2015 Conference Handouts!

Conference banner2

What a fantastic Conference!  The only problem was which workshop to attend!  But never fear! If you were unable to attend the conference or not able to attend all the workshops you wanted, you can find the powerpoints and handouts here!  We will continue to add to these as speakers send us their handouts. But the learning continues….

“Fusion: Integrating Standards and Innovation” was our theme. Our goal was to discuss best practices as well as some new and innovative ways to approach things in our volunteer management profession.  The result was amazing!

Betty Stallings kicked us off with a Keynote that challenged and encouraged us.

  1. At last, someone comes up with the “right” answer!

  2. Ind i mellem er jeg nødt til at rydde op i det rum, hvor der er stof, garn…og….og… Altsammen for at rode igen nÃ¥r jeg har ryddet op. For mig er det en inspirations proces. Rodet skal lige væk, sÃ¥ fÃ¥r jeg klaret hjernen til ny inspiration…og begynder at rode igen. God weekend.

  3. Excellent commentary. The other day I found this site and wanted to inform you that I’ve been gratified, experiencing you. We’re signing up to your RSS feed all of which will wait for your following post.

  4. That’s a sharp way of thinking about it.

    Hello, Thanks for the question. I chose a wiki bucaese:a) I wanted other people to be able to contribute information and ideasand b) I wanted the material to be arranged by theme rather than chronologically. A blog or discussion list are mainly chronological, and a discussion board or list alow you identify threads, but still are difficult to find your way round if you are looking for a specific topic. andc) The wiki was free and didn’t take very much time to set up.Sheila

    I am looking for the discussion prompts from the Conversation Café… there were some great parameters for a productive conversation defined that I would like to have access to.
