Everyone seeking to make communities stronger by engaging citizens in service!

Since 1986, this gathering has provided learning and networking opportunities for Maine’s volunteer leaders, program managers, corporate employee volunteer coordinators, and service-learning educators. It is the only professional development conference tailored exclusively to the needs and challenges of Maine’s volunteer sector. 

Formerly known as the Blaine House Conference on Service and Volunteerism (BHCSV), the conference updated its identity to reflect the purpose and participants.
