The Volunteer Experience

We are so appreciative of the hours and energy our volunteers give to the Council, and are always looking for ways to make their time with us rewarding personally and professionally. On July 12, the Board of Directors participated in a workshop dedicated to improving the volunteer experience. This informative discussion uncovered a lot of great information and brainstorming of ideas. This is an on-going effort and we're excited for the enhancements coming soon. Contact us today if you're interested in becoming a WWCMA volunteer!

Volunteer Spotlight

Shannon Lane, Regional Sales Director, New England, Purchasing Power

What’s your passion when it comes to wellness? I became a single mother when my children were in diapers. At the time, I had never heard the term "financial wellness," but learned pretty quickly what "financial sickness" felt like. There were very few resources available through employers to help navigate temporary financial setbacks, establish and maintain budgets, build credit, assist with student loan repayment, and essentially address the hidden shame many employees feel around financial insecurity. My passion lies in educating employers on the overwhelming need for these types of programs, and how deeply they can impact the  lives and health of their staff.

What have been the benefits of your Council involvement? I have been overwhelmed by the warmth, passion and professional diversity of the community the Council has created, as well as the dedication its members have toward physical and financial wellness.  When I walked into my first event, I felt like I had just met a group of people whom I was meant to know, both personally and professionally. The outpouring of support and camaraderie has been one of the best professional experiences of my career.
