Volunteer Council

The Arvada Center Volunteer Council was established for the purpose of enhancing communication for both the Arvada Center Management and the Arvada Center volunteers. Representatives to the Volunteer Council are appointed by the Executive Director.  The Council meets  monthly to discuss items of interest or concern to the volunteer program.  The Volunteer Council may expend funds for sanctioned activities related to volunteer recognition and/or activities that benefit volunteers.
