The Made In New England Expo features unique gifts, specialty food items and other products from all over New England and is hosted by EventsNH, the producers of the Made in NH Expo. This Expo offers exhibitors a great opportunity to meet thousands of buyers and holiday shoppers.
All Active GSA’s are eligible to volunteer.
Please sign up in the calendar under events.

Parking is available for guests in the garage ($6 validated rate) and on nearby streets (the side streets are free on weekends, Elm St. is only free on Sunday).
** The Expo has offered to pay for our parking while we’re volunteering, but we encourage you to park on the street since it’s free on Saturdays and carpool whenever possible, because $6 each for 50 plus volunteers can add up very quickly!

Door Greeter: Welcome guests, pass out programs, check hand stamps. You will be standing for your shift. You will be given breaks to rest as needed.
Expo Support: Walk around the Expo, assisting guests and exhibitors. This is a standing and walking position. Please, no shopping while on duty. Many vendors only have one person and really need the coverage for quick breaks.
Back Door Monitor: Sit/stand by the back door to ensure that no one sneaks in.
Come early or stay late to see the Expo
A volunteer orientation meeting is scheduled for Wednesday November 20th, 10:30 in the Penstock room at the DoubleTree, which is the old JD Tavern.

If you are wearing a sweater, it must be a cranberry, forest green, or navy cardigan style.
