Volunteers, We Need You!
Volunteer hours updated July 3, 2017.
It is the intent of the program to encourage members to become active by volunteering at various activities and events sponsored or sanctioned by DVCTA throughout the year. The Association would not be able to provide quality shows, clinics, and educational events without the assistance of these volunteers and acknowledges that reward and recognition of these services are critical to the retention of volunteers in the organization.
We wish to recognize all of the following DVCTA volunteers who went above and beyond their minimum commitment to really help DVCTA rock in 2016! (And we know a lot of them did even more than is listed here!)
Bronze – 20 Hours
Meredith Graves Rotko
Silver – 35 Hours
Gold – 50+ Hours
Platinum – 100 + Hours!
Lisa Knox – 170
Darcy Miller – 165
Megan Mendenhall – 108
Show/event/clinic organizers will be responsible for securing the appropriate volunteers to fill the positions necessary to carry out their activity. The organizer will record the volunteers name, email, and number of hours to submit to the volunteer coordinator, Liz Brenner (firstname.lastname@example.org) after the event. Periodically, a report of volunteer hours will be posted on the DVCTA website so members can track their hours in preparation for year-end volunteer recognition awards.
End of Year Awards
Volunteers will also be eligible to receive end of year awards based on the number of hours each volunteer contributes to the organization within the calendar year by volunteering at DVCTA schooling shows, clinics and other activities. Awards will be issued as follows:
Silver Medal Award
Gold Medal Award
Volunteer of the Year Award
35 hours of volunteer service
50+ hours of volunteer service
Volunteer with the highest total hours of volunteer service
Service Volunteer – The Distinguished Service Award
Without the “Service Volunteer” the events and activities within the organization would not be possible. Service Volunteers are those members of DVCTA that go above and beyond the call of duty for a specific project or event. These volunteers spend countless hours in support of the organization, committed to providing quality programs and activities to the DVCTA membership and upholding the mission statement of the organization. Service Volunteers often serve on multiple committees, are involved in ongoing projects, and volunteer on a regular basis at various DVCTA activities. Service Volunteers are eligible for “The Distinguished Service Award”. The Distinguished Service Award was first presented in 1984 “in appreciation of your dedication to the spirit and ideals of DVCTA and your generous service to the sports of Dressage and Combined Training”. Each year the board votes to choose the volunteer that the Distinguished Service Award goes to.
