August 2015 Professional Gathering:
Aug. 27 @ Jewish Family Service
Most days, we love volunteers from corporate groups. Then we scratch our heads in wonder after a call from someone asking if we can host their group of 100 next week for their corporate Day of Service. At our August professional gathering, let’s compare notes on how we engage corporate volunteers and what challenges and benefits they bring. Lindsey Ismailova of Full Life Care will facilitate.
Date: August 27
Time: 11:30 to 1 p.m.
Location: Jewish Family Service, 1601 16th Avenue, Seattle, WA 98122
