“Networking can be intimidating, whether you're introverted, have social anxiety, or just simply don't enjoy meeting new people. Being able to network and build new relationships is an important professional and life skill for success.”- Business Insider article by Jamie Kravitz
TAVA’s annual Give & Get is an event where “networking” is reframed. Join us to share your experiences and insights as a volunteer engagement professional, and learn from other passionate individuals in the field. As a community, we are stronger together.
You will come away from this fun event with:
- New professional connections
- Tools, ideas and resources for your professional toolkit
- And, renewed energy to bring back to your organization
Historically, the Give & Get is TAVA’s most-attended meeting/ workshop. We look forward to having you attend!
*Please note: this event is free for non-members of TAVA ($10 non-member fee applies to other workshops). Unsure about joining or renewing? This is your opportunity to get to know us better! Members, please bring a friend!
