How can I volunteer at the Rally?

If you are already at the Rally, come to the Rally registration desk and ask where you can help out. Or you can ask any of the committee members, who are wearing badges with ribbons on them so they can be identified. There is always room for more volunteer support.

If you want to take advantage of our scholarship program, you will need to go to the registration desk and ask for a scholarship. If there are any left, you will be asked to volunteer throughout the weekend in one capacity or another. But don't worry, it's never more than any of us can handle. It's a joy to give back in the fellowship!
