Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) Director
Heather Lamey knew before she went to Jacksonville State University that she wanted to work in a field where she could help people, so social work was a natural fit or her. More than 20 years later, her experience includes stints as the executive director at The Benevolence Center in Piedmont, Ala., and at the Community Foundation of Northeast Alabama where she served as director of Donor Grants and Standards for Excellence. As the RSVP Director at Positive Maturity, Heather facilitates nonprofits and charitable organizations that need volunteers. “We are located in four counties—Walker, Jefferson, Shelby and Blount,” she explains. “We are here to make a connection between volunteers with organizations that will be rewarding for everyone.”
Heather is one of six licensed consultants in the state of Alabama for Standards for Excellence® accreditation, best practices in policies and procedures for nonprofits and has earned a master’s level accreditation as a Charter Advisor in Philanthropy®. Heather and her husband Harley spend much of their free time enjoying their son Jack’s athletic events.
