Community Volunteer Network: New Leaders & Spring Events

CVN Chair's Report

It's been almost a year since I took over the role of Chairperson and it's been a truly great year. Working with a dedicated group of volunteers, meeting fellow community leaders, and inspiring others to take on greater leadership roles within CVN have strengthened my bond to Arlington and those we serve.

Though my term as Chairperson is coming to an end, it is with great pleasure that I announce CVN's new Leadership Team:

  • Meredith Meade, Chairperson
  • Kim Lamon-Loperfido, Social Chair
  • Macy Jenkins, Communications Chair
  • Brynn Slate, Recurring Volunteering Chair

These ladies bring years of volunteer leadership and a deep commitment to community service to CVN. While I wish them the best of luck, I know they won't need it!

As for me, I am excited to remain involved with CVN as our County Liaison. Though my role within our group will change, I am looking forward to helping CVN, its volunteers, and its leaders continue to thrive.

As always, thank you for being a great group of volunteers!


P.S. Extra special thanks to Sharon Tewksbury-Bloom and Kellen MacBeth -- both are great role models and the best supporters one could hope for!
