Parrot Festival 2020 Volunteer Signup

It is time once again to celebrate parrots and this year is the 21 Parrot Festival! We depend on the generosity of our many volunteers, who give their time to help us carry out this fun, wonderful, and educational event.  Please consider volunteering to help us this year in one of the many opportunities below.

For 2020, NPRPF is offering the following incentives for volunteering:

  • 10 Hours of service - Comped Registration to the Conference.
  • 15 Hours of Service - T-shirt in addition to previous
  • 20 Hours of Service - Shared room with one other person (Double Occupancy) in addition to previous.
  • 25 Hours of Service - Banquet in addition to previous.

Once you've signed up for at least 10 hours of volunteer time, we will send you the code that you need to register as volunteer.  If you reach at least 15 hours of volunteer time, we will make your hotel reservation for you.

Thank you SO MUCH in advance for your help.

 

At the end of the signup process, when it asks for a phone number, PLEASE ENTER A MOBILE NUMBER at which text messages may be received.
