Scheibel Welcomes Volunteer Summits to Hamline

Jim Scheibel, professor of practice in the School of Business, will be welcoming two volunteer summits to Hamline University on the week of July 25. The HandsOn Twin Cities Summit and National Summit on Volunteer Engagement Leadership both teach new skills and insights to volunteer leaders. Scheibel teaches classes on civic engagement, like his first year seminar “The City as a University: Hamline Without Walls,” and will be bringing some of his expertise to these summits.

On July 25, HandsOn Twin Cities will be hosting their annual Skills Based Summit at Hamline University for the third year in a row. The event will bring over 200 nonprofit professionals and community volunteers together for training. Scheibel, who is also a former board member and chair of HandsOn Twin Cities, will give a greeting to the attendees, and he will be leading a discussion over lunch.

Following the HandsOn Twin Cities Summit, the National Summit on Volunteer Engagement Leadership will take place on July 26-28 at Hamline University. With more than 100 breakout sessions and more than 450 attendees from across the country, this summit brings together volunteer leaders to discuss strategies to inspire, engage, and organize communities. In addition to welcoming the group to Hamline, Scheibel helped plan the event as a member of the steering committee, and he will present in a session called “National Strategy: Expanding the Higher Education Connection.”
