Ready to sign up as a Convention Volunteer?

In order to volunteer for the 2018 Rotary International Convention in Toronto, you must first register. We are using VROOM! to manage all of the convention locations, shifts & volunteers. Once your account has been created, you will see all of the available shifts that you can volunteer for. Each shift has a range of required volunteers and once a shift is full, you will no longer be able to sign-up for that shift. So be sure to register early to get the shifts you want!

WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING VOLUNTEERS FOR THE 2018 CONVENTION IN TORONTO. If you've already registered for Atlanta, you will need to your profile in VROOM to volunteer for Toronto.
