It is the intent of the program to encourage members to become active by volunteering at various activities and events sponsored or sanctioned by MCTA throughout the year. We would not be able to provide quality horse trials, clinics, and activities without the assistance of our amazing and dedicated volunteers and acknowledge that reward and recognition of these services are critical to the retention of volunteers in the organization.
MCTA has brought back and revamped the “MCTA Bucks” to members who volunteer at MCTA organized functions. MCTA bucks can be exchanged for discounts on entry fees to our events, cross country schooling, clinics held throughout the year, activities, and the banquet. They cannot be used for membership dues or to purchase items. Certificates are issued in two denominations: $10 for half-day (4 hours) of volunteering and $25 for a full day (8 hours) of volunteering. Each HT and Clinic Organizer will manage MCTA Bucks for their activity. MCTA Bucks Certificates can be combined. However, no residual value will be re-issued. For example: should someone turn in four – $25 certificates for an $85 entry fee; the residual $15 is not refunded. Legally, the certificate has no cash value and therefore cannot be traded for actual cash.
When you volunteer at our events, you get lunch and snacks, and of course the aforementioned MCTA bucks.
Volunteer Awards and Recognition
MCTA recognizes our most faithful volunteers with accolades and Volunteer of the Year awards at our Year End Awards Banquet. It’s a wonderful opportunity to feel great about giving to your community and feeling great about yourself.
