What is the Big Volunteer Conference?
The 2019 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.
