We’re working on FAQs as this year’s event comes together. Please see
below for some basic FAQs, but rest assured more information will be
added as we have it. If you have questions that cannot be answered by
using the Frequently Asked Questions, please contact Customer Care at
email@example.com or 916.452.9181. [Final FAQs will be a
PDF flyer format that will need to be linked to the website here when
ready and designed.]
What is the Big Volunteer Conference?
Big Volunteer Conference is planned just for YOU – our dedicated
volunteers! Spend a day learning, leading, and coming together as
volunteers for Girl Scout at our first annual Big Volunteer
Conference. The conference will feature inspiring speakers, breakout
sessions with opportunities to expand your personal development and
your Girl Scout expertise, and a community partner expo. More
information about speakers and exhibitors will be available in Spring 2019.
When and where is the Big Volunteer Conference?
The 2019 Big Volunteer Conference will be on Saturday, August 3,
2019. Plan to spend the full day with us, and a specific day-of
schedule will be shared once registration opens in May.
The second annual Big Volunteer Conference will be held at The
Falls Event Center in Elk Grove, California.
Who is invited to attend?
The Big Volunteer Conference is
only open to registered Girl Scout adults who provide direct support
to girls and/or adult volunteers (i.e. leaders, other troop
volunteers, Service Unit Team members, Trainers, episodic volunteers,
etc.). As much as we love to see our girls at events, we will not be
offering the ability to care for them, and the session material is
geared toward volunteer learning. The 2019 Volunteer Conference is for
Girl Scout volunteers only. 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.
When can I register?
Registration opens in May 2019. Event registration for the
event is required. We expect the Big Volunteer Conference to sell out,
so we encourage you to buy tickets early. Registration and payment
will only be available online, and individuals must register for
themselves individually - you cannot register on behalf of other
volunteers. Financial assistance will be available for those who
qualify. See General Schedule & Pricing above for additional details.
