Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for considering volunteer opportunities with The Forum. We are currently no longer accepting applications. Those who have applied will receive their assignment shortly.

As a volunteer, you would receive a complimentary registration for the day you volunteer. If you volunteer on Day 2 and Day 3 (March 19 & 20) you will receive Day 1 (March 18) free. If you volunteer for one day, you will receive 40% off your second non-volunteer day. 
After you register as a volunteer, you will receive a confirmation of your application however, your final confirmation with assignment will be sent to you in February. Please note that all volunteers are required to attend Volunteer Training for the morning of Thursday, March13 at the University of St. Thomas Minneapolis campus. Further details will be sent out at a later date.

Although volunteers are expected to fulfill volunteer duties, The Forum makes every effort to allow volunteers to attend selected sessions.
