2021 Campaign & Volunteer Dates

Mark your calendars for this year’s volunteer and Employee Campaign Coordinator (ECC) training dates.  After a difficult 2020, we can’t wait for new opportunities which this year’s campaign will afford our volunteers. This year’s training will be focused on re-engaging employees and re-establishing best practices for making fundraising fun!

Whether you are a veteran ECC or a first time campaign volunteer, you will find this session to be a significant help.

You will take away:

  1. Key information on how to coordinate your campaign
  2. Learn about and how to access the support and tools available and
  3. Get best practices from coordinators who have found their key to a successful, not stressful, employee campaign.
