Volunteer Coordinator Forums & Peer-to-Peer Networking Sessions
Volunteer Coordinator Forums are facilitated networking and educational programs for volunteer coordinators, coordinated and run by the Volunteer Center. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet colleagues, share ideas/programs, and discuss common concerns. Each forum contains hands on practical applications of common scenarios encountered in managing and coordinating volunteers. New this year are the peer-to-peer networking and discussion sessions. These are designed to allow volunteer engagement professionals to discuss topics and learn from each other. They involve facilitated activities and discussion with others in your profession.
We are pleased to announce our 2021 schedule. Spring sessions will be held on zoom, the fall is TBD. The schedule and topics are tentative. Look for updates to these sessions and registration links on this website.
