Volunteers Support Symposium Success

Written by: developer

The Space Foundation sends its thanks in advance to our more than 300 volunteers who will support this year’s 31st Space Symposium. Volunteers provide valuable support in crucial areas, such as exhibitor registration, speaker support, on-site registrant check-in, greeter/directional personnel and technical support. The Symposium will be held April 13-16, 2015, at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs.

Openings are still available for Symposium volunteers and training is provided, so if you are interested in volunteering for the 31st Space Symposium you may apply now. Contact [email protected], or call +1.719.576.8000.
