As we shared the results of the first year, we heard from pros like you about their needs. We've updated the questionnaire to reflect some of your best suggestions.
Below are a few new things we hope to learn:
I hope you'll take the survey and consider helping spread the word about the 2017 survey. The more people participate, the more information we have to advocate for our profession!
The survey takes less than 15 minutes to complete (it's even shorter than last year!).
The deadline is November 18, 2016.
As always, everyone who completes the survey will be invited to a free, exclusive "sneak peek" webinar in January (the link is at the end of the survey).
Take the Survey Now!
Thank you for all you do to enrich the lives of volunteers and communities.
MAJOR VOLUNTEER LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE SET FOR 2017
It has been many years since the United States has had a national conference designed specifically for the many people who specialize in volunteer management - those who have been designated to lead their organizations' volunteer engagement strategy in any type of setting. Some excellent conferences occur at the state level - and in other countries - but we have sorely missed the type of gathering once run annually by the former Association for Volunteer Administration. To the rescue comes the Minnesota Association for Volunteer Administration (MAVA) which, after deliberation and the involvement of a large steering committee of both Minnesotans and national leaders in the field, is hosting the 2017 National Summit on Volunteer Engagement Leadership, with the theme: Mapping Our Future, Strengthening Our Voice.
More details will be announced over the next months, but right now mark your calendar for July 25-28, 2017 (great weather in Minnesota at that time of year!).
To get on the event's notification list for continuing updates and news, complete the short interest form on the site now. No obligation, but it will assure that you get information about submitting workshop proposals, major speakers, early bird registration, and more.
