VMGWorking with volunteers is very specialized job that involves lots of facets. Being able to connect people with meaningful engagements that give back to the community is very rewarding, but also demanding, and nuanced. By taking part in the Volunteer Managers Group, local nonprofit professionals can network, collaborate, and share advice on how to best serve our community. If you are interested in taking part in this group contact Meg Pearson.
