“Volunteers for the General Convention come together to welcome, assist, and serve the Convention by providing support through hands-on, behind-the-scenes work as an extension of the Office of the General Convention,”  commented Lori Ionnitiu, General Convention Manager.  “We encourage and welcome all who are interested and willing to share their time and talents with us.”

There are a variety of volunteer opportunities available for many skills and talents. Daily schedules range from half-day to multiple shifts over many days.
