The Flint & Genesee Convention & Visitors Bureau (FGCVB) is looking for volunteers to help staff two new Visitor Centers opening this year in the downtown Flint area.

The main Visitor Center will open May 1 in the south lobby of the Commerce Center at 519 S. Saginaw Street. A second, smaller, Visitor Center will open June 21 at the new Flint Farmer’s Market.

Hours of operation for the main Visitor Center will be 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Visitor brochures, maps and other information about Flint & Genesee County will be available. The Center will be manned by the Flint Sparks, volunteers who work directly with the Flint & Genesee Convention and Visitors Bureau to welcome visitors to our community.

The Visitor Center at the Farmer’s Market will share space with The Whiting and be open during regular market hours on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. In addition to tourist information, it will also offer Flint & Genesee items for purchase such as the FGCVB desktop calendars, T-shirts and keepsakes.

The FGCVB will also continue to operate the Visitor Information Center at Bishop International Airport.

To volunteer or for more information contact Courtney Irish, FGCVB Sales Manager, at 810-600 1456 or
