Want to Volunteer at Expo?
Our Family Expo is the highlight of our year with tons of activities for the whole family from tots ‘n tykes, to dads and grandparents but, the whole weekend runs a lot smoother with plenty of volunteers to get things done. Below is a partial list of the many jobs we need help with. You can just donate an hour or two of your time or jump in with both feet and help throughout the weekend. Keep checking back because as we continue to get closer to the next Expo this page will be updated. In the meantime, here’s a look at some of the areas where we always need a helping hand or two. Contact our Volunteer Chair, Rhonda Hamilton, if you have any questions firstname.lastname@example.org.
Of course for the 2017 CHN Family Expo is using SignUp Genius again this year…. you can take a peek now and sign-up for what area and time slot you would like to help. If you can only spend a small amount of time, let us know in the comments section when you sign up. Sometimes even a 10-minute break for one of the room coordinators, so they can get some food or a drink, is helpful and welcomed.
Putting on a fabulous Expo takes great volunteers, so please if you have an opportunity to help, we would greatly appreciate it.

- Unloading of the truck and set-up Thursday morning. An hour or two.

Expo Preparations in the months preceding the event – Some of these jobs take a little more time commitment but provide such enriching value to the Family Expo, we hope you will be willing to dive in and make the best of it.
