The goal of these calls is to provide an opportunity for volunteers and coaches to pose questions, get answers, discuss challenges, and share successes as you fulfill your roles. In turn, the LMSC Development Committee and/or the Coaches Committee can use the information shared to help build a repository of best practices for each of our coaches and volunteer positions. 

Mark your calendars for the next educational webinar(s)

 
Calls are scheduled at 8:00 PM Eastern for one hour and are tentatively scheduled on the second Tuesday and/or third Thursday of each month, with the exception of September and December. Registration links will be provided below for each discussion topic. Contact volunteer services for more information.
