Meet Shelby Wolff, CAS Membership and Volunteer Manager

Welcome to the CAS Staff Spotlight, a column featuring members of the CAS staff. For this spotlight, we are proud to introduce you to Shelby Wolff.

  • What do you do at the CAS?
    My primary role is to recruit and place volunteers for all CAS volunteer needs. My other responsibilities include working closely with the Leadership Development Committee to help develop and provide resources for CAS volunteer leaders, integrating New Fellows and Associates with the New Members Committee and providing support for our Regional Affiliates.
  • What do you enjoy most about your job?
    My favorite part of my job is when I finally get to meet volunteers that I work with at CAS meetings. It’s always nice when I get to put a face with a voice!
  • What’s your hometown?
    Muskegon, Michigan. If you look at your left hand it’s located on the middle knuckle of your pinky finger.
  • Where’d you go to college and what’s your degree?
    Central Michigan University. Bachelor of Science in business administration. Fire up Chips!
  • What was your first job out of college?
    I worked as a catering manager for a fast-casual, Mexican restaurant chain. The best part was all the free tacos and guacamole you could ever want!
  • Describe yourself in three words.
    Bold, friendly, observant.
  • What’s your favorite weekend activity?
    Sleeping in is my favorite thing to do on the weekends — also having brunch with friends or taking mini-trips to visit friends and family. Now that the weather is nice, you can probably find me relaxing by the pool or sipping wine at one of northern Virginia’s many wineries!
  • What’s your favorite travel destination?
    I frequently visit my family in Michigan, but that’s not too glamourous. My next destination that I would like to cross off my bucket list is Iceland!
  • Name one interesting or fun fact about you.
    I never learned to ride a bicycle. So, I really don’t know what they mean when people say, “It’s like riding a bicycle.” I’ve been taking cycling classes for about a year now, so who knows? Maybe I just picked up a new skill! Stationary bikes are the same as moving bikes, right?
