As we launch our annual Call for Volunteers, take this opportunity to deepen your engagement in VSAE. Volunteers are instrumental in a variety of activities. They assist in developing educational content, mentoring new members, speaking at VSAE events, engaging members in community service projects, and much more. From short-term projects to leadership roles, VSAE offers a variety of ways to be involved. Volunteering is an excellent way to connect with fellow members, share your knowledge and expertise, develop leadership skills, advance your career, and give back to our association community. Volunteering is also fun and great for the mind and soul! 

More about volunteer opportunities

Making Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion a Strategic Priority

Content Leaders: Chris Busky, CAE
Kelly Ann Gull, CAE, and Heba Mahmoud

How can leaders guide their organizations and their industry to becoming truly diverse, equitable, and inclusive? What strategies and action plans create broader participation from underrepresented groups among staff, leadership, and members and how is success measured? How do you respond to events involving social and racial justice? These leaders will offer an open discussion of their associations' journeys on the road to DEI, including lessons learned, potential roadblocks, and next steps.
