Volunteer Program

The World Lottery Summit 2022 Volunteer Program

The World Lottery Association (WLA) and the North American State and Provincial Lotteries (NASPL) will jointly host the 2022 World Lottery Summit that will be held in Vancouver, Canada from October 16 to October 20, 2022.  

The use of volunteers is an established tradition at major WLA and NASPL events, with volunteers providing invaluable support with a broad range of tasks.  The Volunteer Program for WLS 2022 will include participation from local and international volunteers. The local volunteers will be from BCLC, the host lottery, while the international volunteers will come from WLA and NASPL member lotteries throughout the world. 

Invitation to nominate volunteers 
WLA and NASPL are pleased to invite you to nominate your employee(s) for the WLS 2022 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 WLA and NASPL while providing first-class service to our delegates.  

The Volunteer Program for WLS 2022 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. 

Selection process and criteria 
WLA & NASPL is looking to recruit up to 20 international volunteers for the WLS 2022 volunteer program. Each WLA member lottery can nominate up to two employees as volunteers. Volunteers must be able to speak fluent English; any other language is a bonus. Preference will be given to nominees who have not participated in previous WLA conventions and trade shows as a volunteer. 
The WLA will make a selection on the basis of experience, skills, language abilities, and other relevant criteria as detailed in the volunteer nomination form

  • Transportation during the volunteer’s stay in Vancouver

Should your nominee/s be successful with their application, your lottery will be responsible for organizing and funding their air travel to Vancouver (including travel insurance).
