Take the Leap | Embrace Change: AL!VE, Better Impact, & VMPC Event
10/24/17 - 10/25/17
Welcome! We’re pleased to announce we are providing another great professional development opportunity for your local volunteer administrators network. This year, we are pleased to partner with Better Impact and VMPC (Volunteer Management Professionals of Canada) to present a live-stream event this October. Our theme this year is ‘Take the Leap | Embrace Change’. With a live stream event in a different format than last year (think Ted Talks meets Late Night Talk Show), we broadcast to you national and international speakers without the travel to another location!
How does it work?
Same as before, your local group pays a connection fee and arranges for a location (with a screen, speakers, and space for an audience), meals and a local facilitator to guide local discussion). You can charge your local attendees whatever price you choose. It could be a free event, or charge a fee you determine per person and make some profit for your local network.
We provide the speakers & content (about 7 hours) and handouts for the day of the training. We provide the support for managing the livestream event and advance training for the local facilitator.
The broadcast days are scheduled for October 24 (10-5 Mountain and 9-4 Pacific) and October 25 (10-5 Eastern and 9-4 Central).
Hosted by Dana Cory Litwin, CVA
Session Topics & Speakers: Barbara Harrington, Sponsorships Plus : Overcoming the Challenges in Change
Carol Dixon, Providence Health Care: Navigating Organizational Change
Andy Fryar, OzVPM: Change in Your Professional Career

Broadcasting October 24 for Pacific (9-4) and Mountain (10-5) Time Zones
October 25 for Central (9-4), Eastern, (10-5) and Atlantic (11-6)
(same content occurs both days).
