Volunteer Conference 2017

Volunteer Conference, September 15–17

Cosponsored by the Alumnae Association and The Mount Holyoke Fund, the conference brings reunion chairs and class presidents together with Mount Holyoke Fund volunteers to gain training in their discipline, collaborate with each other, and gain timely insight into the current environment at Mount Holyoke. Volunteers will leave with the education, information, contacts, and skills needed to move forward in their respective roles. This series of workshops brings reunion chairs and class presidents together with Mount Holyoke Fund volunteers for collaborative breakout sessions, with essential workshops held throughout the weekend.
