The Volunteer Center’s 45th Annual Meeting saw election of a new president of the Board – David Warshaw, of Ho-Ho-Kus. Mr. Warshaw replaces Elaine Walsh, of Oradell, whose term as president expired. Mr. Warshaw has been a member of the Board since 2002 and an officer since 2005. He was an integral member of the planning team that founded what is now Bergen LEADS, the county’s premier civic leadership program. Mr. Warshaw retired from an active career with GE, most recently as executive director of GE’s global volunteer program. He is currently the principal of VISTAS Volunteer Management, which provides consultation to corporations on their volunteer programming.
Sonja Clark, of United Water, was elected as First Vice President to replace Mr. Warshaw.
We would also like to welcome newly elected Board members, Joanne Westphal, Vice President and Regional Market Manager of TD Bank; Jose Vicente, an advisor with Ameriprise Financial Services Inc.; and Katherine Norian, a community volunteer from Oradell. Both Mrs. Westphal and Mr. Vicente are graduates of the Bergen LEADS program
These community leaders join an active cadre of Volunteer Center board members poised to carry the work of the organization to new heights. Welcome aboard!
