Meet the 2013 VolunteerMatch Client Summit Speakers: Jessica Johnson and Savannah Clark

On May 16-17, 2013 VolunteerMatch will gather its corporate clients for a day and a half of learning, sharing and networking. The 2013 VolunteerMatch Client Summit will feature several sessions led by corporate social responsibility (CSR) thought leaders. In this series of posts, we’ll introduce you to each of the speakers and what they’ll discuss at the Summit.

Building and growing a grassroots volunteer program can be a challenging and daunting task for any organization. Add in the complexity of creating a holistic cause marketing program from the ground up, and the task can seem impossible.

In this session participants of the 2013 VolunteerMatch Client Summit will hear the story of how Prometheus Real Estate Group created and has continued to evolve and grow their volunteer and cause marketing programs to what they are today. While revolutionizing the apartment industry, they remain focused yet flexible, engaging both the company’s employees and customers.

Jessica and Savannah will detail how Prometheus continues to improve program engagement through meaningful communications and branding. Participants will leave with tangible ideas to encourage their own programs’ growth and cause marketing campaigns.

This session will be presented by Jessica Johnson, Learning & Development Manager, and Savannah Clark, Assistant Property Manager.

Jessica has worked with Prometheus Real Estate Group for over 4 years as a member of the Learning & Development team. In addition to managing the learning function for Prometheus, Jessica serves as the Project Lead for the Promethean OutReach and Community Help Program (POrCH). This small yet mighty program has expanded recently from its base team of 650 employees, affectionately known as Prometheans, to include their 26,000 apartment community residents, known as our Neighbors. This major change was marked by a fresh new Volunteermatch website and their largest cause marketing campaign to date focused on giving the gift of sports and team camaraderie to people with disabilities near the many Prometheus communities located within the Western United States. Jessica has managed the process with the help of the VolunteerMatch Consulting team and trained POrCH volunteer leaders.
