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, make sandwiches, clean up lunch prep area and are provided with an awesome BBQ meal each day. During tear down, volunteers collect table clothes, return tables & chairs, collect trash, and take down banners and signs.
