All applications may not be approved. *PLEASE READ
A few reasons you may not get approved:
1 - You or someone on your team has a felony on their record.
2 - If you do not have a DD-214. Out of your mandatory 4 team members, 50% of your team must consist of all Honorable discharge Veterans. Sunday Shop Days are 100% Veteran atmosphere and must be maintained. If you are a civilian on the team, helping run OCB does not give you access to therapy sessions. Your appointed President and Chapter Founder must be an Honorable Discharge Veteran.
3 - Spelling and grammar issues in your social media posts and email. I know it's difficult being a Veteran and being professional but we have to carry our selves in a professional manor with our communications inside and outside the organization. Spelling our organization's name correctly is critical. Information being shared correctly is very important to our joint operations nation wide.
4 - Communication. Meaning: communicate through e-mail, phone, social media as a team so that the National Headquarters is always up to speed. If technology is difficult to navigate then this probably isn't for you.
5 - Use of social media and or technology. Spell checking before you send / post. Our most used form of technology is social media. The best way we can spread the word and raise funds for your organization. Without it you're missing out on missed opportunities for funding and also missing connecting with Veterans.
6 - If the Veteran population is too low in your surrounding area. This causes a transportation and support issue.
It may take up to 1 week for a response due to our volume of incoming applications and other communications. We are also still developing the operations packet with detailed instruction on training for operating and reporting back to OCB Headquarters. This may take some time but this application is a good start.
Once approved the next step would be to start planning your first fundraiser with our team.
The funds that you raise would be used to purchase parts for your builds. OCB funds will not be used to pay for your property or bills. This is a voluntary system and if you cannot afford to allow OCB to operate in your garage one day a week without needing financial assistance then you will be disqualified as someone able to operate an extension of OCB 4 days a month.
The outcome of the first fundraiser will determine the amount of tools and equipment you will be able to purchase in order to properly work on projects in your shop.
We look forward to spread this Hot Rod Therapy across the entire U.S.
