We'd love to work with you!!

We invite you to contribute a few hours of your time to help keep Shelburne Falls and West County the desirable place to live, raise a family, and retire that it is -- and to make it even better!  

The Greater Shelburne Falls Area Business Association and the Shelburne Falls Visitor Information Center, located in the same building at 75 Bridge Street in Shelburne Falls, have been providing economic development programs and activities for decades with limited budgets, few paid staff, and a small group of dedicated volunteers.  We're ready to grow to the next level of effectiveness in service to our community. To continue to do this work, we seek a few volunteers  to contribute a small amount of time to help out.

 We'll strive to make the work fun and enjoyable and we will honor you and appreciate you for your service! 

Here are some of the ways you can help out - starting right now!


We’re working on updating our websites and email marketing software contacts and could use your help if you’re detail oriented and a little computer savvy (or we’ll train you).  Come for a few hours or sign-up for a recurring commitment.  Please contact Carmela if you’re interested and available.  Hours/days negotiable.
