No matter your skill set, we have a job for you!

Gateway's success relies heavily on our many dedicated volunteers. During set-up on Monday, volunteers deliver tables and chairs to booths, set out table cloths, hang banners and assist exhibitors. On Wednesday and Thursday, volunteers deliver name tags, run errands, make sandwiches, clean up lunch prep area - and get an awesome meal out of the deal. During tear down, volunteers collect table clothes, return tables & chairs, collect trash, and take down banners and signs.
