For generations, engaging volunteers has been a critical strategic element that communities use to solve problems. The pandemic disrupted society’s reliance on volunteers. Yes, disruption can be devastating, it can also release us from the tyranny of doing things “the way we’ve always done them.” Disruption invites us to revisit, rethink, and reinvent the way we achieve our missions.
Our featured presenter, Beth Steinhorn, will share stories of organizations that unlocked their potential in the face of disruption. She will also share the lessons these organizations learned, which you, too, can apply, regardless of what the future holds. The program will also be a preview of the new book, Transforming Disruption to Impact: Rethinking Volunteer Engagement for a Rapidly Changing World, featuring co-authors Beth Steinhorn and Craig Young. Craig Young is a member of the Encore Network Leadership Council and is founder and executive director of Inspiring Service.
