Beth Maxwell

Executive Service Corps of the Triangle (ESC)

Volunteer for 6 years

When Beth Maxwell retired as executive director of the Volunteer Center of Durham, she barely paused to catch her breath before volunteering with the Executive Service Corps. Within a year, she’d been elected to the ESC Board, and the following year she became chair. Her leadership, vision and creativity have made her the ultimate ambassador for the ESC. 

Beth not only leads, but steps in to help however she can; she led last year’s strategic plan, raises money, brings in consultants and clients and even bakes for meetings. When praised for her hard work, Beth is quick to recognize the people who have helped her, never wanting to take full credit. 

In addition, Beth serves on numerous boards, including those of Durham Regional Hospital, The Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, Big Brothers Big Sisters and The Forest at Duke. Thank you, Beth, for being such an extraordinary volunteer!
