Utah Lt. Gov. Olene Walker will be joined by the president and CEO of the Washington, D.C.,-based Points of Light Foundation as they give lectures at their second annual Utah Conference on Volunteerism.
The 1996 conference theme is: “Service … our Legacy and our Future.” It will run April 11-12 at the Little America Hotel in Salt Lake City.
Michael Call, executive director of the Commission on Volunteers said, “Conference attendees have the opportunity to select from close to 50 different workshops, including volunteer recruitment, public speaking, diversity in the workplace, grant writing and many others.”
He added that, “It is an ideal opportunity for volunteer coordinators, agency directors, volunteers and other interested parties to learn new skills and network with others from the service sector.”
The conference, which will be hosted by the Commission on Volunteers, is cosponsored by the Utah Directors of Volunteers, the Serving Utah Network, Utah’s Volunteer Centers and the State Office of Education.
Walker obtained her bachelor’s from BYU, master’s from Stanford University and Ph.D. from the University of Utah.
She served as a director of the Salt Lake Education Foundation and The Utah Division of Community Development.
