Volunteering at the Annual Show

The Houston Gem and Mineral Society is an all volunteer-run earth science education organization. We take pride in the fact that we hold a large number of events throughout the year, and each of those events is staffed by our generous members volunteering their time and talent.

Our largest event by far happens to be the largest Gem and Mineral show in the state of Texas. It is a 3-day show held on the second weekend of November each year. This show has 70 different slots that need to be staffed over three days, totaling over 200 different shifts. Please be generous with your time and help us continue to hold the best show in Texas!
