San Francisco, CA, May 16, 2016 – VolunteerMatch, the web’s largest volunteer engagement network, announced today that it has opened registration for VM Summit 16, which will be held on October 25, 2016 in Chicago, IL.
VolunteerMatch’s annual conference, officially known as VM Summit, brings companies and nonprofits together in one place to learn and collaborate on how to create better, more impactful partnerships, and harness the power of corporate volunteering for real community impact.
Highlights of VM Summit 16 include a keynote presentation from internationally-recognized philanthropy expert and author Lisa Dietlin, opening reception and sessions from hosting company Groupon, as well as panels of volunteer engagement and corporate social responsibility (CSR) experts. VM Summit 16 will also include interactive sessions, workshops, and networking opportunities.
“Teams of corporate volunteers and nonprofits who engage volunteers have the same end goal: To improve communities,” says Bree von Faith, Senior Marketing Manager and VM Summit 16 Event Manager. “However, there are too few opportunities for these two groups to meet face-to-face and figure out how to have the greatest impact, together. That’s what VM Summit is for.”
Clients of YourMatch™, VolunteerMatch’s solution for companies and other groups with large-scale volunteer management needs, are invited to attend an additional day of networking, workshops and panels on October 26, 2016.
