It's reappointment time for the UC Master Gardener Program! Before the reappointment process begins we would like to say, volunteers are the heart of the UC Master Gardener Program – thank you! You make the program impact possible. We hope you'll join us for another year of helping gardeners, extending research-based home horticulture, pest management, and sustainable landscape information to Californians.
UC Master Gardener Program volunteers can build on their outstanding work during the 2021-22 program year by reappointing for 2022-23. Annual reappointment is required for all volunteers working with UC Agriculture and Natural Resources (UC ANR).
Please read this update thoroughly and direct any questions regarding the reappointment process to your program coordinator, advisor, or county director. Reappointment takes place from June 1 through July 31. The process for reappointment can be done in 4 easy steps!
Step One: Select "Please Complete!" in VMS
- Log into VMS, https://vms-mg.ucanr.edu/
- Select "Please Complete!" under "Reappointment" in right column of your VMS home screen
Step Two: Click on and electronically sign all three forms
Step Three: Verify' Date Completed' column displays the date completed and print a copy for your records
Once you complete reappointment, the reappointment window will no longer appear on your VMS screen.
Step Four: Submit Insurance Fee (if required in your county)
The UC Master Gardener Program requires a $6.00 fee to cover accident and injury insurance. This fee is collected locally by county personnel, paid for by county fundraising, or combined with a county membership fee. All active, limited-active volunteers should contact their local UC Cooperative Extension program coordinator, advisor or county director for more information about local county requirements and, if required, how to submit payment.
