Announcing the 2021 Virtual National Service Training Conference & Call for Proposals

Save the Date for May 4-7, 2021

Dear Friend,

Given the ongoing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, America's Service Commissions (ASC) will be taking our regional conferences 100% virtual this spring and consolidating into one BIG virtual event from May 4-7, 2021.

Save the date!

The purpose of ASC's National Service Training Conference is to support and guide national service leaders in growing their resources, tending to their specific needs, building their capacities, and creating a space for inspiration. The 2021 virtual conference will provide practical tools while facilitating thoughtful discussions among national service practitioners in the field - i.e., YOU!

​The theme for the 2021 training is "Take Action and Persevere," language that comes from the AmeriCorps Pledge. This theme recognizes the significant challenges that impacted all of us in 2020; and yet, AmeriCorps programs and members have lived up to their pledge to not sit idly by, but to take action and persevere during the most difficult of times.
