Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Southern Illinois Volunteerism Conference has been postponed to Thursday, April 7th, 2016 and will be at the Holiday Inn in Mt. Vernon, IL.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference in 2016!

Do you recruit, manage, or train volunteers? Wanting to target volunteers where they are needed most? Seeking ways to better connect people through service activities which strengthen your community? Love to volunteer?

If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, then attending SIVC on April 7th, 2016 could be of great benefit to you. Individuals who have attended this conference in the past included:

  • Nonprofit directors
  • Staff and board members
  • Business and community leaders
  • Volunteers in public, private and nonprofit organizations
  • National Service program participants
  • Students interested in the nonprofit/voluntary sector

The Southern Illinois Volunteerism Conference (SIVC) has existed for over 15 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 2016 can be found on this website. Please also check out the list of partner agencies who have sent representatives to the SIVC Steering Committee for the planning and continued development of the conference.

We look forward to seeing you at SIVC 2016!
