Aglow International has selected the city of Spokane, Washington as the site of its 2018 U. S. National Conference, scheduled for November 1st through the 4th at the Spokane Convention Center.
Would you like to be a part of the behind the scenes conference community at our Aglow 2018 US National Conference? We would love for you to join us! We at Aglow headquarters are so grateful for your willingness to serve and help us set the stage for God to move at this year’s US National Conference. The Lord is doing BIG things in and through Aglow International and YOU are part of that! We would love to have you as a part of the team that puts together what will be one of our most exciting conferences yet, and Spokane, Washington is the setting!
If you are interested in volunteering this year and would like more information, download our Volunteer Form. We have 20 committees and each of the committees needs volunteers to help. Please pray about which committee the Lord is calling you to help with at this year’s conference.
If you live in the following states: Washington, Oregon, Alaska, and Northern Idaho we are excited to be able to invite you to apply for a position on our General Conference Support Team, an important part of every Aglow conference. The General Conference Support Team (GCST) is a group of leaders (you do not need to be in an Aglow leadership position to apply) who live within commuting distance of the conference city.
