CONCORD, NH – Registration for the 2023 Governor’s Conference on Volunteerism is closing soon! This annual professional development opportunity is meant to support and strengthen New Hampshire’s volunteer programs and organizations through training and collaboration.
This year the event will be two days. The first is a fully in-person day on Wednesday, June 14 at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College in Manchester. The second day, June 15, is a fully virtual day via Zoom. Registrants can choose to attend one, the other or both. Sessions and workshops are relevant to volunteer managers, volunteers, and nonprofit professionals, and include topics such as leadership development, grant writing, DEI, and volunteer management. In addition, the 2023 Governor’s Outstanding Volunteer Manager of the Year award will be presented during lunch.
Dr. Rachel Teague Sr. KM & Training Specialist at Southern NH University & Chief Chaos Officer for Disruption Learning & Technology Consultants will keynote this year on how her past experience volunteering – in her community as a youth, as an AmeriCorps member, and even in places like the NH State Prison for Women – have been integral in shaping her foundational values and her career path. As the world emerges from COVID, Rachel will demonstrate how robust volunteerism programs can affect everyone’s lives for the better and how nonprofits can take advantage of this time of transition to learn from past experiences, to innovate, and to inspire their communities.

Volunteer NH envisions our state as a place where people volunteer together to build strong and connected communities and brings this vision to life by engaging those communities to solve local challenges through volunteerism.
