As part of the Opening Plenary session at Service Unites 2018, we are focusing on women’s empowerment – and specifically how women can empower women. We will frame the discussion around what an empowering sisterhood looks like with living, breathing examples of the simple things we all can do to help another woman, another girl, in our life. What are we asking YOU to do? Answer this question on video: "What is the best piece of advice you were ever given from another woman?"

Guest post from Roger Hancock, manager of community affairs at CSAA Insurance Group: In the many years I’ve spent attending the Points of Light’s conference, I’ve seen a lot. I’ve met presidents and first ladies, the son and brother of a president (here’s looking at you, Neil Bush!), members of Congress, entertainers and athletes. More importantly, I’ve met people who I have learned from, networked with, enjoyed a beer with, and who have helped me be a leader in the field of corporate volunteer management. Here are five reasons why you should join me in Atlanta in June.

Guest post from Amy Lytle, executive director of HandsOn NWNC: "Since beginning my work in the volunteering and service sector in 1998, I have attended all but two Points of Light conferences. And I go back year after year, even during the tightest of budget times – something I know many nonprofit professionals understand – because I continue to find unmet value in the opportunities this event has to offer. Here’s why."
ATLANTA – March 12, 2018 – Points of Light will bring its annual conference, Service Unites, back to Atlanta this year, from June 18-20.
