Attention All Volunteers!

July 25 - 27, 2019

San Jose, California

The Westin San Jose

Live in the San Francisco Bay Area and can't attend all the days of Miss Fisher Con? Put your glad rags on and be a con Volunteer!

The swirling, crime-fighting fashion icon that is Miss Fisher is coming to San Jose in July 2019, and keeping The Honorable Miss Phryne Fisher looking stunning every day of Miss Fisher Con requires a team of enthusiastic help.

We need you!

Not to wash and sew Miss Fisher’s fabulous frocks or pour her a Negroni cocktail, but to support another wildly successful Miss Fisher Con.

Are you supportive and obliging like Dot? Quiet and ever-efficient like Mr. Butler? Quick to lend a hand in the dirty work like Cec and Bert? Officious and demanding like Aunt P?

We have a place for you on our volunteer team!

  • As a Check-in Assistant you’ll work on the front lines of the event.  Having skills in customer service and hospitality, you will ensure a swift and friendly check-in process for our guests.
  • As part of the event Friendly Face team, you will provide directions to folks as they enter the event spaces, answer general event questions (don’t worry we’ll provide you with all the answers) and be the “friendly face” of the event!
  • Some tasks require a smile and more, the Event Glue team needs to staff event sessions, manage lines, support vendors, and keep the event tidy.
  • Do you have Specialty Skills that could be put to use at a dance session or the Masquerade? Pour yourself a cup of tea (or a Negroni) and do tell! We are all ears!

Please consider this opportunity to join the Miss Fisher Con Volunteer Staff and respond to this brief questionnaire.

*Please note: You do not have to be an attendee for Miss Fisher Con in order to be a volunteer.

    Child Policy

    Miss Fisher Con is not recommended for children under 18. The event, including the discussion sessions, will be aimed at adult attendees and may contain mature subject matter.

    Should you choose to bring a child to the convention, that child must be registered and accompanied at all times by a registered adult attendee. All mature content that child is exposed to is strictly the sole responsibility and liability of their accompanying adult.

    The Adventuresses' Club of the Americas and its members are not responsible for attendees' costs involving travel, hotel accommodations, or any other non-convention ticket expenses that arise from any early departure or missed session due to the mature content.

    Cairo, 1925

    When a renowned archaeologist from Australia uncovers the tomb of an Egyptian noblewoman named Nimaethap near the Valley of the Kings, all eyes turn to Cairo for the mummy’s unveiling. But danger lurks in unexpected places - someone is murdered at the event and a spectacular jewel called the Black Scarab is stolen! The sleuths of The Adventuresses’ Club of the Americas have been called in to solve the mystery… and time is running out.

    From the creative teams of League of 13 Entertainment comes The Curse of the Black Scarab - an immersive, interactive murder mystery game that pits players against the clock (and each other) through mind-bending puzzles, clue-dropping characters, and clever conundrums that will let them prove that they are master detectives. With the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum of San Jose, CA, as its backdrop, The Curse of the Black Scarab will transport players to a time of exotic lands, ancient secrets, and nail-biting adventure!
