Become a Volunteer

The Minnesota Comic Book Association (MNCBA) is a Federally-recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation staffed and run entirely by volunteers. We are always excited to have friendly and enthusiastic volunteers join our team! Whether your passion is for comic books, the community, or being a part of something bigger, the Minnesota Comic Book Association (MNCBA) may be the place for you!

Event volunteers are provided free admission, lunch, and access to the green room area(s) where they may encounter some of their favourite comic creators! Volunteering with us is also a great opportunity to learn more about the comic book industry, as well as make new friends and network. Many of our volunteers are directly connected to the comic book industry and/or creators themselves.

Most of all — you can feel good about helping others while having fun!

What kinds of volunteer opportunities are available? What if I'm not local?

There are a variety of areas in which your help can make a difference, even if you are not a resident of Minnesota or the Minneapolis-Saint Paul metro area! Some examples include:

Are there any requirements?

We welcome people from all backgrounds and abilities. We strongly believe that each of us brings something unique to the table — the volunteers are the MNCBA. There are no minimum time requirements or membership fees for general volunteers. You must agree to abide by our policies.

While we are a family-friendly organization, we do ask that all volunteers applying on their own be a minimum of 15 years of age. Anyone under 15 years of age who wishes to volunteer must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times. The parent or guardian must be the person applying to volunteer, and must disclose that a child will be accompanying them when the application is submitted.

Sounds awesome; I'm interested! How do I sign up?

The first step to becoming a volunteer is to download the PDF application and fill it out completely. Be sure to indicate your areas of interest, and any special skills you have to offer, so that the opportunities we share with you are tailored to your preferences. For setup and event work, do not forget your availability!


Once completed, email your application to the address below:

You can expect a response to your application from one of our administrators within 24-48 hours, except the days immediately preceding, during, and following an event. If you would like to volunteer for a specific event, please apply at least two weeks prior to the event to give sufficient time for processing, onboarding, and any training. After your application is processed, you will receive an email invite to Point.

The second step to becoming a volunteer is to accept the email invite, create your Point account, and complete your online profile. Using the Point website or mobile app (available for both Apple and Android users) you will be able to view meeting and event schedules, sign up for shifts, and receive messages about upcoming opportunities to volunteer. You will also receive important updates and reminders.

That's it! We hope you will consider joining our team, and look forward to hearing from you!
