Nov. 5: Volunteering his formula for success

Audio Journal’s Lombardi transformed disabilities-championing nonprofit

As a longtime veteran of the nonprofit world, Vincent dePaul Lombardi knows the challenges that come with recruiting, managing and motivating a volunteer workforce. From 1999 until his upcoming retirement on Oct. 1, Vince has served as executive director of Audio Journal, the Central Massachusetts-based broadcast outlet of the Radio Reading Service for the Blind.

Under his watch, Audio Journal moved from a basement facility to fully professional and accessible studios. That enabled many individuals with disabilities, including visually impaired listeners, to join the ranks of over 150 volunteers. 

What are some of the secrets to Vince’s ability to recruit, inspire and successfully lead a volunteer-staffed nonprofit? He’ll share his winning formula as guest speaker at The Communicators Club’s  Nov. 5 meeting, which runs from 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. at the Bancroft School, 110 Shore Drive, Worcester.

A light luncheon will be served along with the talk. Registration details will be coming soon.

Murray gives Communicators an economic backgrounder

The Communicators Club awarded its annual $1,000 Elaine Cencak Memorial Scholarship to Rosellen Quist, a Nichols College sophomore, at its May 14 Annual Meeting at Clark University’s Higgins University Center.

Former Lt. Gov. and current Regional Chamber CEO Timothy Murray was the featured speaker, getting us behind the scenes on challenges and successes in advancing Worcester’s economy – from employment to entertainment.

Rosellen has exhibited a sustained interest in a Communications career since she was in high school.  In her application for the Cencak scholarship, she exhibited a variety of communications skills and interests – and is highly regarded by her Nichols professors.

As a sophomore at Nichols, Rosellen works 20 hours a week in the school’s Visual Media Studio.  In addition to creating videos, she assists her fellow students with editing their video projects.  Accompanying her application for TCC’s scholarship, she submitted a video she made in high school on working with students who have special needs; a paper on “The Ethics of Violent Photographs in News Media”; and a presentation on the benefits of learning a foreign language.

Rosellen is focused on content creation, social media and public relations, and aspires to be a social media manager.

Clark’s School of Professional Studies was both presenting sponsor for the evening and also had a representative outlining the offer of graduate school tuition discounts for 2019-20 Communicators Club members.

Those very memberships are available now at an Early Bird discount for individuals, with equivalent corporate rates making professional development a sweet deal for communicators and employers alike.
