Volunteer Leadership Conference 2021

Volunteer Leadership Conference

Volunteer Leadership Conference is going virtual. This February we are bringing you a series of workshops facilitated by CAAA staff, UC Davis staff, and (hopefully) you! Even though we can't gather together in-person, you can still take in all the reconnecting and learning online. The conference will take place over the month of February and will be a great opportunity to continue preparing for the network plan, which goes into full effect starting June 2021. Be sure to attend the closing session on Friday, February 26 to hear from Chancellor Gary S. May.
