Alumni Volunteer Summit 2023

Kingston, ON

Alumni Volunteer Summit (AVS) 2023 is the perfect opportunity for Queen’s alumni volunteers to expand their network, connect and reconnect, with other experienced volunteer leaders. 

Start your weekend by connecting with the Queen’s University Alumni Association (QUAA) Board of Directors and fellow alumni at The Grad Club for an informal social on Friday, June 16 at 6:30 pm.

AVS will begin on Saturday, June 17 in Ellis Hall at 8 am. Throughout the day, you will hear from a panel of student leaders, keynote speakers, and Vice-Principal Bertrand all while reconnecting and sharing best practices across volunteer roles.
