Symposium is a major event that would be impossible to stage without the help of hundreds of volunteers. For many attendees, the time spent working as a volunteer is one of the most rewarding parts of their Symposium experience. If you’d like to volunteer, we’d love to have you. You must be registered as a Premium or General attendee of Symposium in order to volunteer. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Sherine Iskander AIFD, CFD at sherineisk@yahoo.com.


Blooms Over Las Vegas!

Each summer during the AIFD National Symposium volunteers create amazing fresh floral creations and share them with residents of the city we are in. When you are making your plans for Symposium this year make sure to schedule in time to help with “Blooms Over”!

Volunteers are always needed. Please contact Connie Jo Harris AIFD or Chieko Fukushima AIFD if you are interested in helping.
