Virginia will speak on the challenges and rewards of motivating volunteer involvement in not-for-profit projects and providing a positive experience for those who take part.
About Our Speaker: Virginia Papadopoulos
AS manage of dozens of community service projects (while never earning a penny doing so), Virginia Papadopoulos truly exemplifies the volunteer spirit. After an award-winning career as a sales professional at Tech Data, Virginia is the President of General Federation of Woman's Clubs (GFWC) North Pinellas Woman's Club and also serves as GFWC District 14 Representative for GFWC Flroida State President's Project, Canine Companions for Wounded Veterans.
Over the past several years, Virginia has served North Pinellas Woman's Club as the club's Arts Committee Chair, Home Life Committee Chair, and Juniorettes advisor as well as club President. In those roles, Virginia has led and supported projects in support of many local charities, including Ovacome, Kimberly Home, RCS Haven, Community Pride Child Care, Special Olympics, ACS Relay for Life and the Boley Center. Right now, Virginia is organizing a car show, Harbor Sounds Ruff Ride and Roll, as a fundraising project for Canine Companions.
In addition to NPWC, Virginia has led individual fundraising projects for the Upper Suncoast Dog Training Club (past Vice President) and the Top of hte Bay Garden Club (past board member) as well as processing adoptions for Mid-Florida Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Rescue. In recognition of the depth and breadth of her volunteer activities, Virginia was nominated as a finalist for the 2012 Tampa Bay WEDU Be More Involved community service award.
