Tomorrow I am speaking at the Volunteer Conference hosted by the Institute for Human Services in Horseheads, NY. Yes, that is really the name of the town :-). Since the first time I heard “Horseheads” I have been trying to imagine how it came about and I must admit, I am a bit afraid to ask. But that is another story. I am so, very excited. As of an hour ago almost 100 people from non-profit organizations all over the southern tier of NY State have registered to attend the conference and, it keeps going up. Hmm… 120 anyone?).
If you are curious, as I was, check out a few of the mission statements from the various organizations being represented: mission-statements After you check it out, imagine a world where each of their missions is realized…. Wow. I can’t think of a better way to spend the day than by being surrounded by people who make a living or volunteer a major part of their lives working to make the world a better place.
I have attached the conference brochure, too. Pass it along if you know someone who might be interested. volunteer con brochure-final
I gotta pinch myself.
