Become a Volunteer
Volunteers are essential to the success of World Stamp Show – New York 2016. There are hundreds of positions that need to be staffed. The timeframe associated with most volunteer positions is immediately before (May 25 to May 27), during (May 28 to June 4), or immediately after (June 4 to June 6), the show. There are, however, some positions that need to be staffed in the near term.
