A-Team Volunteers

We’re not your normal volunteer group! We’re the Alpena Area Convention & Visitors Bureau Action Team, organized to help carry out the mission of developing Alpena and the surrounding communities into the best place to live and visit.

The Alpena Area Convention & Visitors Bureau A-Team is a fun, energetic group of people who support the mission of the CVB to make Northeast Michigan a great place to live and visit. Opportunities are vast and volunteers are matched to opportunities according to skills and interests. Volunteers also have the opportunity to attend periodical A-Team Rallies to get to know other A-Team members and hear updates about Northeast Michigan happenings. No boring meetings – we get right down to the business of making our community better through action.

The only qualifications necessary are a positive attitude and an undying love for Northeast Michigan and all it has to offer residents and visitors. Joining is simple, just complete this A-Team Volunteer Participation Form below and return to the CVB office.

Local Experience Writers

Share your passion for Alpena and your experiences to inspire others, become a Local Experience Writer!

The Alpena CVB Local Experience Writers Program brings together local residents who love to write and love their community and gives them a platform to share their talents for one year. Opportunities to write like a travel writer about area information, experiences, and tips provide both local residents and potential visitors to the area a wealth of important and useful information. Local Experience Writers share their own experiences so that others may also grow to appreciate and adore the communities we call home.

Local Experience Writers give visitors and current Northeast Michigan residents a fresh perspective on all the fun and interesting things to do across our area. From digging for dinosaur fossils to enjoying a sip of wine in Alpena’s beautiful downtown, there are a wealth of experiences to enjoy. When writers don the hat of a travel journalist they give insight to what makes Northeast Michigan special and inspire others to come along for the ride.

If you would like to apply to be a Local Experience Writer please fill out and return this Local Experience Writer Rules & Guidelines and Application.
