In today’s changing world, we are all seeking to gain clarity – to envision new ways to use volunteers to help us achieve our mission and serve clients. Isolation from teammates and other volunteer engagement professionals can make it more challenging to find new techniques and solutions. We are here to help. TVMC is collaborating with VolunteerNow to offer free professional development webinars that we all hope will provide guidance to you during these challenging times.

Browse webinar recordings below and learn more about upcoming webinars by following the Texas Volunteer Management Conference Facebook page. All webinars are viewable at no-cost to you. Webinars can be viewed on any device without downloading a separate application. Thank you to all of our speakers who volunteered their time to quickly respond to the need for timely and relevant volunteer engagement training in the aftermath of Covid-19.

Thank you to our generous host and partner, VolunteerNow, for collaborating to provide this webinar series.
