Connect in Clearwater at Symposium in the Sun 2022!

Our thoughts are with those affected by Hurricane Ian.  The Clearwater Beach area suffered no damage, and the Symposium in the Sun conference will proceed as planned.

The leadership training available at this symposium will help you address the unique needs of volunteer leadership in your department. The networking opportunities give you the chance to share ideas and solutions with colleagues from all over the country. The vendors attending can help departments of any size, giving you the tools and equipment necessary to ensure everyone on your team comes home.
