WE NEED VOLUNTEERS!
DID YOU KNOW…..THAT THE
NSPEC IS A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION?
A non-profit organization (NPO) is an organization that uses surplus revenues to achieve its goals rather than distributing them as profit or dividends.
While not-for-profit organizations are permitted to generate surplus revenues, they must be retained by the organization for its self-preservation, expansion, or plans. The NSPEC has a board of directors, a general manager and some paid staff and volunteers!
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING FOR THE NSPEC EVENTS, PLEASE CONTACT THE OFFICE! 902-893-9222
It’s great reward for minimal time commitment; the events on the grounds here are fun and top notch!
