Call for Convention Volunteers! 

Create connections during the BSF Convention by serving as a convention volunteer!  Welcome new members, reconnect with colleagues, and network with other convention attendees, artists, and vendors, while giving back to BSF and contributing to the success of our annual convention. Volunteers are needed to help with Demos, Workshops, and assist with Conference Registration.

Demo / Workshop Volunteers

Volunteers are needed to ensure that all demo and workshop rooms are ready prior to their scheduled start times. Volunteers will assist with making sure that the rooms have the proper materials (trees), empty trash cans, and enough wire. Workshop volunteers will be responsible for announcing the order for picking trees. 

Convention Registration Volunteers

Welcome convention attendees to Orlando, and the BSF Convention as a Convention Registration volunteer! Convention Registration volunteers assist with check-in, distribute materials and answer questions while providing excellent customer service to convention attendees.

Setup Volunteers

Setup volunteers will assist on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning with the setup of both workshop rooms, the demo room, and the vendor area. There is also a need on Monday morning for breakdown.

We are looking for enthusiastic and hard-working volunteers who want to have fun and meet new club members, vendors from around the state, or work alongside our headliner artists. This is a great opportunity to gather so much information.

One of the perks is that the volunteer gets to part of the formal BSF Convention support staff.  This enables the volunteer to be placed on the “Master List” BSF paid rooms, saving the volunteer from paying room taxes. 

  • Volunteers should be available for at least 4 hours total to support the BSF convention. 
  • There’s plenty to do:
    • Setup and Pack up
    • Registration and Greeting
    • Exhibit, Workshop, and Demonstration Monitor
    • BSF Vendor table assistance

The second big perk is to help your club reap benefits for all your time and energy.  All volunteer hours are tracked by time spent and which club you represent. The percentage of convention profits dedicated to volunteer hours is then calculated and dispersed according to your club volunteer hours.
