Would you like to add your energy to the expo and make it a more spectacular event? We are always looking for volunteers to help us out with minor tasks in the weeks leading up to as well as during the expo weekend!
What we are looking for…
We are looking for happy volunteers that are excited to be a part of this wonderful event. This includes being joyful, always smiling, and always asking “how may I help?” This is one of the things that gives us our great reputation and keeps our vendors and customers coming back year after year.
What we need help with…
Tasks before the Expo: * distributing flyers locally * miscellaneous preparation and clerical tasks * light duty set-up Tasks during the Expo: * watching booths for vendors while they take breaks or do a presentation * letting speakers know their seminar is about to start * sitting in on seminars, letting speaker know time is almost up * getting lunch from café for vendors * monitoring doors and redirecting customers to use main entrance * monitoring restroom cleanliness * sweeping floors as needed * emptying trash as needed Tasks after the Expo: * light duty take down * sweeping floors * emptying trash
When do we need help?
We need your help at various times in the weeks leading up to the show and during show weekend from Friday morning through final cleanup Sunday evening. We are super busy during expo weekend and are very appreciative of our volunteer help!
On Friday: We work from about 8:30am until around 7:30pm getting the show ready. This includes setting booths up, helping vendors unload and set up, and just being an extra set of hands for random light duty tasks. There's always something that needs done and our vendors appreciate having extra hands.
On Saturday and Sunday during the expo, we have short shifts of just 6 hours throughout both days that we need coverage for. The shifts run: 9:00 am - 3:00 pm 11:00 am - 5:00 pm 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm
While these shifts are flexible, the start times are in place to allow for a short orientation to provide information about your Galactic Volunteer Duties.
On Sunday after the show: We need help taking down and cleaning up the expo space. This is all light duty work and we are usually finished by 9pm. It's mostly sweeping, moving trash to a central area, helping vendors get packed and loaded.
What you get…
The satisfaction of knowing you added your beautiful energy to the weekend and helped us to create the best Galactic Expo ever! We appreciate you, your energy and your help! Volunteer as little as six hours, or as much as you like.
In exchange, you and a friend will receive FREE Admission for the weekend to the Expo!
