General Information

Share Your Connections, Impact and Stories at the 2018 California Hospital Volunteer Leadership Conference

The annual California Hospital Volunteer Leadership Conference provides our hospital volunteer network a forum to share our connections, our impact and our stories. Please consider sharing your organization’s experience in one or all of the following ways:

Workshop Panelists

Volunteer program toolkit workshops panelists are needed to showcase volunteer programs, policies, procedures and staff partnerships in care coordination/transition, community benefits, fundraising, mental and behavioral health, rural health care, and workforce development.


To enhance attendees’ educational experience, new sponsors/exhibitors are needed in apparel/uniforms/logo, fundraising, gift, health and wellness, equipment, promotional items, and technology.


Performers and entertainers, such as background musicians and vocalists, are needed to support the early bird registration and reception, opening session, welcome reception and volunteer resource professionals networking event. 

Patient Experience Program Showcases

Many new programs are being developed to enhance the patient experience, and we want to showcase them in an interactive way at the conference. Ideas include comfort carts, art therapy volunteers, and patient storytellers — anything that encourages interaction is welcome!

If you are interested in participating, email Joan Cardellino, CAVS, CAHHS vice president, volunteer services, by Nov. 15.
