Volunteer Nation: A Heartfelt Cheers to the Volunteers of 2021

We’re very nearly to the finish line of 2021, and we owe each and everyone who contributed a volunteer hour over the past 12 months a huge thank-you. Collectively, a whopping grand total of 64,528 hours were logged on Eventing Volunteers. 64,528! That’s equal to 2,688 days, which is equal to over seven years.

Cheers to you all! We’d like to take this edition of Volunteer Nation to recognize the top five volunteers from each USEA area, with links to the complete scoreboard for each. Additional scoreboards can be viewed here.

Did you know that over 1,000 lifetime volunteer hours earns you a silver medal from the USEA Volunteer Incentive Program? Two people earned this prestigious honor this year.

As always, you can earn merit points when you donate your time through the USEA’s Volunteer Incentive Program. Registering to volunteer through EventingVolunteers.com makes it easy and seamless to both find a job and shift as well as learn what your role will entail.

Until next year …
