I think the e-mail address I listed earlier might be wrong
As far as I know anyone can be a volunteer. I was told there were
compensations for volunteering. You need to email Quincy Owens to get the
particulars. I know they need a lot of volunteers.

I did this at the Charlotte NCECA and planning to do at this year's NCECA.
What you "get" is admission to the conference. According to the list Quincy
sent me, there are 67 volunteer slots open. Each slot has a variety of
things for the volunteer to do, totalling about 8-10 hours of your time
working for the conference doing things like running audiotape machines,
slide projectors, turning lights on and off, checking to see that people
coming into a room have a conference badge, stuffing packet info, selling
Tshirts. At Charlotte, I ran the slide projector for the opening ceremony
stuff, plus two other conference topics and had to hang out in the volunteer
coordination area about 2 hours one day, and that was it. YOu have to show
up 30 minutes before the assigned event starts in order to get your ducks in
a row. It ain't hard. THe downside is if you get stuck in a conference
topic you would otherwise have avoided due to lack of interest or
understanding, but that's why they have each slot broken down by job and you
pick the one you want. :)
If you email Quincy, don't be surprised if it takes him a week to get back
to you; I don't know him, but I have emailed him 3x and so far have heard
back from him only once, and that was like 4 days after my email to him.
