The Future of Volunteerism – A Panel of CVA Peers with  Jason Frenzel, CVA, Jennifer Bennett, CVA, Tracey O’Neill, CVA

Moderator – Faiza Venzant, CVA
As leaders of volunteers, we bring people together and speak the language of connectivity.  At a time when keeping people apart has been a safer choice in slowing the spread of COVID-19, we are being challenged to rethink connections, steward from afar, build relationships in new ways and become proficient with technologies we might not have had to use before.  In this session, we’ll talk about how the pandemic has changed how we manage volunteers now and what we might expect in years to come.
