Annual Conference Volunteers

The ACS Annual Conference takes place with the support of hundreds of volunteers who generously contribute their talents and their time – from a few-hours shift up to a full week or more – to help make our events successful.

All volunteers receive benefits that may include an official conference t-shirt, tickets to popular events like Meet the Cheesemaker, and the opportunity to work behind the scenes with a network of industry leaders! In addition, volunteers assisting with the ACS Judging & Competition will also receive a ticket to our annual Awards Ceremony & Reception.
