Have a great volunteer? Let us know!

The Maryland Consumer Rights Coalition is seeking nominees for recognition of their important volunteer work. The winner will be honored at our special 10th Anniversary Celebration & Annual Meeting on the evening of October 14, 2010 in Clarksville, MD.

Former Senator Paul Sarbanes will be there to receive our Lifetime Achievement Award, and Thomas Perez, Assistant U.S. Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division, will give the keynote address.

Volunteer areas of service could include helping others to understand their finances; helping people navigate or avoid the foreclosure process; advocacy in the area of consumer-protection legislation or policy; assisting low-income consumers prepare their tax returns, and the like. Past winners include a pro bono attorney, a fraud-hotline volunteer and an education coalition volunteer. The volunteer need not have “consumer advocate” in his/her job title or description.
