NVCN Round Table Discussion

NVCN Round Table Discussion 
Getting on Message to Demonstrate the Impact of Volunteer Caregiving 

Thursday, July 27, 2017
9- 10:30 a.m. PST 

Program Directors Eric Ehst, Arizona's Neighbors Who Care, and Tammy Glenn, California's CAREGIVERS, can show you how to collect data and do the numbers.  The challenge they wrestle with is how to use the numbers to effectively communicate the value of volunteer caregiving in their respective communities.  Let's talk about it.  If we can perfect our local arguments, then NVCN can make a stronger case for us nationally.  We know that Volunteer Caregiving is one of the oldest and most utilized from Boston to Florida, throughout the heartland to the territories of Guam and Puerto Rico.  We know it.  Now let's find a better way to illustrate our impact and strengthen our ties in new arenas where Volunteer Caregiving remains a hidden secret.  To help us guide this conversation, please submit your questions and thoughts in advance to Eric Ehst <nwcexecdir@gmail.com> and Tammy Glenn <tammy@vccaregivers.org>.

Members Only. 
RSVP by Monday, July 24 to Info@NVCNetwork.org
