The VAC convenes the Council, a body composed of Team Leads/VAC Representatives, Volunteer Program Coordinator, VAC Chairperson, VAC Vice-Chair and special committee chairs/representatives. The Council works with the chairperson and the Volunteer Program Coordinator to examine issues of concern to the entire volunteer program, create volunteer program guidelines, and ensure a positive experience for all volunteers.
