At the 2014 Conference on Volunteering and Service, Points of Light honored the Corporate Volunteer Council of Atlanta with the 2014 Corporate Volunteer Council of the Year Award, for serving as a primary local resource for encouraging, educating and connecting businesses that support employee volunteerism.
Formed in 1992, the Corporate Volunteer Council of Atlanta has a rich history of supporting its members’ commitment to employee volunteerism and civic engagement. Businesses of all sizes rely on the CVC of Atlanta to deliver programs, resources and professional development so they may best leverage their most important philanthropic asset – their people – in their community engagement initiatives. The CVC supports member companies at every stage of development – hosting quarterly meetings on local or global topics, informal networking and specialized training led by academia and renowned speakers. The CVC’s annual IMPACT Awards, celebrating excellence in corporate civic engagement, are highly regarded in the local business community.
For the 2014 Corporate Volunteer Council Awards, candidates are local networks called Corporate Volunteer Councils (CVCs), which businesses join to share best practices and address community needs through workplace volunteering. The Corporate Volunteer Council of the Year Award recognizes CVCs that have a clear purpose, activities that relate to that purpose and measurements for success. All entries are reviewed and winners selected by an awards committee comprised of national Corporate Volunteer Council leaders and convened by Points of Light.
