Community Service

Community Service has and continues to be one of our organization's main goals. We have an established program that both assists charitable organizations while recognizing our members.


Community Service (CS) Points

With the approval of the Executive Board, many events or activities are selected that support local charities. A member receives 1 point for each event, and must earn at least 5 points per year to receive a community service pin presented at the annual LVCA Awards Banquet.
