The Yellowknife Elks Lodge recognizes that it is dependent upon its members and their volunteer efforts to not only raise funds for the Lodge, but to carry out its various community functions and activities. As such, a point system was developed to recognize such efforts and is called the "Volunteer Point System & Award Policy".
The purpose of the Volunteer Point System and Award Policy is to keep a record of the events that the Lodge members volunteer for and as such members are then able to trade their points to attend Lodge sanctioned events and activities.
