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!).
