The use of volunteers is an established tradition at WLA conventions, including the World Lottery Summit, with volunteers providing invaluable support with a broad range of tasks. The volunteer program for WLS 2018 will include participation from local and international volunteers. The local volunteers will be organized by host ALEA, while the international volunteers will come from WLA member lotteries throughout the world.

Invitation to nominate volunteers

The WLA is pleased to invite you to nominate your employee(s) for the WLS 2018 volunteer program. As volunteers, your employees will assist with the event’s logistics and, as the “front-line ambassadors” for the event, they will project the warm and friendly face of the WLA while providing first-class service to our delegates.

The volunteer program for WLS 2018 offers a quality personal and professional development opportunity for your valued employees; a chance for them to learn new skills, make new contacts and create lasting memories.

Terms and conditions

The WLA will cover the following costs for volunteers:

  • Transportation during the volunteer’s stay in Buenos Aires
  • Accommodation and meals from November 16 to November 21 inclusive
  • Training
  • Volunteer uniforms

Should your nominee/s be successful with their application, your lottery will be responsible for organizing and funding their air travel to Buenos Aires (including travel insurance). Each volunteer will be responsible for all other personal expenses incurred during their stay in Buenos Aires. Details on training, uniforms, and other preparations will be provided to successful nominees in July.
