Izumicon is only possible due to volunteers so we are always looking for more people to help us make the convention a more smooth and memorable one. There are a variety of reasons to volunteer. The biggest reason being you love Japanese culture and want to help make Izumicon better, but maybe you just want to interact with like-minded people who share the same interests you do. Whatever your reason, Izumicon has a place for you.
