Each fall, members of the Volunteer Council facilitate a multiple-week conference call series (now held on Zoom) for volunteer association Presidents and Presidents-Elect, entitled Strategic Conversations. These calls will focus on governance, leadership development, member recruitment and retention, fundraising, communication and technology, education, and moving forward in uncertain times. It is always amazing how much volunteers have in common, regardless of location or size of their home orchestras, and how the conversations and solutions suggested can be beneficial to all.

Strategic Conversations will be held on the following Wednesdays during the fall of 2021 at 4:00pm Eastern Time/ 1:00pm Pacific Time:

October 20 and 27
November 3, 10, and 17

SOLD OUT! Registration for Strategic Conversations 2021 is now closed. If you are interested in being put on a waitlist, please e-mail vcconversations@gmail.com.

Questions may be directed via e-mail to vcconversations@gmail.com.
