of volunteers at each event.   In addition to the joy of helping our organization run successful and enjoyable events for everyone, volunteer hours earned are a key element in being able to apply and receive Year End Awards (see our LVDA Award Programs webpage ).   
You can even help another member achieve their goal of receiving a Year End Award by transferring some of your volunteer hours to them!
(see Transfer Volunteer Hours and Awarding & Recording of Volunteer Hours sections below).

If you are interested in volunteering in some capacity during our 2018 season we have two main categories of volunteer opportunities.    Physical/"Hands On" Activities and Supporting Activities see details below.   

In an effort to show our appreciation of your volunteering commitments we currently award a specific amount of "volunteer hours" for each volunteer activity, which can be used towards applying for various Year End Awards.    
Please note
: Starting this year in addition to awarding volunteer hours, we are also awarding "Volunteer Bucks" punch cards valued at $5.00 for every 4 hours of volunteering.   These cards can be used for volunteers to purchase their food at any of our events food stands.

Please review the listing below which describes all of our current volunteer opportunities and how you can volunteer for them.

    • A LVDA member may transfer hours to multiple LVDA members but is restricted to a maximum of 4 hours to each individual per calendar year.
  • A LVDA member may accept up to a maximum of 4 volunteers hours transferred to them from another LVDA member.   
    • The volunteer hours transferred to them will count as "Supporting Activities" hours.
    • Benefit: If a member only has 4 "Physical Activities" hours they can still apply for a Year End Award if someone transferred 4 hours to them, which would give them the required 8 hrs for an award (4 personal "Physical Activities" and 4 "Supporting Activities").
  • Transfer Volunteer Hours via: Volunteer Hours Transfer Form 
Awarding and Recording of Volunteer Hours
  • 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 & Supporting, NPASS Supporting, Transferred), are recorded on a LVDA Data Collection spreadsheet and an updated "Accumulated Volunteer Hours" report is posted on the LVDA "Volunteering" webpage within 1 week of each events completion.
    • Special Requirements:
      • NPASS "Supporting Activities" hours require an email to be submitted by the NPASS show manager or secretary to "",  stating the total amount of volunteer hours worked.  
        • Half of the NPASS "Total" amount of hours worked will be awarded and recorded as "LVDA Supporting Activities Hours" on the LVDA Data Collection spreadsheet.
      • Transferred Volunteer Hours require the LVDA Member who is transferring some of their volunteer hours to complete and submit the "Volunteer Hours Transfer Form".   
        • Upon receipt of the Volunteer Hours Transfer Form the availability of the requested amount of hours to be transferred will be verified and recorded under the LVDA member recipient's name on the LVDA Data Collection spreadsheet as "Supporting Activities" hours.
