"Volunteer Agreement and Release in right column of VMS home screen" Doesn't seem to exist on my screen. There are buttons for add and view hours, but that's it.

Hi Joe - Reappointment will be turned on tomorrow, June 1. Check back on VMS tomorrow and it should appear on your home screen under the hours section. - Melissa

Hi Silvia- Congratulations on your graduation and welcome! Yes, the reappointment process must be completed by First-Year Master Gardeners like yourself. When completing the Annual Volunteer Agreement and Request for Reappointment you will choose the "1st Year Volunteer" agreement from the drop down menu. -Lauren

Are there any charges associated with the Reappointment process in Orange County?

Hi Beth- Any charges associated with Reappointment are done at the county level. Each county has a slightly different process for collecting fees so please check with your county coordinator to see how they would like to receive payment. -Lauren

I signed the re-appointment screen and answered all the questions. Yet, when I open the Home Screen, it still says Please Complete. Why?

Hi Lydia- Thank you for completing reappointment so timely. I just looked into your VMS account and don't see any lingering signs of reappointment on your home screen. I then looked at your reappointment status from and admin side and all your paperwork is complete! Great Job. -Lauren

I have no message on my screen for reappointment. It just has add and view hours. I am a new graduate.

Hi Jude- Congratulations on becoming a UC Master Gardener. I looked you up in VMS and your achievement status is TRAINEE, since you graduated it should be FIRST YEAR MASTER GARDENER for you and the other graduates of your class. I sent you an email with instructions on what to do. -Lauren

Hello, I am still not able to see the reappointment links. I have just graduated from our Riverside chapter. The links referenced in your FAQ do not show on my VMS homepage. Any suggestions?  
Thanks in advance for your help.

When I attended the meeting on the new VMS system, Rosa Olaiz told us there would be a place to submit our payment for reappointment. I have looked and looked, but I cannot find it. Anyone know where it is. Otherwise, I guess I will just have to drive over to the office and pay in person.

Hello April- Thank you for your question. I am going to forward your message onto Rosa Olaiz on how you can submit payment online. -Lauren

Hi, I was unsure as to how to answer the Drivers license question. Please advis. Thank you.

Hi Tamara, If you are going to be driving as part of your volunteer work for the university you will need to answer "True" and enter in that you have a DL and the required insurance coverage. An example of driving while acting as a volunteer would be transporting materials for a booth display to an event. Check with your local county coordinator if you would like additional information or email me at mgwomack@ucanr.edu and I would be happy to connect you with more help. Many thanks - Melissa
