Save the Date: VM Summit 16 to Be Held October 25, 2016
Volunteerism has the power to solve the world’s most pressing problems — if nonprofits and corporations work better together. VM Summit 16 brings corporate responsibility and employee engagement professionals face-to-face with local and national nonprofits to learn how to create impactful partnerships that effectively engage corporate volunteers.
VolunteerMatch has hosted its annual Summit for nearly 15 years, bringing together employee volunteer program managers to discuss strategies and common challenges. Last year, for the first time ever, we brought nonprofit professionals into the mix. Why? Because the way to have real impact from a CSR program is to listen to your community’s needs.
VM Summit 16 will be held Tuesday, October 25, 2016 in Chicago, IL, with a pre-event networking reception hosted by Groupon on the evening of October 24, 2016. This year’s Summit is expected to attract over 200 professionals, representing over 75 companies, foundations, and nonprofits.
The day-long event will consist of expert presenters, interactive workshops, and opportunities to network with industry leaders. There will also be an invite-only all-day event on October 26, 2016 for Solutions by VolunteerMatch clients.
Registration opens Monday, May 16, 2016, with more details to follow.
