Volunteer at CNU 21

On-site Volunteering

Thank you for your interest in being an on-site volunteer at CNU 21: Living Community in Salt Lake City, Utah, May 29-June 1, 2013. Volunteer opportunities are offered for people wishing to experience the Congress at a deeper, more involved level, or people facing financial difficulties. Volunteers are offered a 4-day registration for the highly discounted fee of $75. A minimum of 10 hours of volunteer time is required. Volunteers are entitled to participate in any of the non-ticketed sessions, workshops or plenary sessions (including the opening session), provided that there is no conflict with the volunteer schedule.

Each volunteer is responsible for their own travel arrangements, lodging, and other expenses. The Congress for the New Urbanism takes place over the course of 4 days and consists of a wide range of events occurring at the Grand America Hotel and other locations in and around Salt Lake City. The average volunteer shift will be between 1.5 and 4 hours long.
