‘Leading the Way, Not Managing the Day’ Hybrid is the volunteer management conference presented by AL!VE, Better Impact, and VMPC.  Now in its fourth year, this year’s topic will explore how leaders of volunteers can move from managing to LEADING.  Our streaming event will consist of a 30 minute presentation followed by a moderated discussion with the other presenters (think Ted talk meets late night tv), including responding to questions from the audience.
