Do you enjoy dogs? Do you enjoy fun festivals? Help us put dogs and festivals together and volunteer to coordinate an awesome event!
Canine Companions for Independence is looking for fun-loving volunteers to help organize a fun dog festival next year.
- Work closely with the publicity chair, sponsorship chair and registration chair in soliciting and encouraging the creation of teams and the registration of individual fundraisers.
- Reach out to different sectors, including Canine Companions volunteers, sponsors and the local community, and encourage them to not only participate in DogFest, but to ask their friends, family and colleagues to register and join them on a team. Headquarters will send encouraging emails to Team Captains at various pre-determined times leading up to the event. Additional emails will be sent to all registrants, whether on a team or not.
