What is a Community of Practice?

Would you like to learn innovative ideas and best practices in volunteer engagement? Have you always wanted to ask your peers how they overcame a common challenge? Would you like to talk with other volunteer leaders and connect with experts? If you answered yes, then HOSC has a solution!

We have started a Volunteer Engagement Community of Practice (CoP). This group of volunteer engagement professionals meets in person quarterly to share strategies, concerns, trends, and best practices, give and receive support, share information, experiences, and resources, and build a peer network.

Who should attend?

Organization leaders and staff who manage volunteers are looking for support and want to leverage the power of volunteers better to advance their mission. Join us for our next meeting with outstanding professionals from our community!
