The annual CPHR BC & Yukon HR Conference + Tradeshow at the Vancouver Convention Centre is a popular volunteering opportunity for CPHR BC & Yukon members; however, there are limited available spaces. If selected you will have a great experience working with CPHR BC & Yukon staff ‘behind the scenes’ on the largest HR event in Western Canada, interact with conference participants, attend breakout sessions when appropriate, and watch most keynote speakers.
CPHR BC & Yukon looks for volunteers that have some experience volunteering with the association already, or leadership experience at another large conference. Transportation and accommodation are not included for volunteers. However, volunteers will be reimbursed for parking, and meals will be provided on Tuesday, May 1st and Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018. Regrettably, staff and volunteers are not eligible for the grand prize in the tradeshow.
