Chicon 8, the 2022 Worldcon, has posted Progress Report #5, which is available for the public to download from their website. It contains detailed information from many departments. Here are a few excerpts.
Virtual C8 also needs volunteers – consult the same links shown above.
Chicon 8 is creating a fantastic virtual experience, Virtual C8, with a robust program track, static exhibits, meeting spaces, and, of course, parties! We are looking for volunteers to assist with it. If you are attending virtually and want to lend a hand, we want to talk to you. There will be virtual volunteer rewards! If you are attending virtual program items and can assist with running them, why not watch, participate, and get rewarded for it?
