Does your volunteer program actively engage businesses and corporations in days of service? For July’s NVAVA meeting, join us to learn from Jerome Tennille, the Manager of Volunteerism for Marriott International, about best practices surrounding incorporating CSR into your organization’s volunteer program. He will give us inside tips about what CSR means to for-profit companies, getting beyond the day of service, how to leverage a company’s CSR program, how to say no when it isn’t a good fit, and how to educate your for-profit counterpart on your organization’s impact in your cause area. Leave July’s workshop with a better idea on how to strategically align with for-profit CSR programs to increase impact and satisfaction.
Our Presenter: Jerome Tennille is the Manager of Volunteerism for Marriott International, where he leads the company’s traditional and skills-based volunteer programs, ensuring they reflect the latest innovations, technologies, and best practices.
