November 7-9, 2018
MeadowView Marriott in Kingsport, Tennessee
The 8th annual ReFrame Conference will bring expert speakers – both from within our membership and from their respective fields – to share best practices in fundraising, volunteer recruitment, home repair practices, asset-based community development, disaster relief, and more!
More than 20 association members have been working together for 2 years to create a guide that includes a self evaluation and resources for best practices related to the stewardship of volunteers, partnership with homeowners, home repair practices, temporary staff, community partnership, and assessment & evaluation. The guide will be released later this spring, and is the inspiration for this year's conference theme.
We will also be seeking nominations for best practice awards later this spring; the winners will be leading conference sessions. We have several exciting guest speakers lined up, too. Stay tuned for more details!
Registration will open in late April and start at $149 for members and $219 for non-members. Registration includes two breakfasts, a lunch, and two coffee/snack breaks. Not a member? Join now and save!
