ENS Volunteer Recognition Program ‘unique’ in Canada’s numismatic community

The Edmonton Numismatic Society’s Volunteer Recognition Program is unique in Canada’s numismatic community. Open to all current ENS members, the program was created to allow the ENS as a whole to publicly recognize the invaluable dedication and commitment of its volunteer members in their efforts to help the ENS realize its goal of being the most dynamic and vibrant collector society in Canada.

As reported in its June newsletter, The Planchet, the ENS Volunteer Recognition Program is comprised of two parts. The first is the Silver Maple Leaf Volunteer Award, which is awarded annually to each current ENS member who has dedicated a minimum of four hours of volunteer time. Each qualifying ENS member is awarded a full one-ounce Royal Canadian Mint Silver Maple Leaf. A Silver Maple Leaf is awarded in three categories, namely: General Volunteer, The Planchet and the Board of Directors / Executive. Every current ENS member can participate in any one or all three of these categories.

A gold sovereign or equivalent is awarded as part of the Go for the Gold Volunteer Recognition Program.

The second part of the ENS Volunteer Recognition Program is the Go for the Gold. Here each member’s volunteer activity is additionally recognized by one entry into a draw for a gold coin per activity participated in. The gold coin is a gold sovereign or its equivalent. There are two categories for entry into the Go for the Gold, namely: General Volunteer and The Planchet. Every current ENS member can par[1]ticipate in one or both categories. The number of entries per volunteer member is solely dependent upon the number of individual volunteer activities that members participates in.
