About the Conference on Volunteering and Service

Points of Light's Conference on Volunteering and Service is the largest service-related convening of nonprofit, government, business and civic leaders in the world.

As the world's largest service-related convening, Conference brings more than 3,500 nonprofit, government, business and civic leaders together to shape the future of volunteerism and to galvanize the power of people to create change globally.
