Volunteer Council Feature
One New President, Two New Members, Three Sustainers!
It takes many talents to keep the Volunteer Council functioning smoothly. Each year the VC elects new leaders, selects new members, and engages Sustainers to energize and bring new ideas to our efforts on behalf of orchestra volunteers across the country. The next three articles focus on some of the talented volunteers who will be leading us this year.
First we learn about Tiffany Ammerman, our new VC President, whose love of orchestras and volunteers in her home state of Texas led her to serve six years on the Volunteer Council Board. Next we meet our newest members Bruce Colquhoun and Laurie Skjerseth, both of whom have served as orchestra volunteers and past presidents. And we’ll also learn about three vibrant and experienced Sustainers, Laura Hyde, Heather Moore, and Helen Shaffer, all former VC leaders and active volunteers with their home orchestras.
Volunteer Council President 2018-19
by Janet Cabot
Boundless Energy and a Big Heart
Her enthusiasm, energy, and steadfastness are noted by friends and family alike. "Tiffany can juggle more things than a Ringling Bros clown and still keep it all together with a smile on her face and joy in her heart, " says one friend. Another friend comments, "Her energy is boundless and her love of orchestra goes far beyond the notes; it is the sharing of the sound with others that gives her the most joy." Her husband Jim simply says: "She is the heart and soul of our family. She is our rock."
Judging by these comments, the Volunteer Council is in very good hands!
