Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds today announced additional appointments to Iowa’s boards and commissions.
The appointments are not subject to confirmation by the Senate.
Terry Maloy of Albia was named to the Volunteer Services Commission.
Maloy currently serves as executive director of the Iowa State University Extension Council Association.
The Eddyville native moved to Albia after a career working for major retail distribution companies across the United States. He and his wife, Debbie, own a small farm just west of Albia. He is also president of the Monroe County Farm Bureau and chairman of the Monroe County Extension Council. He and his wife are active members of Trinity United Methodist Church in Albia.
One of the primary functions of the commission is to work with organizations and communities to help them use service as a strategy to fulfill their missions by engaging Iowans in addressing pressing community challenges.
The commission connects with those agencies in need with program funding, or by providing technical assistance on how to better utilize community volunteers to fulfill that need.
The Volunteer Services Commission works closely with Americorps, RSVP, Disaster Volunteers, Iowa Mentoring Partnership, Service Enterprise Initiative, State Volunteer Recognition Programs (Governor’s Volunteer Awards and Iowa Volunteer Hall of Fame) and Volunteer Centers of Iowa.
Maloy will be serving a three-year term on the commission.
