(Fort McMurray, AB, May 24, 2013) – Just in time for summer activities, Events Wood Buffalo is pleased to announce the launch of its new Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP). Effective June 1, the VIP program will allow all current and future EWB volunteers to collected points which can lead to free concert tickets, programs and much more. “Our volunteers work so hard to make our events the success that they are that we’d like to show them how much we appreciate their undeniable support,” says EWB executive director, David Whitelock.
The program will allow volunteers to collect EWB Points, which can be redeemable to select Events Wood Buffalo events throughout the year. The amount of hours a VIP member volunteers is directly correlated to the amount of points they are able to receive. Therefore, three volunteer hours = three EWB Points.
The Events Wood Buffalo team will monitor and maintain the program and ensure that each volunteer complies with the rules and regulations. There is no cash value attached to the EWB Points and they cannot be traded in for monetary compensation. Only volunteer hours accumulated after June 1, 2013 will be included in the EWB Points program.
Volunteers are now being accepted for this year’s weekend long YMM Canada Day celebrations. Festivities where volunteers will be needed include the Canada Day parade, children’s activities and the two-night CanadaROCKS concert.
