Where's my invoice?

Do I need my own insurance?
If your organization has insurance, participating in the Tri-Cities VolunteerFest is likely covered. We will be asking for a Certificate of Insurance, which is a form from your insurer that confirms you have your own insurance. Our insurer would like us to collect Certificates of Insurance from all organizations that have their own event insurance. If you do not have your own insurance, Community Volunteer Connections is able to extend our insurance to cover you for the day. You'll get full instructions on how to ask for and receive a Certificate of Insurance after you register.

All-day parking is available on the Coquitlam Centre roof. Entry to the roof parking is at the north side of the mall behind T&T Supermarket.

I'll have staff/volunteers helping out at my table. Do they have to sign in?
Yes! We will have a PRIZE DRAW for anyone who is helping out at the tables, staff or volunteer. Plus, everyone needs to sign off on "Table Safety" guideless to make my insurer happy. Please send your staff/volunteers to the Community Volunteer Connections table when they arrive.
