    Personal Information

    Volunteers are extremely important to the Epilepsy Association of Calgary. Their value and efforts must not be understated. At the same time, however, attention must be given to the following in order to maintain high standards of service for our clients and the community.

    • Dependability, meaning punctuality and reliability in performance of volunteer duties and notifying the Public Education Coordinator in advance of absences from a volunteer activity.
    • Confidentiality, meaning that volunteers should be aware of the need to protect and respect the rights of the Epilepsy Association of Calgary’s clients and/or business by not disclosing information or personal details outside their volunteer activities.
