In July 2017, more than 500 professionals in various capacities of volunteer management joined together to discuss and map the future of the field at the first national summit in more than 10 years. A major goal of the summit was to reestablish a network to support and professionalize volunteerism in the sector. The Lodestar Foundation provided grants to fund a portion of the event planning and production efforts as well as post-summit activities.
