Volunteer NH leadership will welcome attendees to the 2021 Governor’s Conference on Volunteerism, outlining the virtual event schedule and recognizing contributors.
Governor Sununu will then make a special guest appearance to present the Governor’s Outstanding Volunteer Manager of the Year Award (to be confirmed).
The keynote address, “Community Building: How to Foster Inclusive & Connected Spaces,” will be delivered by Dr. Shanita Williams of Southern New Hampshire University.
There’s no denying that 2020 presented us with an opportunity to pause, reflect, unlearn, and relearn at an accelerated pace. In a year that was marked by isolation and division, it became the lesson that helped us to understand the importance of community and belonging.
As we reflect on our past and look to the future, this moment calls for us to come together, to learn together, and move forward together. As a collective, we have the potential to create change, but it requires that we take intentional steps towards building a sense of community in every space that we occupy - so that everyone feels like they belong and can be a part of the change.
This conference is made possible by generous supporters like the NH Elks Association.
