Volunteer Board

The Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital Volunteers have a unique structure in that there is both a Director of Volunteer Services who has administrative responsibility for all hospital-based volunteer services, and a Volunteer Board that provides input and leadership for fundraising and special projects. Both share in development of community relations activities and promotional activities.

Officers on the volunteer board include:

The committee chairpersons’ role, with their co-chairs and members of their committees, is operational-focused, getting involved in the management and day-to-day issues of their committees, and reporting on committee activities and progress to the board each month.
