It is the member's responsibility to keep a record of volunteer service hours by asking for 'Service Hours" slip at the time of volunteering and have it signed by the chairman of the event being worked. You can print a volunteer service hours record from the forms page on the drop down menu on www.californiawatercolor.org. Bring it with you to the volunteer event to be signed by the Director or Chairperson.
Here is a downloadable form you can use to record your volunteer hours.
