Granite State Ambassadors are contracting partners for the New Hampshire Division of Travel & Tourism Development to assist with the planning, volunteer management, and onsite management of the New Hampshire Tourism Information booth within the New Hampshire building on the Eastern States Exposition grounds in West Springfield, MA for the Big E (September 15-October 1, 2017).
We’re looking for friendly, happy people to volunteer at NH Tourism Booth in the NH Building at The Big E in Springfield, MA. GSA volunteers, friends, and tourism industry folks are invited to volunteer during the 17 day fair. GSA volunteers will receive special event service hours. All volunteers will receive a free ticket to the fair for the day(s) of their volunteer shift(s). Travel and accommodations are on-your-own, but we’ve researched a few options that are listed below. We look forward to seeing you at the fair!
Volunteer orientation notes have been posted! Click here to read them before your shift.

There will be an orientation meeting at the Division of Travel and Tourism offices in Concord on Thursday, September 7, 10am-noon. While attendance is not required to volunteer, it is strongly recommended that you attend the orientation, especially if you’ve never volunteered before or haven’t been to the orientation in a year or two. Orientation is where you will receive your parking directions and tickets. Please sign up for orientation while you’re signing up for your shifts!
We will have a debriefing meeting (and pizza party!) after the fair Thursday, October 12, 11am-noon to hear your feedback.
