    Program 9:00AM-12:00PM
    Program: Dive into diversifying your volunteer pool, with a 'Platinum' take away
    Much of the focus for volunteer recruitment and retention has been Boomers and Millennials, but a truly diverse program means many things. In this session, volunteers with different abilities share their experiences in their roles and discuss the importance of diversity. The firsthand volunteer perspective will be followed by a panel discussion from experts in the field about how they intentionally recruit and retain diverse individuals in their volunteer program. Whether you are looking to incorporate more ethnic or racially diverse volunteers, transition clients into volunteer roles or welcome and accommodate volunteers with different abilities, this session will help you be prepared and meet the volunteers where they are by practicing the "Platinum Rule." 

    We encourage you to bring your lunch and stay from 12-1pm to further discuss this topic with your peers or just to network

    Cost:  $45 for MAVA Members, $60 for Non-members

    Hosted by:  MAVA Professional Development Committee
