Event Description

NEW!  Disability COP

This COP is for those leading volunteerism within the field of disability.  Our conversations are aimed at prioritizing issues aimed at improving the lives and rights of those disabled.  It’s at the heart of why we do what we do. 

  • We’ll compare & contrast best practices helping each other shine. 
  • We’ll speak to the benefits of volunteering for a disability organization as well as helping those who are disabled volunteer. 
  • We’ll share what disability organizations wish others understood while recognizing that intersectionality and language matters.

Each month, we'll host different topics and perhaps guest speakers tailoring this COP to meet our needs.  Join us!

 Meeting monthly – the third Thursday each month – at 2 pm EST/1 pm CST/12 pm MST/11 am PST

For 2024, JUN 20; JUL 18; AUG 15; SEP 19; OCT 17: NOV 14; DEC 19.
