Every convention is backed by a dedicated team of Volunteers and without them, the convention could not function properly. We don’t ask much from our Volunteers we just ask that you come willing to work. Don’t worry, you’ll still have plenty of time to check out the panels and see friends! We couldn’t do it without you! MCA Entertainment wants to thank you for volunteering your time to help make Rocket City Anime Con 2023 a success! Find out what it takes to pull off the
one of the newest Anime Convention in Alabama!

the convention. This includes guest announcements, events, and convention policies/practices.

If a volunteer gives their issued badge to another person, that volunteer is subject to expulsion and permanent ban from
volunteering at future Rocket City Anime Con events.
