2022 PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SERIES:

VCC Training: Overview of 2022 Volunteer Management Progress Report

Thursday, July 21st | 11:30-1pm | Mourning Hope

We will be distributing and reviewing elements of the 2022 Volunteer Management Progress Report produced by Volunteer Pro. Each year Volunteer Pro puts together important data that Volunteer Coordinators/Managers can use to help them grow and learn about the most recent trends in the field. This year's report investigates the extent of which volunteer-driven organizations have been affected in regards to opportunities, engagement and hours, in comparison to pre-pandemic levels.

We will also cover what digital tools are most commonly used by volunteer organizations and DEI plans organizations have in place specifically for volunteers.

You are welcome to bring your own lunch at 11:30 for some networking, or come at noon for just the presentation.

TRAINERS:

Alyssa Christensen, Grief Support Director, Mourning Hope Grief Center
Victoria O'Neil, Director of Hunger Relief and Volunteerism, Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach
