ATD Atlanta Chapter -- Volunteer of the Month

As you hear us say frequently, we could not provide the great programming we continue to offer up for our chapter members without our amazing team of volunteers. We appreciate the difference this army of willing servants makes and to bring greater awareness to all chapter members of the important role that volunteers play, in 2017 we initiated the Volunteer of the Month Program. Here are a few things you should know:
  1. For each name listed here, there are literally dozens more volunteers that also contribute to the chapter, some in public ways and others more behind the scenes.
  2. Each month our Executive Board meets and discusses volunteers that have recently been going above-and-beyond to climb some formidable mountain or rise to a significant challenge that has made a difference for our chapter, our members, or in service make our amazing leadership teams’ jobs just a little easier.
  3. Here is the brief list of criteria used by the Executive Board for selecting our Volunteer of the Month:
      • The Volunteer of the Month is a current chapter volunteer that has demonstrated a “can do” attitude, a team spirit, and the willingness to go above-and-beyond.
      • Volunteers currently serving as a board member of either the Executive Board or the Board of Directors are not eligible to be Volunteer of the Month. (Rationale: Our board members constantly go above-and-beyond, but also have a more public leadership role with visibility on the website and very public recognition at our December meeting each year. We set up this award to honor the many additional volunteers that help carry the load to make our chapter greater!)
      • A previous Volunteer of the Month winner is not eligible to win again for a period of one year, but in most cases will not be considered again for 2-3 years to share the recognition with as many other volunteers as possible.
      • We appreciate the difference each and every volunteer makes!
