The Calgary Yacht Club is a not-for-profit Club run by volunteers. Our Club cannot succeed without the valued time, talent, and expertise of our volunteers. 

Volunteering at the Club

Volunteer Requirements for members

As a member of the Club, you are obligated to work ten (10) hours of volunteer time during the course of the season or pay a $175 work bondYou also have the option to help the Club by donating your work bond, even if you have worked your minimum 10 hours. Please contact the Club Manager at any time if you wish to do so. If your volunteer time is not included on the sign up sheet, you will need to email the Club Manager to provide notification of hours and work performed. Please note, it is the volunteer’s responsibility to have hours and tasks recorded.  Failing to do so may result in unrecorded hours. 

The Volunteer Commitment runs an annual cycle from October 1st to September 30th. If you have not fulfilled your volunteer obligation by September 30, you will be invoiced for the work bond.  You will have 30 days to pay the invoice either by cheque or credit card.  Should your work bond go unpaid, your membership will be suspended until such time that it is.

other volunteer opportunities

We want you to spend your volunteer time doing things you like to do!  Available opportunities will be sent out via an online sign-up called Sign Up Genius

Not a sailor, no problem? There are plenty of volunteer tasks that do not require any knowledge of sailing or racing. Additionally, there are plenty of jobs that are not physically challenging. Professional skills are greatly appreciated and especially valuable to the Club. If you are a professional, trades person of any type, or are able to contribute in someway, please let us know. We have members who snowplow in the winter, help with social media, kitchen help, and on the water support. Some professional skills needed from time to time are as follows:

  • Mechanic, 
  • Construction,
  • Electrician
  • Plumber, 
  • HVAC, 
  • Lawyer, 
  • IT Support, 
  • Communications and Marketing, 
  • Accounting, 
  • Food Services,
  • and more!

You can sign up for more than one job. Let's spread to work load over as many volunteers as possible. While 10 hours is only a minimum, there are Club members that volunteer many more hours than the minimum. Let’s all help...many hands make light work and a great Club experience for all.
