The Augusta Convention & Visitors Bureau is the hospitality arm of Augusta. The ACVB's goal is to promote Augusta as a visitor destination and to welcome those visitors with great Southern Hospitality when they arrive. Volunteers are instrumental in our efforts to promote Augusta as a visitor destination. By assisting ACVB staff with conference/convention registration, greeting guests, preparing informational packets for visiting groups, providing support for bulk mailing efforts and performing administrative duties our volunteers allow us to concentrate more aggressively on marketing the Augusta area. Volunteer opportunities are available in the following areas:
Packet Preparation: Prepare visitor information materials for distribution to various groups of visitors including: meeting attendees, reunion attendees, wedding guests, and sporting events. Needed at least once weekly for at least one hour.
Visitor Services: Volunteers are needed at the Augusta Visitor Center inside the Augusta Museum of History to greet guests, distribute information, answer visitor questions, provide directions, and answer phones. Volunteers assist by filling in during staff meetings, lunch, outings and absences.
Welcome Booth and Registration: Often during conferences and special events the ACVB provides a Welcome Booth or Registration Table. Volunteers assist with registration and provide information about Augusta hotels, attractions, and restaurants to visitors. Requirements: A positive attitude, an outstanding ability to work with people and a desire to learn! Volunteers working in Visitor Services or Welcome Booth/Registration should also have (or be willing to learn) general knowledge of Augusta's attractions, hotels and restaurants as well as locations or major streets.
The Augusta Visitor Center operates a Historic Tour on board a trolley every Saturday.
History Trolley Tour Guide: Energetic, enthusiastic, story tellers are needed on an ongoing basis. Tour guides are independent contractors supplied scripted information by the ACVB to learn and present onboard the tour and trolley. Tours depart from the Augusta Visitor Center every Saturday at approximately 2:00 and run for about an hour and 15 minutes.
