportunities to register to volunteer for 2016.
Hope to see you in 2016!”
Last year the Volunteer Program filled up in 3 minutes. I was still able to sign up, even in those 3 minutes, and also the site crashed during that time, and I still succeeded.
Be ready before the start time, use Chrome browser if you can. Close out all other windows, no downloads, uploads or anything else playing in the background, like Pandora or Youtube. For fastest, safest, results, reset the browser an hour before. Reset the modem and router an hour before. Be ready at your computer at start time, with no other distractions. These are the keys to success I use to register for the Volunteer Program, purchase regular badges (tickets), parking spaces, Hotelpocalypse or anything else Epic Waiting Room or SDCC San Diego Comic Con related. Good Luck!
