Work Credits – EMSC Wants YOU!
To many of you, the “Work Credits” requirement at EMSC is somewhat of a mystery. Hopefully it won’t be after you read this page. Without the help of parents, we simply could not operate our program at the same high level that exists today. We need race-day volunteers on the hill, parents helping in the lodge, parents helping with bibs and registration, and most importantly – we need parents to help “shadow” our Junior Race groups during training and race days.
Simply put – Work Credits are a system of tracking volunteer days that offset a financial commitment. The Work Credits program requires parents to provide a check at the beginning of the season that can be “worked off” by volunteering. If you volunteer to gain enough Work Credit Points then the check is shredded at the end of the season.
The club’s survival is dependent upon volunteers. In order to help assure that the club receives the required volunteer support, a work deposit check is collected annually from each family at the time of registration. LERT requires all members to support the club through a minimum number of volunteer hours or pay a fee for the hours not worked. Many families exceed the number of hours required, which is greatly appreciated! Volunteers must sign up prior to the event in order to get credit for the hours worked. It is first come, first serve for the events you want to volunteer for. To encourage participation by all members, a work credit deposit check, dated May 1, 2017 is required at the beginning of the season. Each credit you earn is applied against your deposit. Your deposit check is shredded (un-cashed) only if you complete ALL YOUR WORK CREDITS and meet the Fundraising requirement by April 30, 2017. Otherwise the check is cashed after May 1, 2017 and a refund for the work credits you earned is sent back to you. All volunteers should keep their own log of work credits earned. Volunteers will receive a receipt for each day of work. If you have a specific question about work credits earned please email Tricia Klomhaus – firstname.lastname@example.org.
