Each VWC Member is responsible for serving three (4) four - hour assignments as either a shop monitor or a tool crib monitor each year, unless specifically excused from this duty.
Members must undergo training prior to their first monitor duty and then a refresher training every two years. This training video applies only to the Rolling Acres Shop as a refresher for our members; but is NOT a substitute for attendance at the training class. (scroll down for Brownwood)
The refresher is divided into two parts, BOTH should be reviewed.

Monitor duty is an obligation to the VWC. It is as important as paying dues. Failure to comply can result in restriction from the Shop.
The morning shift starts at 7:45 AM; afternoon shift starts at 11:45 AM.
Changing Monitor Dates:
If it is necessary to change monitor dates, it is YOUR responsibility to do so. Contact your Monitor Coordinator or the Front Desk (either shop) to obtain lists of names and phone numbers of people with whom you may arrange an exchange. When the exchange has been agreed upon, inform your Monitor Coordinator or the Front Desk (either shop) of the needed changes and notify the Coordinators responsible for overseeing those periods.
REMINDER: Even if you are exempt from monitor duty because of other duties at the woodshop, you are still required to take monitor training every 2 years.
