About the Conference
For the past 27 years, Blaine House Conference on Volunteerism has provided learning and networking opportunities for Maine’s volunteer administrators and program managers. It is the only professional development conference tailored exclusively to the needs and challenges of leaders in the state’s volunteer sector.
Call for Conference Session Proposals
The Conference Planning Committee is seeking proposals for sessions at the 2013 Conference.
We aim to meet the needs of volunteer managers and service-learning educators who are very new (novice) or have a few years of experience (intermediate level).
At the same time, those with considerable experience are relying on this conference to help them learn about emerging issues, explore advanced topics, and move towards being an expert in the field.
For that reason, the 50 sessions are roughly divided into tracks: Need to Know (novice level), Learn to Use (intermediate level), Conference theme special topics, Innovative Solutions, and special issues.
How To Submit
Deadline for submission: June 17, 2013
