As a member of your club’s planning committee for an upcoming fundraiser dinner, you are responsible for planning the event’s live auction. You’ve spent weeks securing sponsors and items for the auction. The dinner is a huge success and your club meets its fundraising goals. At the end of the year, your club president asks all members to report volunteer service hours. You report all the hours you spent working on the fundraiser, but your club president does not count preparatory work as a service project contribution. You strongly believe the many hours spent ensuring your goals were met should be recognized.
