Calling all CVAs! We’d like to alert you to an upcoming event hosted by the Minnesota Association for Volunteer Administration (MAVA): the 2017 National Summit on Volunteer Engagement Leadership: Mapping Our Future, Strengthening Our Voice.

The National Summit is an opportunity for current and emerging leaders to discover together how to build a new national presence, tackle the issues they face, and maximize their skills as volunteer engagement experts to improve our nation’s communities.

Please consider adding your voice to the national conversation! MAVA is currently accepting presenter proposals. Visit the National Summit website to access the details. Proposals must be submitted by November 30, 2016.

Content will focus on two general goals which are distinct, yet highly interrelated:

  • Focus 1: Advancing the national visibility and impact of leaders of volunteer engagement
  • Focus 2: Developing the knowledge and skills of practitioners of volunteer administration

More in-depth information on the goals and outcomes can be found in this case statement.

If you’re planning to submit an RFP for the event, you’ll want to follow the instructions and review the goals of the National Summit and keep them in mind as you craft your proposal.
