* Important!

Volunteering for a committee means that you intend to participate for all assigned shifts. One or more committees may be selected, but be aware that many committees require volunteers on the same date especially on Thursday, June 22 and Sunday, June 25. Please do not volunteer for multiple committees with the same times. Also be aware some of the committee positions require duties before or after the event.
If you have questions about volunteer opportunities, please email volunteer@woodturner.org.
