Oregon Heritage Virtual Summit: Investing in Volunteers

2023 Oregon Heritage VIRTUAL Summit

Investing in Your Volunteers: Engage, Sustain, Value

April 27-28, 2023


A report released by the Oregon Heritage Commission in 2020 demonstrates that the work volunteers do within heritage organizations is indispensable to the preservation of Oregon’s heritage. In fact, most heritage organizations are operated primarily by volunteers. The world clearly saw the impact the pandemic had on volunteer programs across the nonprofit field and building back these critical stakeholder groups is key to continuing to carry out the mission of heritage organizations across the state. Join us April 27-28 as have facilitated conversation around community engagement and how that impacts volunteer strategies, panel discussions hearing from fellow volunteer managers and volunteers, and a practical workshop to help you engage, retain, and value volunteers in a way that impacts both the volunteer and the organization in meaningful ways.

The entire Summit is virtual and will occur online via Zoom. Since the pandemic, Oregon Heritage has committed to keeping the Summit in the odd year virtual whereas our Oregon Heritage Conference in the even years will be in person at various places across the state.
