The GAMMA.CON society is an incorporated, non-profit organisation whose aim is to keep GAMMA.CON as a fun, open and accessible event.
GAMMA.CON is organised by an elected team, who manage, and work with an organising committee. The elected members are voted in by The GAMMA.CON Society Incorporated Membership at the end of each year. The membership of the organisation consists of a group of past and present volunteers who have shown their dedication to making GAMMA.CON a success.
The Executive Committee
The Executive Committee is a four member team elected at the Annual General Meeting by the membership of the organisation. The Elect appoints the Committee and guides the overall direction of the organisation and Festival.
The GAMMA.CON Committee is responsible for the running of the Festival. The structure of the Committee is determined by the Elect each year. Each role on the Committee is responsible for a particular facet of the Festival.
Application for GAMMA.CON membership is open to any member of the general public who has demonstrated their dedication to the success of GAMMA.CON. If you’re interested in becoming a member, we recommend getting involved with the festival through volunteering this year.

The GAMMA Volunteers
Each year GAMMA.CON enlists the help of over 100 volunteers to assist the Elect and Committee with delivery of the festival. Our volunteers range in age from 16 to 60, and help all over the festival, to ensure our attendees have an amazing weekend. Positions include: set-up, ticketing, events, games, crowd management and many more fun and exciting roles.
Easily identifiable by their striking Orange shirts, the volunteers are here to assist you during your visit. GAMMA.CON would not be a success without these dedicated volunteers.
