AmeriCorps Texas Grantee Meeting

March 1, 2023 | Austin, TX

The subject line of the 2023 AmeriCorps Texas Grantee Meeting regards the need for engagement in its many forms. How can we inspire and support our current, future, and past AmeriCorps members? How do we keep service site partners and communities we serve interested and involved in our work? This year’s theme also doubles as a call to renew your enthusiasm for the impact of national service and take bold action as we move forward together.

This year, the AmeriCorps Texas Grantee Meeting will occur alongside the Texas Nonprofit Summit, our annual statewide conference for Texas nonprofit professionals taking place February 27-March 1. Grantees are invited to register for the full event here. Exclusive discounts are available for AmeriCorps programs — contact your Program Officer for more information.

Goals:

  • Learn new strategies for growth from a programmatic, member management, and grant administration perspective.
  • Connect with peers in national service and with OneStar staff.
  • Reflect on best practices and collaborate with peers to continue delivering high quality, impactful programs to members and service recipients.

Register by Friday, February 3, 2023.
