CAMA searching for ag student volunteers

Each year CAMA (Canadian Agri-Marketing Association) has its marketing communications competition.  Entries are submitted into over 50 categories.  All entries are judged to determine the best in Canadian agri-marketing.  The awards gala is where the winners are announced.

This year the event is taking place at the Hotel Bonaventure in Montreal on November 15.

We are looking for 5-6 ag marketing students to help at the event.  This is a great networking opportunity for those who would like to pursue a career in ag marketing!

Our criteria for students is:

  • Mature and responsible
  • Professional
  • Keen interest to help to ensure event is run smoothly
  • Live in Montreal

They would be helping with:

  • Registration
  • Encouraging people to purchase a Wall of Wine ticket to support CABEF fundraising efforts
  • Escort people off the stage when they receive their awards and usher them to the photo area
  • Assist with any clean-up from the event – remove signs, gather remaining gala booklets, etc.

Students must arrive at the hotel by 11:00am on November 15.  Lunch will be provided.  They would be involved in the rehearsal from noon – 2:30pm.  They would have ½ - 1 hour to get ready into formal wear (suits for men and dresses for ladies).  Registration opens at 3:30pm and the rest of the night progresses from then.  The event would be over at 10:30pm.  Clean-up til approx 11:15pm.
