Volunteering

Overview

Volunteerism is a key component to the business model of the GTHLA. The majority of labour needed to run the league is provided by volunteers. The benefits include maintaining low membership fees, earning credit toward all league fees and dues and providing additional avenues for membership collaboration which strengthens community.

Utilization of Volunteer Tracking

Volunteer time can be used to earn discounts on team and individual membership fees. Details of available discounts toward 2016/17 membership fees can be viewed, here. Honorariums are paid out to the volunteers who donate the most time and expertise. For these financial systems to operate fairly, we need all volunteer time and expertise donated to the league reported.

Collecting this information also helps us build accurate budgets for the work that goes into specific components of the organization and it also helps us build transparency with who’s doing what and how much work they’re putting into the benefit of the league and community.

Reporting Volunteer Time

We are working on incorporating the value of volunteer time and expertise into the financial sustainability of the league. In order for us to build this system, we ask that all volunteers do their best to report the time and expertise that they have donated to the league.
