Join ConCom

MisCon is always looking for help. We're looking for interested, dedicated people who want to work with our team to make MisCon better year after year.

If you are interested in joining ConCom, or just helping at MisCon this year, start by looking over the ConCom structure above and reviewing the Volunteer information on our site. Then complete the volunteer application to let us know you're interested. And if you're interested in dedicating time throughout the year, come to our next ConCom meeting. Meetings are held at the Holiday Inn Missoula Downtown in Missoula, MT on the first and third Wednesday of the month June through January, then every Wednesday February through May.

While we are looking for all kinds of help on ConCom, here are some dedicated positions we are most interested in filling:

Marketing and Publicity

MisCon is looking for additional graphic designers to help the design team with items from web site graphics, to game day posters, to decorations to be used on site at MisCon. We are also looking for an individual to work on production of video clips and promotional material for MisCon. Miscon is also in need of writers and editors for promotional materials.
