Ms. Groff has served on the section’s steering committee since 2012 and has been a regular presenter at NHPCO conferences. Her presentations include Volunteer Mentors: A Key to Retention; Medicare Regulations for Hospice Volunteer Programs: Creating a Survey-Ready Program that Demonstrates Excellence; and Hospice Volunteer Leadership Development 101. Members of the section will recognize her voice from the many section chat’s she has hosted. In addition, Stacy contributed her expertise to the recently revised Hospice Volunteer Program Resource Manual.
Groff currently leads one of the largest volunteer programs in the country as the Director of Volunteer Services for Tidewell Hospice, which serves Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte, and Desoto counties in Florida.
Outgoing Section Leader Sandi Huster says “I am very pleased that Stacy will be serving as our section leader and know that she and our outstanding steering committee members will continue to provide excellent service to the members of our profession.” Earlier this year Huster was chosen to be the next Chair of NHPCO’s National Council of Hospice and Palliative Professionals. In that role, she will be on the board of NHPCO.
Ms. Groff and Ms. Huster will begin their three-year terms on January 1, 2017.
