The 2019 Big Volunteer Conference will be on Saturday, August 3, 2019 at The Falls Event Center in Elk Grove, California. Plan to spend the full day with us - a detailed schedule will be shared once registration opens in May.

Who is invited to attend?
The 2019 Big Volunteer Conference is only open to Girl Scout adult volunteers who provide direct support to girls and/or other adult volunteers (i.e. leaders, other troop volunteers, Service Unit Team members, Trainers, episodic volunteers, etc.). All volunteers must be registered members. If you have volunteered in another capacity with Girl Scouts but are not a registered member, you can become a member here.

As much as we love to see our girls at events, the session material is geared toward volunteer learning and we will not be offering programming or care for children of any age.

When can I register?
Advanced registration for this event is required and will open in May 2019. We expect the Big Volunteer Conference to sell out, so we encourage you to buy your tickets early. Registration and payment will only be available online, and individuals must register themselves individually - you cannot register on behalf of other volunteers. Financial assistance will be available for those who qualify.
