    Heads-up! On Saturday, March 23 at 12pm EST we'll beging accepting volunteer requests for American Craft Beer Fest (ACBF) which is being held on May 31 & June 1 at the Seaport World Trade Center Boston.

    Volunteering for a BA Fest is a great way to help us promote beer, meet new friends, talk to brewers and have some fun.

    Sign Up Info:
    • All volunteers must be 21+ w/ valid ID and be in good standing w/ BA.
    • Submitting your request does not guarantee that you'll be selected to volunteer.
    • If selected, you'll be contacted with additional forms and info.
    • Requests/follow-ups via email will be ignored.
    • If you have a friend or significant other who'd like to volunteer, they'll need to put in their own request.
    Form:
    https://docs.google.com/a/beeradvoc...mkey=dGZGby12NkRNVUhERjkyckE2YjFpdWc6MA#gid=0

    Thanks in advance for your interest and support!

    Howdy BA,

    I have just filled out the Volunteer Request form and was wondering how, if we need to edit our forms to add availability how would I do so?

    Also, I did not notice the date to withdraw from volunteering? I ask for other BA peeps who are interested, but may have scheduling issues.

    Thanks so much for the opportunity to volunteer :)

    As per the update, I plan on processing requests next week (after Beer for Beasts).

    Submitting a request does not guarantee that you'll be volunteering, but those who are selected will receive futher information; including items you mentioned.

    Thanks.

    Update:
    I just processed the first 250 volunteer requests. Everyone in this round was just sent an email with further instructions.

    Once we get some forms in we'll take a look at our needs and process more as needed.

    Thanks again for your support.

    The form deadline for those who've already been processed (~300 BAs) is this Friday, May 3; an email alert was just sent. Those who don't complete their forms in time will be released from the volunteer crew to give others a chance to volunteer.
