Whether you have been a volunteer with Queen's for decades, or your volunteer experience is just beginning, this conference is for you. Alumni Volunteer Series (AVS) is an ideal way to build your network with other experienced volunteer leaders.
Throughout 2021, the Queen's University Alumni Association Board of Directors will be hosting virtual panels and round-tables through the re-imagined Alumni Volunteer Series. These mini events will feature prominent Queen’s alumni as they share their personal experiences and professional insights into Equity, Diversity, Indigeneity, and Inclusion at Queen’s, and beyond. Stay tuned for event details.
