Regional Hospital Volunteer Leadership Networking Breakfast
September 20, 2013, 9 a.m. - 11 a.m.


In today’s hospital volunteer world, much of our professional training and development can be accomplished through using technology.  However, face-to-face peer interactions are critical to solidify working relationships.  Hospital volunteer program evolution at the grass roots and local level varies widely.  This gathering of your professional peer volunteer leaders from hospitals in Monterey, San Benito, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties is meant to help you develop partnerships and to strengthen the hospital volunteer service delivery system within your region.   Feel free to pass this invitation along to appropriate volunteer services department co-workers and supervisors.
