The AnimeIowa Staff is the dedicated group of people that makes AnimeIowa possible year after year. There is a large amount of work both during the convention and throughout the year. As such, we are always looking to recruit dedicated individuals to help.

Staff members receive many benefits for their hard work including:

  • Advanced hotel booking.
  • Earn a free registration for the next Convention. (Conditions apply.)
  • Access to the Recharge Room. 
  • Early entry to the Anime Marketplace & Artists Alley.  Get in an hour before the room is open to all attendees.
  • Volunteer experience for your resume or scholarship application.
  • And a variety of other perks!
