This position will help in the planning, recruitment, orientation, and engagement activities for volunteers for the 2018 Boulder County Fair, which will occur August 3-12 and attract more than 150,000 people. Several hundred volunteers are needed to support this event, in areas including guest services, vendor relations, and Ag-education.
Behind-the-scenes work begins in May, and post-event work will wrap up in late August. Hours are completely flexible, depending on the Volunteer Coordinator’s schedule. Some committee meetings will take place at the Boulder County Fairgrounds, but much of the work can be done remotely via phone and email. Onsite participation during the entire run of the fair is required.
This is a perfect opportunity for anyone who wants to develop hands-on experience with nonprofit management, event planning, human resources, safety and risk management, and volunteer coordination. Attention to detail, project management, and strong people skills are required. Extensive resources, training, and guidance are available.
