Shadbolt volunteer manager recognized

Shadbolt Centre for the Arts' Charlene Wee was recognized recently as an outstanding manager of volunteer resources with an IMPACT Award from the Administrators of Volunteer Resources BC (AVRBC).

The IMPACT award recognizes a person who has shown exceptional leadership and knowledge in volunteer management.

“Without Wee’s tireless work to strategically and effectively apply the time and talents of time donors, the volunteer programs in Burnaby that she manages wouldn’t be able to make the difference that they do," said AVRBC president Lindsay Baker.

“Wee has advocated for volunteer efforts and policies that support volunteerism in all her workplaces, and she works to spotlight the administration of volunteers as a rewarding career to young professionals.”
