Conference attendance tipped the scales at over 4,000 people and lasted 3 days. The conference included keynote speeches from LA Governor Haley Barbour, political commentators James Carville and Mary Matalin and Daily Show correspondent John Oliver.
Both Jordan Goldsmith and Todd attended a variety of individual sessions that focused on volunteer management, leaderships and complying with CNCS progress reporting and criminal history background check regulations.
A highlight of the individual sessions was “Ways Volunteer Managers Sabotage Their Programs” presented by Martin J Cowling of People First – Total Solutions. A dynamic speaker, Martin also mentioned Jordan, Todd and the EC in his blog (scroll down a few to catch his post!).
The conference was a great opportunity to meet and interact with new people and both Jordan and Todd say they left with a renewed sense of purpose and enthusiasm!
