Opportunity Request Form

NOTE: Please review the existing Approved Opportunities List before requesting a new Opportunity.

If you do not find what you are looking for there, then fill out the form below and press the “Submit” button to send the OpportunityRequest Form. If you have questions, please direct them to the VH/AT Project Coordinator at vhat@bptmn.org for review.

Note that requests are not automatically approved. The complete process is

  1. Member makes a request to the VH/AT chair using the form below
  2. VH/AT committee accumulates all requests for the month and makes a set of recommendations to the Board at its next meeting.
    These Recommendations are made based on a fairly lengthy set of guidelines from the state as to what are acceptable and unacceptable Opportunities and activities.
  3. The Board accepts/rejects/modifies those recommendations at its next regularly scheduled monthly and documents those decisions in the minutes for that meeting
  4. The minutes are approved at the next Board meeting.  On occasion, the previous decisions are are clarified or amended prior to the final approval.
  5. After the minutes are approved, the web team will add the activities to the Approved Opportunities List

We’re trying to streamline this process, but for now it is what it is.  Just keep track of your dates and times on a piece of paper (low-tech but simple) and enter them all retroactively once the new item is approved. If you have further questions, contact our VH/AT Coordinator at vhat@bptmn.org .


New Project Request

  • Please make sure this partner is not already on the Hours Entry Page Partner dropdown
  • Try to Generalize this if possible. For example "Trail guide" instead of "Christmas 2014 Trail Guide"
    An ongoing activity is something like trail maintenance A single occurrence might be something like building the new trail to begin with.
    Note that some activities can be used for both. An existing example is the Chapter's monthly speaker. The Speaker gets VH for giving the talk and the listeners get AT for hearing it. But Trail Maintenance would probably be VH only.
  • If unknown, please say so
  • If unknown, please say so
  • This can be dollars or time or material or anything else that is necessary to get it accomplished. This field is required, but NONE is an acceptable entry
