Volunteers and Non-profit Organizations: The Strength of our Communities
You are cordially invited to attend a Local Gathering in your community (see list below). Join community partners, colleagues, fellow staff, volunteers and members of community boards to participate in a networking and learning event.
~ celebrate our success
~ share our best practices
