In 2008, the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) was ready to create a new model for their chapters. Fast forward to February 2012, when on a volunteer leadership call, three local leaders shared how the new model is working in their states. We heard proof that volunteer leaders will embrace change and in fact make it their own. AADE had successfully thrown out the dirty bath water (old structure) without losing their members and volunteers.

A great conversation happened over on the ASAE Components Section Collaborate group. It began with a simple request for a sample committee charter or work plan; It morphed though into a dialog on the value of committees.

Adhocracy is a term for volunteers coined by (some say by Nancy Macduff of Volunteer Today) about the late 80s for a trend towards episodic volunteering – that is volunteering in short, one-up stints.

Yesterday in the closing hours of National Volunteer Week I had a conversation with one of our best volunteers, June Ring, president of the ISES DC, during which she told me how much she and the board appreciated Mariner. Her year is coming to a close and she thanked us. But it is us who should thank her – and her board. They have been extraordinary volunteers!
