This year’s Conference, sponsored by Chase, will be held in Washington, D.C., June 19 – 22, 2013. The values we share as citizens are more powerful than the issues that divide us. We believe that people are tired of political and cultural divisiveness and the sense of paralysis and powerlessness that comes with it. People want to do something that makes the world better, particularly their corner of it. This Conference will be about the power of service to bridge differences and bring people together to do what people the world over do best — help one another.
The Conference on Volunteering and Service is a don’t-miss experience for global social entrepreneurs to exchange ideas about what’s working and generate new ideas to create a brighter path for the future. You’ll learn how to leverage the power of individuals to address critical issues in their communities. Expert presenters will engage participants in hands-on sessions to explore topics relevant to volunteerism and service.
In our pursuit to provide attendees with an educational, engaging experience in service innovation, we have some exciting evolutions in Conference for 2013. We have created new opportunities for intimate, thought-provoking conversations about national service, social entrepreneurship and hands-on action.
