During the closing meeting of the National Summit on Volunteer Engagement Leadership in July 2017, a task force was appointed and charged with proposing a structure for a formal group that will leverage and convene existing networks, organizations, and individuals to elevate and drive a national conversation about the power and potential of volunteer engagement, as well as encourage collective action for nationwide engagement strategies.
The task force has been hard at work since the Summit developing a national alliance structure to carry forward this critically important work. The mission of the Alliance is to guide future collective action at the national level towards embracing volunteer engagement as an effective strategy to address community needs.
The National Alliance structure has been designed to convene staff and volunteer leaders across many sectors – including voices from traditional nonprofit, faith-based, health, human service, government, and civic organizations, membership associations, and higher education, and representing volunteer engagement professionals, executive leadership, development and fundraising professionals, human resource professionals, funders, and beyond.
