This "hybrid" conference streams live presentations from a panel of speakers to groups meeting together locally at many locations. . . Learn from volunteer management experts and change-makers from three countries (Dana Cory Litwin, Barbara Harringhton, Erin Spink, Carol Dixon, and Andy Fryar) about navigating uncharted territory as volunteer managers. This is not your typical webinar or conference! Designed like a Ted Talk meets late night talk show, you'll have the opportunity to engage in meaningful discussion with your professional network and set your course for whatever comes your way in the future! Check whether your area is already offering this program or learn how to organize a new site.
