How does your OLLI submit and calculate volunteer hours?

How does your OLLI submit and calculate volunteer hours? Do you use an online system?

  1. We created an online form using Formstack.com, which allows volunteers to submit their hours online at their convenience. To see our form, go to:

  2. We have a sign in book we keep in the office. This tracks office and mailing volunteers. We then calculate the number of other volunteer hours by multiplying our committee meetings times the number of people. We do the same for our board, etc. This provides us with a best estimate.
