Event Description:

Embracing Your Role as Mythbuster, Change Agent, and Leader

Are you a volunteer manager who’s ready to take your engagement to the next level? Join us to enhance your volunteer leadership skills even further, and in turn, expand the value and impact of volunteer engagement in your organization.

Your work has the potential to bring an abundance of skills, talent, and resources into your organization. As you lead and influence change to help your organization fulfill its mission through volunteer engagement, you may encounter challenges.

In this session, presenter Beth Steinhorn, President, VQ Volunteer Strategies, will explore:
  • What it means to have a Culture of Engagement
  • Building support for Strategic Engagement
  • Models for becoming an effective leader/change agent
  • Embracing your role as leader/change agent
You'll leave with a personal action plan to build leadership support, influence peers, and/or lead by example, so that you can embrace your role as mythbuster, change agent, and leader.


Beth Steinhorn, President, VQ Strategies, partners with organizations and their leadership to increase their impact through strategic and innovative engagement. The author of multiple books and articles on strategic volunteer engagement, she is a popular speaker and trainer, known for her interactive and inspiring presentations. As a thought leader, Beth regularly participates in the national dialogue about volunteerism and engagement. As a Service Enterprise Trainer, she has trained and supported dozens of organizations to become certified Service Enterprises.

Prior to becoming a consultant, Beth worked as an executive director and marketing director for education and faith-based organizations and spent years working with museums as an educator, manager, and anthropologist.
