The Louisville Convention & Visitors Bureau(LCVB) is looking for volunteers to help with the 2015 National FFA Convention. Louisville’s largest convention will return to the city this fall with more than 60,000 students and advisors.
“Last year, not only did we see students attending from all over the country, but people made the trip just to volunteer their time,” said Rose Caple, volunteer coordinator for the LCVB. “Last year more than one-thousand volunteer hours were donated to the FFA convention and we are looking to grow that number for 2015.”
Volunteer positions include working at the FFA MegaStore inside the expo, city information assistance and accompanying groups on off-site educational tours. Volunteers will receive training and a Louisville shirt to wear during the shift.
The National FFA convention will run from October 28-October 31 at the Kentucky Exposition Center. Attendees will learn about careers in the agriculture industry, compete for scholarships, volunteer in the “Days of Service” program and shape the future of the National FFA Organization.
