Formerly known as the Blaine House Conference on Service and Volunteerism (BHCSV), the Maine Volunteer Leadership conference updated its identity to reflect the purpose and participants. Since 1986, this gathering has provided learning and networking opportunities for Maine’s volunteer leaders. It is the only professional development conference tailored exclusively to the needs and challenges of Maine’s volunteer sector, and it annually attracts between 250 and 300 volunteer managers.
