Volunteer Hours Submission Form

 

FFAA records the number of hours that volunteers contribute to our association as part of our local grant applications. We ask that you record all hours spent on behalf of FFAA for this purpose using the FFAA volunteer hours submission form. Do not include hours attending your guild or group meetings unless you spend time promoting FFAA at such an event. Examples of eligible hours include:

  • Local events, i.e., Creativ Festival held in September each year

  • Demonstrations to the public at local festivals or events, i.e., farmers’ markets, art walks, art and craft expos. Remember to include travel time

  • Attendance at FFAA-sponsored meetings, general meetings, board meetings, AGMs, preparing reports, or other committee work on behalf of FFAA

 
Members Only – Password Protected Area

 

The password-protected members-only area is where members can find links to our bylaws, meeting agendas and minutes, policies and procedures, and sign up to volunteer at exhibitions, as well as promotional and demonstration events.

The members-only area can be accessed with the password available from the guild representatives on the FFAA board of directors. Ask at your guild for the name of the current representative. Individual members can contact the FFAA membership chairperson for a password.
