Minnesota Association of Healthcare Volunteers
by Diane Damerow
I am very excited to serve as your next President of our newly named organization,
Minnesota Association of Healthcare Volunteers. It is indeed an exciting time for all of
us! It will take some time to get everthing done so that we can use the new name,
probably till the first of the year. We will be making the necessary legal changes,
implementing our new logo and creating some products for all of you to use. So just
use what you have until January 1.
With the change we also have revised our by-laws. We will be talking about them at our
fall district meetings as well as sending them via email to all of our members. They have
been simplified so that you can actually understand them!
A bit about me- I am a professional volunteer in my retirement. My husband somtimes says
I should get a real job so I could make some money! But I view this time as my time to
give back to my community. I also volunteer in my church and several other organizations
including my own auxiliary. My career of 34 years was dedicated to designing, developing
and implementing educational programming for youth (4-H) and adults in family development
and gerontology. I am married to Ken and we have two sons, one married with two wonderful
grandchildren. In my spare time I like to travel, spend time with family and friends and flower garden.
Don't forget to "like" us on Facebook too.
