Ohio Conference on Service & Volunteerism


For over 30 years, professionals in the fields of service and volunteer administration have gathered to share trade secrets and network with the common goal of improving the lives of Ohio citizens through effective volunteer programming.  Each fall, ServeOhio hosts the annual Ohio Conference on Service & Volunteerism for volunteer program administrators, national service program directors, AmeriCorps members, philanthropy managers, and nonprofit leaders. The purpose of the conference is to create opportunities for inspiration, connection, and building of 21st century skill sets that support the continued evolution and impact of Ohio's service and volunteerism professions. 


2020 Ohio Conference on Service & Volunteerism

Due to restrictions and safety concerns regarding COVID-19, ServeOhio will not be hosting an in-person conference in 2020. We are currently working on the feasibility of a virtual conference and will provide updates soon. 

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you at the 2021 conference!
