Volunteer IMPACT Virtual Symposium

Presented by the Volunteer Engagement Community 

November 15-16, 2022 

Public Gardens and parks are more important now than ever and Volunteers provide critical support to the mission and success of these organizations. Volunteers allow us to augment the work of paid staff, to effectively engage our communities, and they share special skills to our workforce. Volunteers are our community ambassadors and they provide essential support especially during these challenging and uncertain times. The Volunteer IMPACT Symposium will highlight the myriad of ways Volunteer contributions are vital to our organizations and also how our organizations are vital to them.
