Volunteer of the Month — Brenda Nonnweiler

Brenda Nonnweiler

If you have been lucky enough to be stationed in Hawaii in recent years, you probably know Brenda. If you have attended recent MCCW events, you might have met Brenda at the MCCW swag table. And if you haven’t met Brenda, you should. Brenda has been on the MCCW team for more than three years and is the first to step up and help out wherever needed.

Because of that willingness to say “yes,” Brenda is currently wearing two hats for MCCW. She continues her role as the MCCW Merchandise Coordinator and has taken on the role of Pacific Region Communications Coordinator.

Her work with MCCW swag has helped the organization overcome many of the challenges of maintaining and shipping inventory to women and CWOC groups all over the world. And her current project, creating an online store for MCCW and CWOC items, is sure to be a hit when it launches. She does all of that while also being a vital member of the Pacific regional team.

Thanks, Brenda, for saying yes and being an amazing member of the MCCW team.


January Volunteer of Month-Kelli Powell

Sometimes the most valuable volunteers are doing work quietly, behind the scenes; work that isn’t even seen by many. Such is the case with our January volunteer of the month, Kelli Powell. Kelli came on board in fall 2018 as the digital resource manager for MCCW. In this newly created position, Kelli was tasked with gathering and organizing MCCW’s digital resources — no small task in an organization with a 60 plus year history and new leadership every two years. Despite many obstacles, Kelli jumped in feet first and has been quietly doing this task wonderfully. She is part of a team that is filling a password-protected portal with information that will be able to be accessed by future MCCW leaders as well as members looking for resources — a resource that will keep on giving for years to come. Thank you, Kelli, for your hard work!
