We Need You!
LVDA depends upon volunteers to successfully run our all our events.  

Each volunteer receives a set amount of volunteer hours for each volunteer 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 help other 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).
