Val Green, Volunteer Victoria’s Executive Director over the past 10 years, has begun her transition to retirement. She has worked with the organization for over 20 years and has been an inspiring, adept, and visionary leader not only for Volunteer Victoria, but also in the community. A board member recently shared that no task is too big, or too small for Val; an apt description of Val’s ability to make great things happen while including and inspiring her teams along the way.
We thank Val for her years of commitment, hard work, and good humour, and we wish her well in the years of adventure and gardening that lay ahead.

The Board of Directors of Volunteer Victoria, after an extensive search, is pleased to announce that effective June 16, 2011, Lisa Mort-Putland will become the new Executive Director of Volunteer Victoria.
Lisa has a strong professional background in the non-profit sector. She comes to Volunteer Victoria from her position as Development Manager for Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Victoria and brings together a unique mix of the analytical, creative and strategic thinking skills that we believe will lead our community in volunteer engagement and commitment.
The board is excited by the skills and experience that Lisa will bring to her role as Executive Director of Volunteer Victoria.
Lisa is delighted at the opportunity to contribute to the Volunteer Victoria team. “I believe so strongly in the mission and core values of Volunteer Victoria. It is a privilege to apply my experiences and knowledge in an organization that helps empower others to grow and learn through positive engagement and volunteer leadership.”
“It is also a great honour to be asked to continue the wonderful work and excellent standard of care and attention paid by Val Green and to continue the organization’s commitment to programs and practices that support and enhance innovation, partnership, and service to our community and stakeholders.”
As Lisa prepares to join Volunteer Victoria, Val Green, our Executive Director for the past 9 years, looks forward to retirement and to new ways of being involved in her community.
Val is very excited by the appointment of Lisa, “She brings energy, passion, skilled relationship building and a strong understanding of the local non-profit community. All the things that our organization is known for. The capacity of Volunteer Victoria will be enhanced and enriched through her leadership.”
“I look forward to transitioning my role to Lisa,” adds Val. “She will be leading a dedicated team of hard working staff, each of whom brings experience, skill and passion to their work. I know they are looking forward to building on the new opportunities this transition brings.”
