"Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they have the heart." - Elizabeth Andrew
 

As an all volunteer club, NYCC offers a wide variety of rides, events, parties and fun activities. None of that could happen without the time and talent of our dedicated volunteers. Providing recognition for your efforts is very important. The volunteer recognition program is intended to provide a way of saying thanks for the many hours you have dedicated on behalf of the Club and our members. The core focus of our volunteer program is ride leader recognition.

We have re-designed the program:

  • lowering the threshold for all leaders to receive some recognition
  • simplifying for ride leaders and program coordinators
  • letting recipients choose from a wider range of apparel
  • laid a foundation to build a similar program for members who volunteer to help run the club.

As an all volunteer club, NYCC offers a wide variety of rides, events, parties and fun activities. None of that could happen without the time and talent of our dedicated volunteers. Providing recognition for your efforts is very important. The volunteer recognition program is intended to provide a way of saying thanks for the many hours you have dedicated on behalf of the Club and our members. The core to our volunteer program is leading rides and we have refined the program with a goal of simplifying for both ride leaders and the Volunteer Coordinator. We also wanted to lower the threshold for all leaders to receive recognition. The details for the 2022 Ride Leader Incentive program are below.

Volunteer Recognition

In order to fully capture, value and recognize YOUR time given to the club, we invite you to complete this Volunteer Form and let us know the approximate number of hours you spent in 2021 on Club activities and events that were separate from leading rides. This includes activities like organizing weekend events, serving as a SIG captain, and helping with Escape New York, Your input is critical to helping us develop a program that identifies all the work that goes into running the Club. We ask that you complete the form by May 7 ,2022. If there is something you have done that is not listed, we want to know that too.
