News for Administrators of Healthcare Volunteers

AHV Honored at MAHV Conference

At the recent Minnesota Association of Healthcare Volunteers Annual Conference, the President’s Award was presented to the Minnesota Health Care Gift Shop Association (MHCGSA) and Administrators of Healthcare Volunteers (AHV). Diane Damerow, President of MAHV, said that both organizations have contributed financially and with in-kind support. Both organizations have representation on the MAHV Leadership Board, playing active roles within the organization.

The award was received by Janene Riedeman and Deb Anderson. Janene Riedeman, Director of Volunteer Services at St. Cloud Hospital represents AHV and is part of the AHV leadership team. Deb Anderson, Supervisor for Volunteer Services and Guest Services and Gift Shop Manager at Essentia Health – St. Joseph’s Medical Center, Brainerd, is President of MHCGSA. Both Janene and Deb, while representing their respective organizations, have also been very active serving on several committees such as Legislative Day, Annual Conference and District Forums, as well as being active members of the Leadership Board.

Let’s Talk Healthcare

Another networking session is scheduled for November 1 from 9 – 10:30 a.m. at Sholom East Campus, in St. Paul, hosted by Lori Rodewald, volunteer coordinator. A call-in option will be available. Go to the MAVA website to register for this free networking session. It is open to anyone who leads the volunteer effort in a health care setting. One does not need to be a member of MAVA to attend. It is a great opportunity to meet your peers, ask questions and share ideas.

Do you know others who lead the volunteer effort in a healthcare organization? Encourage them to participate in one of our networking sessions. Maybe you could attend together. It would be a great way for them to learn about AHV.
