GRAVA members – you asked and we heard! Overwhelming numbers of volunteer engagement professionals operate departments of one and are in need of professional advice concerning daily challenges as well as guidance on particular issues, ideas for new initiatives, and suggestions on how to navigate sensitive situations that are unique to our profession. As members of GRAVA, we are surrounded at every workshop by peers with experience and expertise in the problems we wish to solve. But how can we efficiently connect with our peers in small group or one-on-one arrangements? And how can we ensure that we connect in ways that are positive, productive, and professional? Join Alison Jones-Nassar, GRAVA’s professional development chair, and independent consultant Katie Campbell, who has facilitated hundreds of peer consulting sessions locally and nationally, on Thursday May 2 from 8:30-10:30 a.m. for an informative session that promises to provide you with the peer support models and mechanisms you need to engage in short- and longer-term consultations, get you the answers you need, and unleash the peer consultant within!
