Greetings New Living Expo Volunteers!
We are so excited to be hosting the Expo for the 16th year. A large part of the success of our show is due to our wonderful volunteers, many of whom return every year. Please check in at the main entrance in the lobby. Look for a sign saying Volunteer Check-In
Why volunteer at New Living Expo?
Volunteers receive the following:
- Free three day pass
- Free Special Event ticket for working 2 or more shifts
- Free New Living Expo t-shirt or bag to keep after your shift
- The opportunity to meet new people
- Fun, fun, fun
There are 5 volunteer categories: Set Up, Breakdown, Ticket Taker, Greeter, and Coat Check. All shifts are 4-5 hours long and generally require that you be able to stand on your feet, perform some physical labor, and have a friendly demeanor. It’s important to wear comfortable shoes and attire. Parking is available for $10 per day and if you use public transportation be sure to check the hours of operation before signing up for a volunteer shift. Here is a description of the Volunteer categories.
Set Up: Volunteers help with setting up the bookstore, decorating the hall, arranging tables and chairs, transporting items to booths, and other tasks. Volunteers should be able to lift 40 lbs., be on your feet for 4 hours or more, and be able to climb a ladder if needed.
Breakdown: Volunteers help with breaking down and packing up items after the close of the show on Sunday evening. This is a very physical job which requires strength and mobility to dismantle booth fixtures, tables, and stack chairs.
Ticket Taker: Volunteers take tickets at the front doors and/or at special events. They may also be asked to use a ticket scanner or apply a wrist band.
Greeter: Volunteers provide a friendly greeting to attendees, help with line control, and assist ticket takers.
Coat Check: Volunteers help with checking coats and items from attendees, volunteers, and speakers. Must be able to manage money and provide event information to attendees.
