Volunteers Needed - Security Gathering.
NOTE: The early arrival date is the 15th, one day earlier than noted in the original invitation.
It isn’t possible to conduct an FMCA International Convention and RV Expo without a lot of volunteers. The Rocky Mountain Area is hosting the Convention and providing Early Security. The Beaver Ambassador Club and the Diesel RV Club are seeking volunteers to staff all of the security positions needed during the FMCA International Convention.
Ken & Lida Carpenter (F312233), Team Captains, and Garland & Dorothy Land, (F172623), Co-Captains, are helping to organize the FMCA Convention Volunteer Security Team. Our efforts will be coordinated with Terry Whaley (F366330), Rocky Mountain Area, and his Early Security Team and Rita Moore (F385754), Rocky Mountain Area Volunteer Captain. The Rocky Mountain Area will also recruit volunteers for our Convention Teams.
Here are the details:
– Security volunteer positions include working at outside gates to the area where the new coaches will be displayed as well as the exhibit buildings and other areas as needed.
– All people are provided with individual assignment sheets and instructions. Note that, in general, all positions are sitting positions so volunteers should plan on taking their own chair and, if an outside position is assigned, plan for any unusual weather situations.
– Each volunteer needs to submit: Name(s), F#, email address, contact phone number (cell), and the time of day that will work best (e.g., morning, mid-day, or afternoon) for a phone interview.
– Volunteers must plan to arrive three days before the beginning of the convention on July 15. There is no camping fee for the early arrival nights or other perks in addition to the training at a few seminars covering security issues and procedures. Some social gatherings will also be included.

The Security Gathering is expected to be held 2 days prior to the start of the FMCA International Convention in Gillette, WY, at the Cam-Plex facility which begins on July 18-21 2018. Club members wanting to join us for the convention and a few shifts of security may come in two days early beginning July 16th.
If you are interested please register for the FMCA convention and check off Volunteer and Security on your registration form. Early bird registration is until May 23, 2018 which includes some savings in cost. 50 amp, 30 amp and generator sites are available. Check the FMCA registration form for details and pricing.
Security volunteers normally are parked in the same area. This requires arriving the holding area at a designated time. These details will be provided once a volunteer commitment is received. The extra nights on the 15th - 17th are part of the FMCA cost if you are a security volunteer. We will get to park together if we come in together. More information to follow in the coming months.
