Expanding the Concept of Volunteer Recognition

On July 11, 2014, CICS held an appreciation dinner in honour of its devoted volunteers. Nearly 100 volunteers and their families turned out, and along with CICS board members, special guests and staff, they celebrated the achievement over food, entertainment, individual acknowledgement and special tributes. It was indeed a memorable event that may last for some time.

CICS is very grateful for the committed effort of our volunteers that make our work possible. In the aforementioned recognition event, CICS specially presented Lifetime Volunteer Achievement Certificates to the families of two late Tai Chi masters, Mr. Sum-Ming Cheung and Mr. Jack To Chan, for their outstanding 40 years of service. They had selflessly given their talents and time to Tai Chi classes that will impact generations to come.

CICS considers our volunteers as ambassadors, representing the agency during programs, at events, and making impact in the community through their individual effort of giving and sharing. But they are not to be taken for granted. Public recognition of volunteers in the form of an annual appreciation dinner is just one of the means to acknowledge their contributions. Volunteer Services will develop volunteer recognition standards and practices in different forms to thank the volunteers both formally and informally on an ongoing basis. One of the best informal ways to start practice acknowledging the volunteers is to thank them every single time they help complete the assigned tasks. This means that staff members are encouraged to simply express a grateful note to the volunteers who have helped complete the assignment, regardless of its scale of importance or size. This is a good beginning to cultivate an appreciative environment in which for the volunteers to thrive. To this end, the Volunteer Services will do its best with all program staff to first attain this simple goal of showing gratitude to our volunteers.
