NetVU Announces Volunteer Development Program
Mary Kelly, CEO of Productive Leaders Inc., Heads Up New NetVU Initiative
IRVING, Texas (April 3, 2017) — During a special, invitation-only session at NetVU17 in Nashville, Dr. Mary Kelly, PhD, CDR, announced a new program offered as a benefit to NetVU members — the NetVU Volunteer Development Program. The new offering, launching in June 2017, is the latest in expert-level learning to be offered by NetVU, the Network of Vertafore Users.
The NetVU Executive Board recognizes that NetVU members volunteer their time and talent in the spirit of service to others, and personal development is an added benefit to their service. The backgrounds of NetVU volunteers are diverse and their skills are varied. For NetVU to achieve its goals and reach its full potential, those volunteers must be well prepared to carry out the responsibilities of the positions they hold as well as understand the relevance of their work to NetVU's overall mission. By providing world-class leadership training for its volunteers and staff, NetVU believes it creates opportunities for personal and professional growth that will attract members and provide a path for them to become engaged, enthusiastic volunteers.
“NetVU is a volunteer driven organization. This training program will ensure the need for qualified, enthusiastic, engaged members is met,” says Barb Dale, NetVU Chairman.
More than 40 NetVU17 attendees joined the special session on Friday afternoon to hear Mary describe the components and qualifications of the new program. Melissa Bond, NetVU member relations manager, spoke about the value of volunteers to NetVU and the various volunteer opportunities waiting to be filled. A recorded version of the session is available for viewing in NetVU University. Click here for the video and Mary Kelly’s bio.
