2017 ABE Volunteer Management Conference

We are pleased to be able to offer the 2017 Volunteer Management Conference (VMC) as the pre-conference to the national Conference on Adult Literacy, sponsored by ProLiteracy. It will be followed by the ProLiteracy Conference Opening Reception and Vendor Fair. At the VMC, you will:

  • learn new volunteer management strategies and ideas through 12 concurrent sessions;
  • get practical resources you can use right away;
  • be inspired by this year's award winners for Excellence in Volunteer Engagement;
  • network and share your professional wisdom with colleagues from around the state and across the country;
  • learn from national adult literacy leaders during a bonus lunchtime plenary session;
  • be invited to attend the Opening Reception of the ProLiteracy Conference on Adult Literacy for no extra charge.

This event is for both new and experienced adult literacy volunteer coordinators (and any other ABE professional staff who work with volunteers). Please consider attending the full Conference on Adult Literacy from September 27-30. The registration link below will take you to information about both events - we hope to see you there! For questions about the conference, please contact Wendy Roberts, Volunteer Outreach Manager, wroberts@mnliteracy.org or Cathy Grady, Literacy Services Director, at cgrady@mnliteracy.org
