Annual Evaluation and Competency

As a reminder all volunteer staff are evaluated annually and are required to complete a competency packet. 2019 competency packets will be sent to those volunteers who started volunteering prior to 8/31/18.
Below is a timeline of what to expect. We ask that when you receive these forms that you complete them in a timely manner. 

  • First Week of October – Evaluations will be mailed via U.S. Mail for you to review, sign, and return
  • November 1, 2019 – Deadline for the return of signed evaluation
  • Mid November – Competency packets will be emailed with a link to   complete on-line. Volunteers without an email address will receive the competency packet via U.S. Mail
  • December 31, 2019 – Deadline for completion/return of competency forms
  • February 1, 2020 – Inactive letters will be sent to volunteers who have not returned their evaluation or completed/returned their competency form.
