Regional District of the East Kootenay on the hunt for outstanding volunteers


If you know an outstanding volunteer in one of the rural areas in the region, the RDEK wants to hear from you!

Nomination forms are now available for the 2014 Electoral Area Volunteer of the Year and, as it has in past years, the Regional District will once again be honouring one outstanding volunteer from each of its six Electoral Areas.

“Our Volunteer of the Year program recognizes an individual or couple from each of our Electoral Areas and gives us the opportunity to pay tribute to them and to all the volunteers who give selflessly to contribute to the spirit, culture and people of their communities,” says RDEK Board Chair, Rob Gay.

Nominees must be a resident of an Electoral Area and make voluntary contributions to the spirit, culture or people of the community.

Nomination forms can be filled out or downloaded from the RDEK website ( and can also be picked up at the Cranbrook and Columbia Valley RDEK offices, from the Electoral Area Advisory Commissions and various Community Associations.

The deadline for nominations is February 27, 2014.
