Volunteer Incentive Programs

Getting involved as a volunteer or official is as easy as going to a local event and volunteering to help. Volunteers are issued a license just like the competition drivers, and can work their way up through the four levels of licenses by participating at different events and gaining the knowledge and experience necessary to hold a national specialty license. SCCA licensed officials help staff most of the motorsport events held in the United States in one capacity or another.

SCCA Volunteer Incentive Program

The SCCA national office has a program that offers discounts on your national dues based on your participation as a volunteer at SCCA events. To record your participation you may follow these steps:

  1. Go to http://ams.scca.com and login or create an account. Every member should do this anyway, but especially volunteers and region officials.
  2. After logging-in please click the “My Membership” tab on the left.
  3. At the top of the new panel click on “Volunteer Participation” link located above the blue “SCCA Membership” title bar. A separate new window will popup on which you can add a new event.
  4. After you put in the date of the first day of that event, press “Enter” and wait for the page to refresh so that the drop-down for the location is active. Add the number of days you worked and click “Save”
  5. Add an entry for each SCCA Club Racing event you worked by repeating steps 3 and 4.

This is an official record and will be used to calculate your National Dues for 2009. Effective January 1, 2008, the Club Racing Volunteer Incentive program offers this graduated dues discount structure for membership renewal:
