Volunteer Management Group presents the 3rd Annual Volunteer Management for Nonprofits Conference at University Settlement at the Houston Street Center on Friday, March 25, 2011, from 8:00 am to 5:00pm.
Join your colleagues, peers and leaders in the field of volunteer management for a day of educational workshops, professional development, personal motivation and inspiration, and networking.
This conference is geared towards a wide array of individuals: volunteer managers already in the field, individuals interested in joining the field, development professionals, college students, and individuals already working in a non-profit, whether in a senior or junior role, such as Executive Directors, Human Resource Managers, Volunteer Program Managers, Development Directors, and Program Associates.
There are four tracks for this conference: Corporate Partners, Social Media, Communications and Human Resources. The morning and afternoon sessions for a given track are designed to complement one another; however, you may select any morning session and afternoon session you would like provided they are not filled. Note, sessions will fill up and selection is available on a first-come, first served based.
The day will kick off with a keynote from Julie Marks, President and Founder of Volunteer Management Group. Julie will tap into her lengthy experience as a volunteer program manager and provide insight into what it takes to gain and keep Board and management support for your volunteer program.
Julie has over twelve years experience in workplace volunteerism and philanthropic programming. As a former member of the Charitable Services Group at Goldman, Sachs & Co., she was instrumental in designing, implementing and developing the firm’s employee volunteer program(“CommunityTeamWorks”), encompassing 45 offices globally and mobilizing 17,000 volunteers in 1,200 projects annually.
