GrandCon requires a good number of people who love gaming to come together and pool all their skills and experience to make the best hobby games show in Michigan. In order for the convention to grow we need people that believe in making GrandCon the best experience for all show goers. Volunteering is not an easy choice as we ask for hard work and commitment from our volunteers to ensure that every aspect of the show runs smoothly and everyone has a grand time.
If you feel you are up to the challenge and want to be part of a volunteer team that produces a fantastic three days of gaming then read on because we are always looking for individuals to become part of the volunteer community.
