We Need You!

The LVDA depends upon volunteers to successfully run our events.  

Please consider volunteering so we can continue to offer shows, clinics and other educational events.

Each volunteer will receive volunteer hours for each activity, which can be used to apply for LVDA Year-End Awards.  See our LVDA Year-End Award Programs page for award requirements.

Volunteers can even help another member achieve their goal of receiving a Year End Award by transferring volunteer hours!  (see Transfer Volunteer Hours and Awarding & Recording of Volunteer Hours sections below).

If you are interested in volunteering in some capacity during our 2019 season simply go to the Show Omnibus page or the Clinics & Fix-a-Tests page to access the Volunteer Sign Up Form for each event.

There are two main categories of volunteer opportunities:  

  • Physical/Hands-On Activities and Supporting Activities. 

Please review the listing below which lists all of our current volunteer opportunities.

Transfer of Volunteer Hours

  • An LVDA member may transfer hours to multiple LVDA members with the following restrictions:
    • Limited to a maximum of 4 volunteer hours transferred to each individual per calendar year.
      • Exception:  A family member may transfer a maximum of 8 volunteer hours to another family member.
  • An LVDA member may accept up to a maximum of 8 transferred Supporting Activities volunteer hours. 

     Benefit: 

  • If a member only has 4 Physical/Hands-on Activities hours they can still apply for a Year End Award using transferred Supporting Activities hours, which would give them the required 8 hrs for an award (4 personal Physical/Hands-on Activities and 4 transferred Supporting Activities).​

  • If a member has 8 Physical/Hands-on Activities hours and wants to apply for 2 awards, they can use 4 Supporting Activities hours transferred to them by two separate members or 8 Supporting Activities hours transferred to them from a family member to equal the required 8 hrs for each award (4 personal Physical/Hands-on Activities and 4 transferred Supporting Activities for each award).

Awarding of Volunteer Hours

  • Physical/Hands-On volunteer hours are awarded to LVDA Members after each LVDA event through a report submitted by the Show/Event Manager

  • Supporting Activities volunteer hours are awarded to LVDA Members after they are reported by the LVDA Supporting Activities manager/coordinator

Recording of Volunteer Hours

  • All Volunteer hours (LVDA Physical/Hands-On & Supporting, LVDA Transferred, NPASS Supporting), are recorded on a LVDA Data Collection spreadsheet. An updated Accumulated Volunteer Hours report is posted on the LVDA Volunteering web page shortly after each event.
    • Upon receipt of the Volunteer Hours Transfer Form the availability of the requested hours to be transferred will be verified and recorded under the recipient's name as Transferred Supporting Activities hours.
  • Special Requirements:

    • NPASS Supporting Activities hours require an email to be submitted by the NPASS show manager or secretary to lvdashows@gmail.com, stating the total amount of volunteer hours worked.  

      • Half of the NPASS Total hours worked will be awarded and recorded as LVDA Supporting Activities Hours on the LVDA Data Collection spreadsheet.
