We are always looking for people who are willing to help.
With our new website we will launch the use of the "DIBS" feature where we will be able to post volunteer opportunities, and allow members to sign up tasks as small as an hour or two.
Please stay tuned. In the meantime, check the box on the registration form, or send us a note that you are willing to help and what you would like to help with!
Volunteering builds community! There is much work to be done, please consider joining one of these committees, which may meet on occasion, or simply offer whatever time you can share to one of the coordinators. Please contact the Coordinator or any Board member for more information.
For 2013 we have formed the following committees. We are working towards centralizing/sharing processes to improve efficiencies:
Uniform and Equipment Committee (Heather Stanga Coordinator)
Responsible for forecasting uniform and equipment needs, distribution, pickup and inventory.
Fields Committee (Nate Adams Coordinator)
