June Bonus AL!VE Academy:  Career Pathways for the Volunteer Engagement Professional
June 18, 3 PM Eastern for 60 minutes

There is a lack of data that speaks to the career pathways for a volunteer engagement professional, causing many professions to leave the field in search of other advancement opportunities. Join us for an exclusive session where the Association for Leaders in Volunteer Engagement (AL!VE) unveils groundbreaking insights from a comprehensive national survey.

Delve into data on career pathways for the volunteer engagement professional, competencies essential at every professional level, and the current and potential pay and benefits practices shaping the field. Be among the first to gain access to this roadmap for success, empowering both practitioners and employers with the knowledge to chart a course towards professional advancement and fulfillment.

This presentation was given and the Points of Light Conference in Houston, Texas earlier in June 2024.
