A Smattering of Resources from the National Conference on Volunteering and Service

It’s nearing the end of Tuesday at the National Conference on Volunteering and Service, so I thought I’d share some of the resources I’ve jotted down throughout sessions today.  Why?  Well, because try as I might, I can’t always keep up with the twitter feed.  Plus, if there’s one thing I’ve come to learn about conference attendance, it’s that the conference should be just the start of learning, reflection, and action.  So as my day has moved along, I’ve been keeping a running tab of things that deserve more research.  This is by no means an exhaustive list – and I’d love for anyone and everyone to share some of their resources here, too.  Why just talk the collaboration talk when we can walk it?
