All VAN members are invited to be a special guest at Points of Light’s Conference on Volunteering and Service this year. VAN is pleased to offer our members a discounted rate of $200 to attend this three-day Conference. (That’s more than half off the usual price!) It will be held at the Convention Center downtown Seattle.  What an opportunity to meet volunteer managers from around the world!

Points of Light’s Conference on Volunteering and Service is the largest convening of volunteer, national service and civic leaders in the world. Each year, thousands of people who really care about the future of volunteer service convene in one place – to learn from, share with and get inspired by one another– to work together to increase the number of volunteers in the world and the impact of the work they do.

The 2017 Conference will examine how the next generation of citizens is making its mark and creating new pathways for direct action and unleashing their solutions with new levels of speed and scale. Join us as we unite in service to help 21st century volunteers discover and use all of their assets – time, talent, voice and money – to build strong, vibrant communities around the world.
