Volunteer

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

Gateway's success relies heavily on the many dedicated individuals who volunteer each year. 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, they deliver name tags, run errands, host the entrances for guests or help run the give-a-way booth. During tear down, volunteers collect table clothes, return tables & chairs, collect trash, and take down banners and signs.
