Paula J. Beugen

Paula J. Beugen, based in Minnesota, has proactively volunteered together with others to advance a volunteer resources management perspective in public policy discussions surrounding the Serve America Act and other timely volunteerism policy issues. She also has spent considerable time advocating on these topics as a private citizen. “Many more voices from the volunteer resources leadership field must be heard in order for the Serve America Act to be most successful and lead to the greatest results in communities,” according to Beugen.


Beugen has been an active leader in the field of volunteerism and volunteer resources management for more than three decades.  She has served in a variety of paid and unpaid leadership roles in several sectors of the volunteer community over the course of her career.  She was a three-term elected member of her local school board from the mid 80’s to mid’90s.


Beugen is an independent consultant and active community volunteer.
