One key way our volunteers contributed to our association in the last year was the JPMA board of directors approved a comprehensive strategic plan in late 2019. The incredible foresight baked into the plan allowed it to be used as a solid guidepost for association activity despite the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic. 

Something we couldn't do without our volunteers is guide policy for the benefit of all members in an incredibly complex industry. JPMA volunteers work collaboratively with JPMA staff while serving as subject matter experts. In particular, the members of our Certification Committee are brilliant, always make themselves available, and are an amazing resource!

accelerating the development of modalities and therapeutics used most recently in the vaccines produced in response to COVID-19 and much more.

One key way our volunteers contributed to our association in the last year was by providing critical resources to their community in a crisis. As PPS members faced changes, challenges, and uncertainties, the volunteers of the COVID-19 Advisory Committee gave their time and talents selflessly. Through their personal sacrifice and commitment, we were able to move nimbly, execute efficiently, innovate, and develop necessary resources for members and the profession to navigate the pandemic.




 

One key way our volunteers contributed to our association in the last year was by providing fun self-guided, at-home projects that were accessible to anyone—members and nonmembers alike—online. In response to the potential isolation and loneliness of quarantine, which impacted chapter activities, needlepoint store access, and ANG national meetings, ANG volunteers launched "Holed Up Minis," a series of small projects that stitchers could do from home, using their existing materials without having to invest in new supplies or classes.  Volunteers created the projects and shared them weekly on the ANG website. Members were delighted to see the new designs and share their finished work with the ANG community.

Something we couldn't do without our volunteers is
produce the bi-monthly magazine Needle Pointers, which showcases new stitching projects, techniques, and resources, as well as ANG news, information, and chapter ideas. All content is curated by volunteers. 

Our volunteers make our community, industry, and society better by
teaching, preserving, and promoting the art of needlepoint and introducing it and making it accessible to a new generation of stitchers.

One key way our volunteers contributed to our association in the last year was providing the roadmap for staff to implement necessary changes and relief efforts for our customers, including the implementation of exam remote proctoring. As the pandemic impacted the Commission, the board moved swiftly to approve the strategic approach related to customer service, communications and operations.

Something we couldn't do without our volunteers is maintain a high-quality exam and educational materials. CCMC's volunteers serve as subject matter experts to support exam development efforts and educational offerings to support certification and recertification, lending their invaluable experience and knowledge to the Commission.

Our volunteers make our community, industry, and society better by
advocating for professional excellence through comprehensive professional certification programs and education. CCMC's volunteers promote, advance, and advocate for consumer protection, quality case management, and disability management practice, and ethical standards and behavior while providing our community with an active voice and presence in healthcare.

Our volunteers make our community, industry, and society better by being educators, advocates, researchers, and more, all in the name of improving patient outcomes. ASHT volunteers could have chosen to just be a recipient of member benefits, but their passion for hand and upper extremity therapy provides these individuals with the energy to create an educational offering and/or service, develop a clinical position paper, craft a legislative response to protect the delivery of care to patients, teach, mentor and perform research. The examples are endless, and our hope during National Volunteer Week is that all ASHT volunteers feel the genuine and deep appreciation we extend to them for sharing their gifts.

O
ne key way our volunteers contributed to our association in the last year was being open-minded and forward-thinking in delivering education and networking during the pandemic. The IAQA pivoted from a live event to develop an exceptional and successful Global Virtual Annual Meeting & Expo with representation from more than 28 countries.




One key way our volunteers contributed to our association in the last year was helping reach out to our members throughout 2020 letting them know we are here to support them, in this together, and offering words of support and camaraderie during those strange and scary times!

Something we couldn't do without our volunteers is keep our virtual (and soon, in-person!) education going. Our volunteers are the backbone of our seminars, educational sessions, Q&As, and working groups. Without our IECA volunteers, the IECA wouldn't have such a dynamic and expert lineup of educational offerings, and we can't thank them enough.

Our volunteers make our community, industry, and society better by continuing to provide support, expertise, and a helping hand to other energy industry professionals around the globe. In the times of Winter Storm Uri, COVID-19, and other tumultuous situations, IECA members always know they can turn to each other to ask questions, gain diverse insight, and more. 


One key way our volunteers contributed to our association in the last year was by actively creating posts for social media to increase engagement. Our social media committee worked with AH’s Marcom team to create a shared calendar to ensure NOVA was posting information relevant to the VA nursing community. Volunteers learned how to add images and posts to complement the work the marketing team is doing.

Something we couldn't do without our volunteers is direct outreach into the individual VA facilities across the US and Puerto Rico to promote the benefits of belonging to NOVA. Our volunteers actively participate in recruitment and retention and communicate the value of NOVA to their colleagues.

Our volunteers make our community, industry, and society better by
demonstrating their dedication to NOVA and the Veterans they serve. They take the time to make sure our nation's heroes are comfortable and cared for. Even during this time of social distancing, NOVA nurses are still providing the human connection patients need to help them heal as they navigate illness and pandemic fear.

One key way our volunteers contributed to our association in the last year was working tirelessly with AAHFN to ensure the success of the organization. Beth Davidson, AAHFN President, is the Director of the Heart Failure Disease Management Program at TriStar Centennial Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. She is establishing a regional heart failure network throughout the TriStar Health system and directs daily operations of all cardiovascular specialty clinics, including Heart Failure, Hypertension, and Structural Heart Disease. During the past year in the midst of the onslaught of COVID-19 in her hospital system, Beth guided AAHFN through a quick pivot from an in-person to a live virtual annual meeting and agreed to take on an extra year of the presidency with the AAHFN due to the impact the pandemic was having on our nurse volunteers professionally. Beth has handled the curve balls that the pandemic has thrown at AAHFN with leadership and professionalism.

Something we couldn't do without our volunteers is
provide world-class education. As virtual education with AAHFN has had to increase, we have had to rely heavily on our member volunteers for educational content development and speaking support. Given the stress that COVID-19 has put on the healthcare community, it has been more important than ever to utilize our members and their expertise to produce educational content. Beth came up with a plan to leverage the expertise of our membership with a membership catalog. This is instrumental during the pandemic. 

Our volunteers make our community, industry, and society better by leading the way in caring for and teaching patients and their families how to live with heart failure. All of the volunteers of AAHFN impact the community every day through the important work that they do.
