There are over 60+ departments who come together to help make Anime Expo possible, ranging from Maid Cafe to Access Control to Video Media Management and more.
A list of volunteer departments can be found here: www.anime-expo.org/department-descriptions/
Generally, department managers recruit specifically for the AX Volunteer program. Attendee Volunteers can be assigned to a wide variety of departments and tasks over the course of the convention. However, if an Attendee Volunteer has the permission of the department's manager, they can request to be assigned to a specific department.
Our department managers are currently in the process of evaluating and interviewing the open applicants. Unfortunately, this is a very time intensive process and we thank you for your patience. Please be aware that the deadline for setting AX Volunteer department rosters is May 1st.
