Volunteers will be responsible for arriving at their assigned positions on time. The USGA will conduct an orientation session for volunteers in August of 2022.


Q: Can I be scheduled (shift assignments) at the same time as my spouse, friend, etc.?

A: We will make every effort to accommodate your scheduling requests. Make sure to list your request on your volunteer application and select similar availability.


Q: How do I know my assignment?

A:  Volunteer assignments will be made to volunteers who have completed their registration online and submitted their volunteer payment. You will be able to log in to your volunteer account and view which committee you have been assigned to as well.


Q: When will I find out my volunteer schedule?

A: Volunteers will be sent an e-mail regarding Shift Availability in the June, 2022 We will use these forms to create the volunteer schedules for each committee. You will be notified of the dates you are scheduled to work in late July/early August of 2022.  As always, we will make every effort to accommodate your availability preferences; however, we cannot guarantee each request will be granted. If you are traveling from out of state and made travel arrangements, please indicate that on the form.


Q: If I don’t like my committee assignment – can I move to another committee?

A: All volunteer committee assignments will be final once made available. We will attempt to assign each volunteer to one of his or her committee preferences; however, in many cases this will not be possible due to the requests for certain committees greatly outnumbering their respective staffing requirements. If the committee preferences you selected are full, we will assign you to another committee that still has availability.


Q: If I am no longer able to volunteer, may I receive a refund?
