From gate judges to technical delegates, officials are essential to the success of all Canadian snowboarding events.
National Volunteer Week (NVW) is a time to celebrate and thank Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers.
This year's theme is: “Celebrate the Value of Volunteering – building confidence, competence, connections and community”.
Volunteering is often seen as a selfless act; a person gives their time, skills, experience, and passion to help others, without expecting anything in return. And while volunteering is a form of service, many volunteers will tell you that “you get more than you give”. From opportunities to develop new skills, to finding deep and meaningful personal connections, the magic of volunteering is that it creates social and economic value for all.
To mark the National Volunteer Week from April 15th - 21st, Canada Snowboard wishes to recognize, celebrate and thank Canada’s volunteers. Snowboarding in Canada wouldn’t be where it is at right now without the involvement and devotion of hundreds of volunteers.
Each Provincial and Territorial Snowboard Association (PTSAs) can nominate their Provincial/ Territorial volunteer of the year. Canada Snowboard will reward the National Snowboard Volunteer of the year among the nominates.
Each Province/ Territory will be responsible for their internal selection process (for the Provincial/ Territorial Snowboard Volunteer of the year) - deadline (April 21st).
The winner of the 2018 Canada Snowboard Volunteer of the Year Award will be announced on April 30th.
