IOWA NONPROFIT SUMMIT 


Mentoring professionals joined colleagues from across the state at the Iowa Nonprofit Summit on October 29th and 30th. The keynote addressed innovations in volunteer management and the closing plenary discussion challenged attendees to think outside the box to build a stronger Iowa.  Add a variety of breakout sessions, an IMP program meeting sharing IMP and program highlights, and an IMP provider board meeting and the result was a jam-packed two days of professional development and networking! Just a few comments from attendees: 
"The conference breakout sessions were fabulous! I learned something new in each one."
"The final panel discussion was thought-provoking."
"I learned some new recruiting tips in the diversity session."
"The youth mental health presentation was engaging and such an important topic."
Thanks to all who were able to attend! 
WHAT YOU MISSED ON THE LAST PEER SHARE 
MENTOR RECRUITMENT was the hot topic on last month's call. If you missed the informative discussion about recruiting males, tapping faith-based communities and hosting a successful mentor recruitment event  it can be accessed via the recording on the IMP YouTube Channel.
