SWIDOVS is a networking group of Volunteer Services Directors who meet monthly to share expertise, concerns, solutions, new program ideas, conference materials and resources.
SWIDOVS celebrated International Volunteer Manager’s Day at the Idaho State Capitol on November 5. Governor C. L. “Butch” Otter proclaimed the day as Idaho Volunteer Manager’s Day and the proclamation was read by Idaho Senator Patti Anne Lodge from District 13. Over 75 gathered to celebrate the contribution of Idaho’s Volunteer Program Managers to various for-profit, non-profit and government organizations. Guest speaker Nora Carpenter, President and CEO of United Way of the Treasure Valley congratulated the group with impressive stories and statistics on the merit of these professional leaders to the success of Idaho’s social structure.
SWIDOVS also presented the first Directors of Volunteer Excellence (D.O.V.E.) awards. The goal of these awards is to recognize volunteer administrators for their outstanding contributions to the profession and their colleagues and for their promotion of quality volunteer experiences in Idaho. Brad Talbutt was selected as this year’s Outstanding New Volunteer Administrator and Betsy Hammar received the Excellence in Volunteer Management award.
