Did you know that the world’s premier conference for nonprofit, government, and corporate organizations is coming to your community this summer? The National Conference on Volunteering and Service will be in New Orleans June 6 – 8, 2011. Because of the gulf coast’s keen understanding of the importance of volunteering and service to strengthen community bonds and take sustained action, the region’s largest city was not just the natural choice to host the 2011 gathering—it was the only choice.
Convened by Points of Light Institute and the Corporation for National and Community Service, the annual event provides attendees with an opportunity to learn, connect and be inspired through a wide range of exciting and informative plenary sessions, workshops, special events, service projects, exhibits, specialized corporate tracks and more. If you or your organization works with volunteers in any capacity, this is an event you and your constituents do not want to miss!
For a dynamic, meaningful learning experience, the National Conference on Volunteering and Service offers multiple types of sessions. More than 150 workshops, 11 immersion learning sessions and 7 forums will be offered at the conference, in focus areas ranging from Disaster to Youth Leadership. Expert presenters from the nonprofit, corporate and government sectors will engage participants in hands-on sessions to explore topics relevant to volunteerism and service. Check out all that the conference has to offer here.
Be an exhibitor in the Community Champions Quarter. Being an exhibitor means exposure to more than 4,500 leaders in the nonprofit, corporate and innovation arenas. With a full schedule of registration, workshop sessions, networking space and special events, you’re assured a steady stream of traffic throughout the conference.
Attendees will also be participating in service projects across the city including the restoration of 24 parks and play places and a sports equipment donation drive. Join in service by contacting Volunteers@VolunteeringandService.org.
