2015 VolunteerMatch Summit - December 1 - 2, 2015

The VolunteerMatch Summit is a place for like-minded professionals in the fields of employee engagement and corporate responsibility to get together, share best practices, and learn from industry experts.

The previous 13 Summits had only been open to VolunteerMatch corporate clients. 2015 marked the first year we opened our doors to all companies committed to community engagement, as well as national and local nonprofits.

On December 1-2, 2015, all attendees came together in Oakland, CA to explore ways to work across sections, harnessing knowledge, resources and passions of volunteers to solve the world's most pressing problems. Check out some of the insights and takeaways from this event.
