Last Year's Central Illinois Volunteerism Conference

Renovation Through Innovation:
Focusing On Fundamentals Through New Techniques

Steve Thomas

Stuck! Simple Strategies to Switch to On!

Steve Thomas invests his life in helping a variety of organizations build leadership, develop people and create teams. Part of his strategy is helping people navigate through the complexities of human weirdness.

He genuinely wants to help people be better than they are right now and has a passion to develop people to get the most out of life and their leadership. Part of his mission…make work culture more fun!

Steve will walk us through a six stage cycle that all people, teams and organizations go through, and provide simple strategies that move you from Stuck! to On!

Rick Skinner

Moving from ‘What’ to ‘So What’-
Evaluating Volunteer Programs

Rick Skinner is the Vice President of the Volunteer Center at United Way of Greater St. Louis and serves as a member of the Hands on Networks’ National Affiliate Assembly.

You will have the chance to learn from a regional leader in this interactive session and have your questions answered relative to deciding how to track outputs, out-comes, and impact measurements to demonstrate the value-add that your agency’s volunteer program brings to the community.


Do you have a recruitment brochure you are proud of, or a training curriculum that is top notch? Bring copies and be willing to share in this interactive Resource Share.

Jamie Stout, Director of Membership and Volunteerism for the Girl Scouts of Central Illinois will guide us through this great opportunity to reflect on best practices you learned throughout the day, as well as an opportunity to showcase best practices you currently have from around the region.
