RMEF Recognizes National Volunteer Week
MISSOULA, Mont.—Built upon a base of volunteerism and entering its 30th year of conservation work benefitting elk and elk country, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation recognizes and honors the upcoming National Volunteer Week by “Celebrating 30 Years of Volunteers” and saluting all those who serve the organization’s mission.
“Without dedicated volunteers who work hard and care, there would be no Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation,” said David Allen, RMEF president and CEO. “We have more than 10,000 volunteers whose passion and dedication translates to hands-on projects they carry out in the field and fundraising dollars that pay for scores of on-the-ground conservation projects that ensure the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage.”
In recognition of its volunteers, RMEF will give away seven trips for two to Elk Camp scheduled to take place December 4-7 at The Mirage in Las Vegas, Nevada. Each trip has a value of $1,050 and includes two full registrations to Elk Camp events and lodging, checking in on Wednesday, December 3 and checking out Sunday, December 7.
To qualify, entrants are required to be active RMEF volunteers and must ENTER HERE from now through April 4th. One random drawing will take place every day April 6th through the 12th with daily winners announced via RMEF social media platforms Facebook, Instagram (@rmef_official) and Twitter. Winners will also be notified via email.
Elk Camp is RMEF’s national convention. It will take place in during the first four days of the National Finals Rodeo and also features the new Hunter Christmas Exposition, presented by Cabela’s. Additional events include the World Elk Calling Championships, world class auctions, top country music performances, Volunteer Fun Night and much more.
“RMEF volunteers are the life-blood and we appreciate all they do for the organization,” added Allen. “And we salute all volunteers in whatever capacity they selflessly serve in various endeavors and organizations across the country.”
