Get Involved

KuroNekoCon is a 100% volunteer-run event. From the most involved on the Board of Directors, to the last minute day-of volunteers, no one receives monetary compensation for the time they donate to the convention. It’s people like you who decide they want to step in to make something better that make this convention possible. No matter how little or how much time you have to dedicate, there’s an opportunity for you to make an impact.

Help make a difference in your anime community!

General/Board Meetings: For the purposes of transparency & to help keep everyone on the same page, our board & general meetings are on the same days. These meetings are open to the public! If you’re interested in KNC Staff, or just want to see how things are run, please stop by.


Our meetings are now held online in our Attendee Discord Server.
