The Augusta Convention & Visitors Bureau (ACVB) 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. The ACVB offers both paid and volunteer opportunities to potential candidates that share in their organizational and destination vision and mission.
We aspire to a destination vision dependent on collective partnership and mutual benefits.

We aspire to be an organization dependent on astute leadership and professional management.
To be the prime advocate and leaders of visitor destination development and marketing in Augusta's River Region.
The official destination marketing and management organization enhancing the region's economy by positioning Augusta as a preferred visitor destination.
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.
