**Important Volunteer Information**

Please note our volunteer registration is now closed.  Thank you to all who have registered to support our athletes for Games week.  Please note the following IMPORTANT information for volunteers:

Volunteer Orientation Sessions

The National Summer Games volunteer orientation sessions are taking place July 10 and 11. All registered volunteers are required to attend one of the following sessions.

Antigonish Session: July 10th from 5-7 PM in the Gerald Schwartz School of Business, Room #110
Halifax Session: July 11th from 6-8 PM in the Burke Building – Theatre A at St. Marys University

The sessions will provide you with the information that you need to be a volunteer at the National Summer Games, and for that reason we will be keeping track of attendance to ensure that we can reach as many volunteers as possible. Please contact volunteer@so2018.com as soon as possible if you are unable to attend, as well as if your volunteering availability changes for the week of the games.

Once the Volunteer Orientation Sessions have been completed, the venue, event, and sport managers will be in touch with volunteers regarding their volunteering schedule and any event-specific information that is required. We hope that everyone can make it to the orientation sessions so that the National Games will be as amazing as they promise to be. We look forward to seeing you at the Orientations!
