Statewide Conference on Volunteerism to be Held in Greensboro, NC

"The North Carolina Association for Volunteer Administration (NCAVA) will host the 2014 State Conference on Volunteerism on May 14-16, 2014 in downtown Greensboro, NC. This year’s theme is “Looking Back and Moving Forward: Forty Years of Educating Volunteer Administrators.”
During the three day conference, volunteer managers and nonprofit professionals will attend workshops designed to enhance and improve their day-to-day work activities. There will be a variety of topics covered in the workshops, including: engaging corporate volunteers, social media and volunteer engagement, service learning vs. volunteering, and much more. Greensboro mayor Nancy Vaughan will present a welcoming address at the Wednesday night dinner event.
The NCAVA is pleased to announce that we have scheduled two dynamic speakers to educate and entertain conference participants. The Keynote Speaker, Rob Jackson, is an internationally recognized consultant and presenter on volunteer management from the United Kingdom. To know more about Mr. Jackson, check out the background on our fabulous keynote speaker. Mike Collins will present an energetic closing session on positivity.
In addition, NCAVA will host a special celebration at this conference in observance of its 40th birthday. These three days are not only about the education our participants will receive, but will also be an opportunity for them to network with peers and professionals across the state.

Greensboro is a city of rich and powerful history. It was the site of the 1960 Woolworth sit-in and the epicenter of the textile industry, both domestically and internationally. While here for our conference, participants can visit the International Civil Rights Center and Museum, attend a Greensboro Grasshoppers baseball game, visit the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park, and much more."
