Volunteering at Left Coast Crime

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 2024. (You must be registered for the convention to volunteer.)
