Ioana Muresan

Ioana Muresan is currently managing the National Volunteer Center in Romania , a position which she has held for the past four years. The national center grew out of the local volunteer center she started in her home community of Cluj Napoca, the capital city of Transylvania . The National Volunteer Center works "to develop volunteerism as a valuable and irreplaceable resource in solving the problems faced by today's Romanian society, by supporting (financially and otherwise) the existing and emerging volunteer centers, publishing various resources meant to promote and develop volunteerism (website, magazine, manuals and so on), train and consult on volunteer related issues and volunteer management" - and lots more! Though it's in Romanian, you can get a feel for the Center's work from their Web site at www.voluntariat.ro .
