Details

WHEREAS communities are becoming increasingly reliant upon the need for volunteers who so freely contribute of their time, talent and expense in health care, education, emergency protection to persons and property, environment, recreation, arts and youth and other basic needed community services;

AND WHEREAS volunteers are required to pay annual membership dues or fees to the many organizations and service clubs that are the very foundations for volunteer community service;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that NCLGA and UBCM encourage senior levels of government to recognize the value of community service volunteers by providing for an income tax credit for all or part of membership dues or fees paid by those volunteers to bona fide organizations and service clubs that deliver needed community services.
