Meridian Swift was hired for her first volunteer manager job in 1995 because she was “nice.” Since that fateful day, she earned the CVA accreditation in 2005, has won several volunteer program awards and has presented workshops on the state and national level. She poured her passion for elevating volunteer programs into authoring two books, The Volunteer Shelf Life and The Disruptive Volunteer Manager. She blogs on her website, VolunteerPlainTalk, and because she can’t stop talking about volunteerism, she podcasts on the Volunteer Plain Talk podcast.

She loves analogies and anything absurd and she never replaces an appliance until it can no longer be duct-taped together and then she cries while bidding her old friend adieu.
