The Volunteer of the Year Award
Each year, the Corporate Volunteer Council of Atlanta recognizes one member for outstanding volunteer leadership with the Volunteer of the Year Award, formerly the Linda Woodworth Award. Candidates are put forth by individual CVC of Atlanta board directors and must be a member in good standing.
Linda Woodworth was the Executive Director of the CVC of Atlanta for more than a decade. Under Linda’s leadership, the CVC of Atlanta grew significantly and became known as one of the leading CVC’s in the nation. The Linda Woodworth Award was established in 2009 to honor Linda’s rich legacy with the CVC of Atlanta and to recognize her contributions to corporate volunteerism and civic engagement.
