As the Massachusetts commission on service and volunteerism, MSA convenes volunteer managers from the public, private and nonprofit sectors through periodic conferences and training events. MSA offers high-quality, affordable workshops on topics relating to both volunteer and nonprofit management. Workshops generally take place in the fall (October - December) and spring (March - May). Topics and locations vary. Most workshops are open to the general public. Some sessions are limited to MSA grantees.
MSA holds a bi-annual statewide conference on service and volunteering in the spring. This year's conference was held on Monday, June 12, 2017 at the Sheraton Framingham Hotel & Conference Center. Information about the conference can be found on the conference page here.
For more information on MSA's statewide conference, please contact Lindsay Rooney, Director of External Relations & Development, at 617-542-2544 ext. 212 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
