New England's largest and most diverse science fiction and fantasy convention
January 16-19, 2015


Volunteering for load-in and load-out earn double hours, so six hours of work will earn a convention membership. Stop by the volunteer lounge and fill out a timesheet to make sure you get credit.

Sign up here to volunteer!

We want you to join Team Arisia. Just fill out the our volunteer form so that we can count you in.

The Volunteer Lounge will be in the Quincy room on the lobby level, near Starbucks. Be sure to come in for your timesheet, T-shirt, and nifty swag. Hang out and help decorate the Arisia 2015 staff poster. Volunteer Lounge is also where you can obtain your official volunteer, staff, and other Arisia ribbons.

Get Free Stuff

Working even one hour at Arisia this year means you can get some cool swag.

Volunteers who work eight hours will get a free T shirt at the convention (only available to volunteers), twelve or more hours earn a free membership to next year's convention. If you work even more hours there are more benefits.

Volunteers who help on Wednesday (truck loading), Thursday (load-in and set-up), Friday (load-in and set-up ONLY, generally until 3 PM), Monday (tear-down and load-out ONLY, generally after 3 PM) or Tuesday (load-out and truck unloading) will get those hours doubled. You could earn all your hours for a free membership for Arisia 2016 and never miss a minute of Arisia 2015!!

If you'd like to help with loading or unloading the truck, you can follow the progress of the truck at

Just being a volunteer can bring its own satisfaction. Without volunteers, we wouldn't have the convention that is Arisia. Everyone, from our Corporate President, Convention Chair to the person who has just an hour at the convention to give, is an unpaid volunteer giving his or her time to help make the Arisia Convention a success.
