Who is invited to the Volunteers in Partnership Conference?
The Volunteers in Partnership (VIP) Conference is just one part of an important ongoing dialogue we maintain with all of our volunteers. Our program offering has been designed to be most relevant to active volunteers in one (or more) of our key programs within the University. While formal invitations were sent accordingly, any volunteer who is interested in attending is welcome to join us.
I have attended a previous volunteer conference. What’s different this time?
The VIP Conference launched in 2016 and was designed to engage in two-way dialogue and idea generation that would help guide the future work of Advancement and Alumni Relations programming. At that time, a number of key volunteer programs were new initiatives. In 2018 the conference built on this framework and focused on the development of volunteer skills and highlighted opportunities for volunteer growth and development. Our commitment to sharing experiences and perspectives and two-way dialogue remains, but each year the conference will present on topics that are relevant and meaningful to the evolving volunteer experience.
