The Southern Illinois Volunteerism Conference (SIVC) has existed for over 12 years in various forms to provide capacity-building training opportunities to enhance the skills of volunteer leaders and managers in the public, private, and particularly nonprofit, sectors and to provide professional development workshops for volunteers themselves. We are very pleased with the caliber of our workshops and speakers at SIVC, and hope you will consider joining us for a day of learning and collaboration for the mutual benefit of all our agencies.
Registration information, the schedule of events, as well as the program and exhibits information for 2013 can be found on this website.
