Convention Planning provides three categories of volunteers with differing expectations and time commitments. Some roles start many months prior to convention while others start when you arrive at the convention.
If you’re interested in volunteering, fill out this form and mail, fax or email it back to us.
Coordinators are full-time volunteers appointed by Convention Planning staff to give leadership to a specific area of convention. Their work involves program planning and recruiting additional volunteer staff prior to convention as well as supervising their volunteers as they carry out the activities during the convention week. Coordinator’s expenses are covered (including travel and lodging*) during the week of convention.
To inquire about these positions, please complete the Volunteer Interest Form. Associates are full-time volunteers who are recruited by the Coordinators to assist in carrying out the goals of a specific program during the convention week. Associate Staff are expected to pay their own travel and a discounted registration fee of $150. Other expenses such as lodging* and meals are covered.
Daily volunteers are registrants who indicate their availability on the registration form and wish to donate a portion of their time during the convention week. Worship ushers, seminar ushers and meal ticket takers are examples of roles volunteers might fill. They may be asked to work up to eight hours per day during the week of convention. Volunteers who donate 20-35 hours receive a refund of half of their registration fee after convention; volunteers who donate 35 hours or more receive a full refund of their registration fee after convention. Volunteers will be contacted and assigned by the Volunteer Coordinator. Lodging is not covered.
*Full-time volunteers rooming with another full-time volunteer will have lodging costs covered by Convention Planning. However, if you room by yourself or with someone who is not a volunteer, ½ of your lodging cost will be covered and payment of your share of lodging is expected when registering online. Convention Planning office will make your lodging reservations.
