Ohana Means Family

Our OMG!con volunteers are a part of our family, and an integral part of what makes OMG!con so fun for so many people. Almost all members of our staff were at one point volunteers, and over the years we have made immeasurable friendships. We want to extend this back to you, our current and future volunteers, and open up our family to you as well. OMG!con works to give back to our volunteers through the VolunTiers, through things like badges, hotel rooms, etc.  Come be apart of an organization that works hard to give the best that it can to our attendees, and the city of Owensboro!

Video Game

From Running video game tournaments to an impressive game check-out system, our Video Game Staff is on another level of organization!

Programming

Geneva Ged is the master wizard behind OMG!con programming. However, all good wizards have help, and this department uses a lot of help! This is a good department for someone just starting to volunteer, as this department handles badge checking, door watching, gophering, and other misc. forms of assistance! Honestly, its one of our most important jobs!
