The Edmonton Highland Dancing Association (EHDA) could not run all our competitions so successfully without the help of many volunteers!  Over the years, we have tried various methods of enlisting volunteers for each competition, most recently relying on people to sign up on their own accord through the competition entry form.

Unfortunately, fewer and fewer people are signing up and those that do are mostly the same people.  Everyone needs to take an active part; we cannot continue to leave this up to a few committed people!  This is the reason the EHDA is instituting a new volunteer commitment policy.

Click on this link for a description of all the Volunteer Roles you can sign up for.

None of the volunteer roles are difficult to perform or complicated to learn and there will always be someone to answer your questions and ensure you are able to fulfill the role you have volunteered for.

Dancers 16 years of age and older can definitely fulfill a volunteer commitment – doesn’t always have to be mom or dad!
