Marie Eveline

Marie Eveline is the former Executive Director of Volunteer Ottawa, with over thirty years of experience in the not-for-profit sector having worked nationally, provincially and locally.  Prior to joining Volunteer Ottawa, Marie served as Executive Director with the Printing Industries Sector Council and the Canadian School Boards Association.  In addition to a Master’s degree, Marie has certification in association management and strategic planning.


Marie led Volunteer Ottawa through a three-year change process with the approval of a new strategic plan; a focus on revenue diversification; development of business cases for our key program areas; and,  organizational re-alignment and governance streamlining.  Through that process, VO managed to more than double its program revenues while staying true to the mission.


Marie believes that real change happens at the community level through the efforts of volunteers committed to making a difference.  It is only through engagement and commitment by a Board willing to take managed risks will not-for-profit organizations survive and thrive in the current climate of dwindling resources and expanded demands.
