On behalf of my friend and amazing Event manager, Joanne Chrobot, please review volunteer requirements and perks, as well as the event info.
“I would like to invite you to volunteer for an event I am helping run at the Metro Toronto Convention with Tony Robbins, PitBull, Jim Treliving from Dragon’s Den, Christina El Moussa from Flip or Flop, Todd Talbot from Love It or List It Vancouver and others.
The date of the event is Saturday, March 18, 2017.
If you would like to volunteer, please read the instructions, fill out the form below and let me know when you have done so. I will keep track of who has signed up through me as I will be handling your registration on site, and I will not see the notifications through the link.
If you know anyone else that might be interested, please send this to them.
Here are a few important details:
Volunteers must be able to work at least an 8 hour shift Saturday March 18 and attend a mandatory training session on Friday March 17 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm OR 6:00 – 8:00 pm.
Hours on the show day can range from 8-16 hours (as early as 6:00 am and as late as 1 am), depending on availability and assignment. (most positions may be done when the show ends approx. 6:45 pm – 8:00 pm) Times are an estimate only.
You will receive a $20 travel reimbursement plus a meal voucher ticket to use towards one meal while working the event.
