Volunteer Opportunity

 Some have expressed an interest in helping with the convention. There’s plenty to do so we could use your experience, expertise or just your time. Whether you have a skill you would like to share with us, or you’re just a novice and want to help on a committee, please send an email to FAVEconvention@gmail.com . Some of the work takes place throughout the year as we plan, and a lot of it takes place at the convention. We’ll find a place for you so send us an email or give us a call!

 

Join the team and help make it an amazing year for the Family Entertainers Convention!
