We've always been: For, About & By Travelers

TravCon volunteers give their time generously to make this conference a success. We need volunteers for a variety of positions such as registration, door monitors, info desk and greeters.  This can be a fun way of getting to know other volunteers and attendees while helping out the conference.  Many of our volunteers come back each year and have become part of the TravCon family.

Volunteer Guidelines

8 Hours for a free Pass

8 hours will be expected in return for full TravCon registration. No partial credit will be given. If you would like to volunteer for a few hours just for the fun of it please let us know. All help is appreciated!

Duties not assigned in advance

Duties will be assigned instead of signing up for particular jobs as in past years.

Active Duty

You will be expected to be on your feet if your position requires it. If you have difficulty standing for 2-4 hours please let us know. There are very few positions that allow sitting.

Orientation Saturday 3pm

You are required to be at the orientation at 3pm on Saturday afternoon. This is important for everyone to attend as we have some changes and new additions this year. Following the orientation there will be a fun reception for the volunteers to meet the board members/committee members from 4-6pm. We encourage everyone to attend so you know who the go-to people are, get to know your TravCon team, and make some new friends!

Check Your Time Slots

Some of the volunteer time slots are during the session times so please look at these closely and we will try to not schedule you during these times if there is a session you want to attend. The tentative schedule will be released in May.

Waiting List

There will be a waiting list for volunteers, so please know that we are considering each and every one who shows interest. Things will happen and positions may come up at the last minute. If you have already bought your ticket and end up volunteering instead, we'll refund your ticket (don’t hesitate to buy at the early bird price just in case you don’t end up with a position).

You need to find your replacement

If an emergency comes up prior to or during the conference - notify the Volunteer Coordinator (Tricia) immediately. We will do our best to accommodate, but please know that if you do not fulfill all your hours, you will be required to pay for your full conference fee.

If you are still interested in volunteering at TravCon please continue on to send an email request. Include your name, email address and phone number so that we may get in contact with you for further discussion.
