    Engaging Millennials: One Man’s Story And, BTW: There is no silver bullet!!

    August 9, 2019 7:30 am to 9:00 am

    Attendees to the breakfast are asked to submit one question on a 3 x 5 index card regarding engaging millennials as volunteers and donors. Please bring to the breakfast and give to Gerry at check-in.

    Presentation Description: Sam will share his story about how he got involved in philanthropy and volunteerism. While it is “one man’s story,” he will share universal truths about young people and the non-profit sector. What does it take to engage a young person in the early stage of career development, with a young and growing family and a working spouse? Sam will answer questions from his perspective and those of his friends and colleagues.

    There will be a moderated Q&A following the formal presentation.

    Attendees: Please remember to submit your questions at the breakfast check-in table.
