Apply to Be a Volunteer or Member
We welcome volunteers who are committed to carrying out our mission – making our streets and communities a safer place to live.
Please fill out and submit the Volunteer/Member application below if you are interested in joining MADD Central Okanagan.
Important Membership and Volunteer information:
- Membership with a Chapter/Community Leader group does not automatically mean that the member must volunteer. Membership entitles the member to voting privileges in a designated Chapter/Community Leader group. The member can choose to volunteer, but it is not expected.
- A volunteer within a Chapter/Community Leader group volunteers their time to promote the mission of MADD Canada. A volunteer does not necessarily have to be a member as they may not be interested in having voting privileges. However, a volunteer and a member can be one and the same.
- Only members of a Chapter are eligible to serve on the Chapter Board of Directors. The Chapter Board of Directors is elected by the general membership at the Chapter’s Annual General Meeting. Directors on the Chapter Board have a higher responsibility to attend meetings and be involved in Chapter activities.
