2018 RMIWA Sign Me Up! Volunteer survey
The RMIWA is fortunate to have great members who volunteer for our many events. The RMIWA is always in need of workers. We have many events and ongoing projects that won’t happen without workers. EXPERIENCE IS NOT REQUIRED! Most of the jobs do not require much skill, but do require dedication and reliability. For those of you outside of the Colorado area, there are still ways you can help. For 2018, please submit your volunteer offers via this link to a Google Form survey(https://goo.gl/forms/FafNWTXcZe79Y7mB3). If you would prefer to write out your answers, you will find a form you can fill out and return scanned by email or mail on the last page of the newsletter. Please contact RMIWA President Denise Shorey at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or need more information about opportunities within the club.
We are looking for one special volunteer to pull, store and manage the club’s trailer with all the performance equipment in it. If you are comfortable pulling a trailer and would like to get more involved in lure coursing, FastCAT and LGRA—this is for you! Remember – We can’t do all of this great work without our great members!
