The Wichita nonprofit is set to host a free volunteer training conference on Wednesday, Oct. 24, at The Technology Specialist, 1823 S. Eisenhower.

The conference, titled “Leading the Way, Not Managing the Day,” is part of an international professional development collaboration between Volunteer Kansas and other volunteer organizations. Its aim is to develop leadership skills for people who work with volunteers, service-delivery programs or nonprofits.

The conference will feature video presentations from international speakers, including San Francisco-based transformational coach and strategic advisor Dana Cory Litwin. Participants will be able to digitally network with peers at more than 40 locations across the United States and Canada.

Nola Brown, executive director of Volunteer Kansas, said the conference will benefit area nonprofits.

“This is a great opportunity to bring national and international speakers and trainers directly to our community,” Brown said in a news release. “With many of our community agencies working with limited resources, we can provide a quality learning experience without our local participants having to travel.”

The event is free and lunch will be provided, but space is limited. To sign up, contact Nola Brown at 316-260-3353 or visit www.betterimpact.com/VMHC.
