Volunteer with us this October!

October is an extremely busy month for Georgia Beef Board and Georgia Cattlemen's Association! This October, volunteer help is absolutely essential as two events fall during the same time frame. Staff will split up to cover both, but we need your help to make these events successful!

Oct. 4 - 14
Georgia National Fair in Perry, Ga.
Volunteer help needed in two to four hour shifts. Two volunteers are requested for each weekday morning interact with school children.
GBB is once again setting up The Beef Story display, which takes visitors from farm to fork. The exhibit includes stations on production, the environment, nutrition, food safety, grading and byproducts. This year, GBB partnered with American National CattleWomen to bring new and exciting programs to the exhibit: Representatives from the National Beef Ambassadors and National Beef Speakers Bureau will join the team to assist with hands-on activities.


Oct. 6 and 7
Taste of Atlanta in Atlanta, Ga.
Accommodations will be provided for volunteers who've traveled in from more than 100 miles and who volunteer at least one day.
This is one of GBB's largest consumer events, reaching more than 40,000 people. This year we'll be serving beef brisket samples and handing out recipe and nutritional brochures. The hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. We would like to request volunteers to help grill, assemble and distribute brisket samples.

Oct. 16 - 18
Sunbelt Ag Expo in Moultrie, Ga.
GBB and GCA will set up an exhibit table in the Beef Pavillion area from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. We are looking for volunteers to distribute materials at our booth and talk with farmers, ranchers and youth about our organizations and the beef industry. There is also an opportunity to reach consumers and support the Georgia CattleWomen at their beef promotion booth in the Family Living building.

Volunteer leaders are truly the lifeblood of our organizations, and we could not make events successful and memorable without your help. If you are able to volunteer with us at any of these events, please contact Brooke Williams at or 877-444-BEEF. Thank you so much for your hard work in the industry!
