Volunteer at Convention

Join the fun – Volunteer for Convention 2020!

Gamma Phi Beta’s 79th Convention is in the sunny oasis of Palm Springs, California! We expect approximately 900 sisters from across North America to attend, and we need your help to ensure the best experience possible!

There are many ways to get involved with the Convention effort, and we truly appreciate all the help we can get. Here are several things we still need.

  • Do you know anyone, or are you someone, that has a connection with a Palm Springs or Southern California company willing to donate a product for our welcome bag? We are looking for items like granola or breakfast bars, accessories, lip balm, sunscreen, drinks, hand sanitizers, tissues, snacks, pens, sticky notes, highlighters, etc. If you are interested or have a connection, please email Convention Arrangements Chairwoman Carly Foerster.
  • Volunteers who can give an hour or two on June 21 or 22 to assemble welcome bags.
  • Volunteers for a few hours to decorate Convention hats on June 22.
  • Can you volunteer a few hours of your time from Tuesday, June 23 through Sunday, June 28 to help during Convention? We’ll need help with:

  • Setting up and taking down decorations.
  • Supporting an events committee.
  • Assisting attendees at the hotel, registration or during events.
  • Creating centerpieces and floral arrangements.

Again, we truly appreciate and would love your help to pull off an incredible Convention. If you have any questions about volunteering at Convention, would like to be more active in the planning or would like to let us know when you can help, you can fill out this volunteer interest form or reach out to our Local Volunteer Coordinator Ashley Yee

We will stay in touch with you over the next several months to confirm your volunteer times and details regarding Gamma Phi Beta’s Convention 2020. Thank you!
