Volunteers are the backbone of Left Coast Crime. If you’re looking for a way to have fun, meet fellow mystery lovers, and contribute to the Left Coast Crime convention — volunteer! Please check the box on the registration form when you register if you are interested in helping with Left Coast Crime 2020. (You must be registered for the convention to volunteer.) If you forget to check the box, a general Call for Volunteers will go out in our newsletter sometime in February after the panel schedule is announced.
