On May 22nd, Perri, EWI’s Entrepreneur Training for Success Coordinator, and Alexandra, dedicated EWI volunteer, attended Pfizer’s Strategic Legal Thinking Seminars for Nonprofit Executives on Managing Volunteers: Understanding the Legal Impact. The conference was held at the Pfizer Conference Center in New York City and broadcast to fifteen videoconference sites across the country, including DC (where we attended). Speakers included representatives from DLA Piper, Lawyers Alliance for New York, Habitat for Humanity International, Inc., DOROT, and Pfizer Inc. Topics ranged from understanding the differences between employees and volunteers to liability issues and mitigation strategies. All of the speakers provided excellent information about how to effectively manage volunteers in the non-profit sector. EWI was happy to have the opportunity to attend the conference and we took away very valuable information!
A big thank you to Semira, a wonderful EWI volunteer, for letting us know about this event! We had such a great time!
