Volunteering for BC Hospitality Foundation

Volunteers are the heart of any successful charitable organization. With our reliable, passionate volunteers, the BCHF can make sure financial support is available to people in our industry. We could use help on any of the following initiatives:

  • Help out with our signature events either by participating on a committee and helping year round or helping on day of the event. Some people do both! This can be in various capacities from securing sponsors to hosting the registration table. Whatever you want to do, we can make it happen.
  • Volunteer opportunities exist throughout the year at the BCHF’s various events. Jobs include event registration, working the coat check, and sharing information at trade show booths. The main qualification is a great attitude and the desire to help the industry’s own charity. Join us.
  • Are you a graphic designer, website expert, photographer, social media guru? No matter your expertise, we could use your help.

To volunteer fill out the form below or contact Lucy Cayuela or phone 604-986-3256.
