Join Furrydelphia Staff
Staff are a vital part of how our convention operates. We rely on volunteers to dedicate their time and expertise to our convention to help make a great experience for everyone to enjoy.
Things we look for in a Good Staff Member.
- Energetic and Willing to help the Convention and the Fandom
- Prompt and Responsive when performing their duties
- Your willingness to try something new.
We are diverse and new.
Furrydelphia was established in 2017 by a group of Philly Locals who wanted a convention in their backyard. For most of us, this was the biggest show we've ever put on, and even more so it was some of our first shows we've put on. We're looking for people who want to grow with us, and more importantly try something new with this convention, not stick to the same old boring shows.
We have flexible schedules and time commitments.
We understand people come to these conventions to have fun, which is why we work with our staff to make sure they get to enjoy every bit of the convention that they want to see. We require 16-18 hours of time throughout the course of the convention weekend, but most of our staffers stay on for the majority of the weekend!
