Question: News reports say that the PA governor has waived the fees for volunteer clearances beginning July 25, 2015. Is there any chance our renewal date for renewing our current clearances will change?
Answer: Per conference policy it is still July 1, 2015.
Question: Do our volunteers submit the online application and check a certain spot for the fee waived?
Answer: Since this does not take effect until July 25th, I don't know what it will look like online. I do know that when people do this online or on paper they will have to make sure they check the VOLUNTEER box. Hopefully that will give the designation for no fee.
