2016 CAJGC Volunteer Registration
As you may be aware, being host to the CAJGC implies an enormous amount of planning, coordinating and execution; before, during and after the event. We cannot complete this exercise successfully without the assistance of a number of volunteers in key areas of operations. We take this opportunity to invite persons who would like to be part of this activity and play a pivotal role in the success of the Championships.
We have a number of key positions to be filled. All of the volunteer functions are listed below for your information. We again look forward to your support and to the valuable time that you will spend with the event; it is appreciated by the BGA Management Committee.
You may select as many volunteer functions as you wish along with the dates and start time. Minimum times are 4 hours.
